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.

Estimating

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.

“I have had an extremely positive experience in all three of these major projects with Shelco and will continue to seek them out as future opportunities present themselves. They operate with a high level of integrity and trust which is so critical to us in a contractor relationship. They communicate well with the owner, architect and our employees who may be impacted by construction activity. From Shelco’s President to the on-site supervisor. I always felt I could access the appropriate level of management at any time. I highly recommend Shelco as a general contractor which should be obvious by our history of retaining them on successive projects and intent to continue the relationship in the future.”
