With over 70 years experience, our leadership team has successfully transitioned projects from design to construction. Often, when our clients seek design and construction services, they are not at a stage in the development process to commit to hiring a general contractor. At this point, we are often hired to provide design and construction services assisting in establishing project design goals, budgets and schedules to keep the project moving forward.

Additionally, particular clients hire us when the client does not feel compelled to hire a general contractor in providing construction management agency services to oversee specialty sub-contractors to accomplish their program needs. When our clients do require a general contractor, our firm also guides in the selection process.

We provide construction services customized to our clients needs. These services include cost estimating, construction management, project scheduling, quality control, value analysis, construction monitoring, building assessment and construction administration.

We are unique in that we can bring a contractor’s perspective and skills to a project.  Outside of normal design, we offer services to the client that can help them walk through the construction process, guaranteeing them that their project will have the quality they desire and meet the budget they set.

Deacon Michael A. YounginerSt. Peter's Catholic Church

Rich Spicer and this group have...acted very professionally and have gone the second mile to see that our jobs were always on schedule and in many cases completed before the deadlines and always came in on budget or in some cases under budget. I am proud to recommend them.

Walter LindlerIncarnation Lutheran Church

Rich is very responsibly and volunteers to jump in and help out with any task. I have rarely met a Contractor...upon whom I can rely on as much as Rich, to not only complete the job, but to go above and beyond. Rich is genuinely interested in helping others and provides service in a consistently positive and helpful manner.
