Our specialty is project management and construction management. We have focused our efforts on refining our management system, in particular the preconstruction stage, to work on the owners behalf to accelerate schedules and improve construction methods.

It requires proactive participation and leadership in the role of providing direction for schedule, budget, building systems and construction methods. Input must be delivered in timely fashion. It requires integrity, dedication, communication skills and attention to detail.
