Providing general contracting services is the largest part of our business volume. As a general contractor, we perform work on a lump sum basis and between our ability to self perform work and our competitive subcontractor resources, we can build a variety of projects for an economical cost and an aggressive schedule. Always working as a team with the partnership of the owners and architects/engineers. The general contracting services include Safety, Cost control, Scheduling, and QA/QC.
As a construction manager, C. H. Schwertner & Son, Inc. works hand-in-hand with the owner through all phases of a project. As an owner, there is an enormous advantage to having our construction management services working for you in the planning of your project. Understanding the cost impact of selecting a certain plot of land to develop or an existing building to renovate will save you time and money. During the design process, C. H. Schwertner & Son, Inc. can lower the construction cost by using value engineering concepts and cost effective materials and equipment. The construction phase will be managed to deliver an on schedule or ahead of schedule project. With all the project costs identified and controlled for the best interest of the client. Our construction management services can be obtained at a negotiated fee.
CHS has the experience and resources to assemble a qualified and efficient design/build team. The advantages of pursuing a design/build project start and end with schedule. As an owner, if you have a construction need that is on a tight deadline this service will suit your needs. CHS has worked successfully with several architect/engineering firms to complete projects within narrow time frames. As the design of the project is progressing, CHS can start the construction and follow through with finishes as the design reaches a completion of 100%. Just like with our construction management services, we can value engineer projects through the design to avoid unnecessary spending. CHS’s design build services can be obtained at a lump sum price if the project concept is fully defined or at a cost plus a negotiated fee if the project has not been fully defined.
