Value Added Services

In addition to traditional pre-construction, construction, post-construction and BIM services, Shelco offers programs as unique as our clients and our workforce.

Sustainable Construction

Sustainability is more than a buzz word. It’s a thought process, a mantra, a team effort to design and build with the least environmental impact without sacrificing quality or aesthetics. To help clients achieve their sustainability goals, we staff a team of LEED-accredited professionals. These specialists can incorporate green building technologies, register a project for certification with the US Green Building Council (USGBC) and select LEED credits to pursue. They also help clients analyze cost and construction issues related to sustainable construction and coordinate all necessary documentation and preparation of submittals.

Diversity Outreach

By reaching out to small, women- and minority-owned businesses, we strengthen our company and our communities. Through our outreach programs, we’ve achieved Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUB) HUB participation levels as high as 56%, and value the perspective and talent each individual brings to our business. To retain high participation levels and consistent talent, we offer:

  • Mentoring Opportunities to help businesses and their personnel expand their knowledge and experience in the construction industry
  • Project Information Sessions to help all subcontractors become first-tier vendors and suppliers
  • Strategic Trade Packages to incorporate various skill sets, budget values, strengths and work scopes
  • Joint Venture (JV) Projects to give our HUB partners an opportunity to work on large, multi-million-dollar construction projects

“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.”
