Services

Our clients are a diverse group, so we provide a diverse set of construction service options and work with you to select the right method for your project.

McShane celebrates the opportunity each project brings and leverage our 30+ years of experience to deliver customized construction solutions.

We take a partnering approach to our construction assignments and are committed to forming strong relationships with our clients, design teams, municipalities and local subcontractor communities.

Pre-Construction

These 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. Our project team completes a series of evaluations and provides information for thoughtful decisions that may impact the cost or schedule of the project. This process allows us to expedite the start of construction and reduce any unforeseen situations that could result in cost or schedule overruns.

Design/Build

This project delivery method offers our clients the security of a having a single source of responsibility for both the design and construction of their project. As an early adopter and practitioner of the design/build project delivery method, we are accustomed to single-source responsibility and the ultimate accountability for bringing a project through a successful design, construction, schedule and cost conclusion. On a design/build project, McShane is engaged by the client prior to the start of the 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.

Our buildings are more than just bricks and mortar – they are our clients’ visions turned into a reality.

Design-Assist

This approach preserves the traditional contracting hierarchy while providing our clients and their design professionals the benefit of partnering with McShane throughout the pre-construction and construction phases of the project. Our clients typically engage us concurrently with their chosen design professionals. Not only are McShane’s project management personnel construction managers, they are also engineers who possess an extensive understanding of building systems, their design and how they integrate into a structure. This knowledge directly benefits our clients and typically results in sizable cost savings from both a short-term and life-cycle basis. 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

For clients who prefer to complete design prior to engaging the general contractors, we offer construction management services. Under this approach, McShane 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.
