Pre-Construction Services

Our Preconstruction team unites Senior Management, Project Management, and Estimators with the Construction Managers, Designer, and Owners to form a team as early as possible. As a critical initial phase of the construction process, preconstruction demands intense collaboration within the team. Facilitating such a synchronized effort marks one of our greatest strengths. By coordinating a constructability analysis, value engineering and advance project planning, we assure a cost effective budget, fast-track construction schedule and ultimately a successful project.


Our estimating teams unite senior management, project management, estimators and the most sophisticated technologies such as Timberline and On Screen Takeoff. Once the team compiles conceptual estimates and drawings are approved, the estimator begins takeoff work while the project manager contacts subcontract trades to keep things moving forward.

“By far Shelco has provided the most successful experience with the CM at Risk delivery method to ASU by virtue of their dedication and straight forward dealings with us. I would retain this firm as my first choice on any future CM at Risk project and cannot recommend them highly enough for your committee consideration.”
