                                                                                Innovation :  we are open and receptive to trying new things


General Contracting

We are one of the few General Contractors (GC) left in the industry who can boast about their own skilled workforce. Most have migrated to offering Project Management Services where they must rely exclusively on subcontractors and outsourced labor for a fee. Our team, on the other hand, consists of highly skilled and experienced craftsmen.

Construction Management

Our Construction Management (CM) division was birthed from our GC division. Instead of transitioning from GC to CM, we expanded,and built a CM division that excels in the areas of Pre-Construction, Design Development, and Construction Management for larger commercial, industrial, and healthcare projects.
