Approach

Services and Options:

We celebrate the opportunity each project brings and leverage our 30+ years of experience to deliver a customized construction solution. Flexibility is essential in today’s world, and every project is unique.

McShane Construction clients are a diverse group – so we provide a diverse set of contracting options and work with you to select the right approach for your project. This approach ensures the right fit for our client’s business requirements and organizational culture.

Pre-Construction Services
Our pre-construction services allow clients to tap into our extensive construction expertise during the planning phase of their project. By providing cost estimating, value engineering, life cycle cost analyses, constructability reviews and project scheduling, we help our clients lay the groundwork to ensure that upon completion their facilities are attractive, functional, cost-effective and sustainable.

Choice of Contracting Options:

Design/Build
McShane Construction’s design/build project delivery method offers our clients the security of a single-source of responsibility for both the design and construction of their project. On a design/build project, McShane Construction is engaged by the client prior to the start of design, and we assume the responsibility and risk for the services provided by our design professionals and consultants. Key benefits include an early project cost guarantee, a shorter overall project schedule and a reduced burden on our client’s resources.

Design-Assist
Our design-assist approach preserves the traditional contracting hierarchy while providing our clients and their design professionals the benefit of partnering with McShane Construction throughout the pre-construction and construction phases of the project. Our clients typically engage us concurrently with their chosen design professionals. Design-assist offers many of the same benefits as design/build, except our clients retain responsibility for the work of the design professionals.

Construction Management At-Risk
For clients who prefer to complete design prior to engaging the contractor, we offer construction management at-risk. Under this approach, McShane Construction commits to a guaranteed price for the project, providing our clients with the security of a construction cost that will not be exceeded. This method also offers the potential for our clients to share in the savings should costs come in below the guaranteed price. Our open-book approach also gives our clients the ability to participate in the subcontractor buy-out process to the extent desired.

Construction

Regardless of whether serving in a design/build, design-assist, or construction management at-risk role, McShane Construction is ultimately responsible for delivering first-class construction projects to its wide range of clients. We combine contemporary project management technologies, sophisticated subcontractor risk management techniques and sound safety, quality assurance and scheduling procedures to construct high-quality buildings that maximize our client’s return on investment.

Post-Construction

Some construction companies complete a project and simply walk away. At McShane Construction, we strive on developing long-term relationships. The foundation of these relationships is trust, and we will stay with your project long after it’s completed. We offer extended warranty options, guarantees on our craftsmanship and service strategies that meet our clients’ needs.
