Planning and Development

At Shores Builders, we fully understand the need to coordinate projects and maintain strong partnerships with subcontractors and owners to deliver quality projects within the stipulated timeframe and on the owners predetermined budget.

Design Build/ Construction Management

We provide pre-construction services to the owner and the architect early in the design process to help develop project budgets. During that design process a guaranteed maximum price is established based on documents prepared by the design team and approved by the owner. We then manage the construction project to keep costs from exceeding that guaranteed maximum price. We also perform construction tasks for work packages in which Shores Builders is the low bidder. Self-performing these packages allows Shores Builders to help control and expedite the schedule.

When our clients demand accuracy that is almost absolute, Shores Builders can leverage its cutting-edge GPS technology. With a group of highly trained staff and the most advanced GPS technology in the industry we can deliver finished projects to some of the most discerning clients faster, more accurate, and more cost effective than other competitors. Shores Builders prides itself in its extensive equipment inventory. This diversity of equipment and technology is ideal for site construction where a variety of material can be encountered on one job. With the right equipment and a qualified staff, Shores Builders can generate a precise production schedule before construction begins so we hit the ground running.
