We pride ourselves on our reputation to approach every project with honesty and a willingness to share information. With consistent standards for business conduct in place, we turn to professional software to estimate, schedule and track every step of the building process. We believe that a detailed construction schedule is the backbone of every successful project.

Timberline software provides a very accurate estimate of project costs. Once project costs are established and approved by all parties, your job information is sent to Timberline Gold Accounting Software to track and control costs. Every invoice and contract we receive is immediately assigned to the appropriate project and cost code. Budget reports and actual costs to date are available to you at the push of a button. Additionally, we utilize Primavera Expedition software to control the submittal process and follow contract management. “Expedition” tracks bulletins, change order requests, RFI’s, telephone conversations and all of the fine details of a successful project.

All of this technology however is only as good as the project managers, site superintendents and accountants inputting your information. Fortunately, all have earned documented praise for their professionalism as well as their attention to detail in providing a building experience that you will be proud to have been a part of.
