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.

“You see it’s not all about the place – it’s the people. People and companies like Shelco that are willing to step up when others said it could not be done and find success the old fashioned way – with know-how, commitment, and hard work. If you ever need a reference for your company on a future project, please don’t hesitate to use USCB. I’ve been doing this for about 20 years and I can’t say I’ve seen a better construction firm.”
