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

“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.”
