Shumate Construction is an Elkin, NC based, full service contractor with broad experience serving both public – and private – sector clients. Since our first project in 1993, Shumate Construction has steadily grown into one of the region’s most productive and respected providers of construction services. We oversee projects from small interior renovations to some of the area’s most recognizable architectural landmarks. Through our offerings of green construction we are able to do our part in assuring eco-friendly results.
We are builders. We’re on the job getting our hands dirty making sure everything gets done right. We maintain an excellent staff of both administrative and field management personnel as well as a diversified workforce of tradesmen. We take pride in the fact that we are a true “general contractor” in the sense that we continue to self-perform work on our projects. From procurement to punch list, we look out for the owner’s best interest and are the single point of responsibility for all aspects of your project.
We believe in a “hands-on” approach to Construction Management, serving as an ally of the owner through independent evaluation of project costs, schedule, and overall construction performance, including similar evaluation of changes. We develop and maintain solid, responsibility based relationships with the project team that ensure adversarial situations are avoided and that efficient, effective construction methods are utilized which result in projects that are built to the highest industry standards.
Getting involved early enables us to understand the complex and often unique requirements of a project, allowing us to provide accurate first estimates and constructability reviews. As construction documents are being developed, we are able to use our extensive construction experience to conduct value engineering reviews, develop precise phasing plans and make informed selections to help keep the project on track and within budget.
We place a high value on the interrelationships of design and construction. Partnering with owners and design professionals in an open, collaborative team environment can result in significant opportunities for improving constructability, saving cost, and achieving project specific expectations. The overlapping of design, permit and construction schedules can streamline traditional project delivery methods; often times enabling us to start construction before design work is entirely complete.
