Careful Accounting of All Project-Related Costs
It’s understandable to have budget-related concerns about going ahead with plans to expand an existing business or build an entirely new commercial structure. Thankfully, our Lancaster, PA, construction contractors are very adept at budgeting and scheduling. What’s more, we’re proactive with budgeting in that we consult with specialty trade contractors so we can remain updated on cost-saving construction methods.
For budgeting we use the Timberline estimating program, which allows us to significantly speed up the estimating process. This software also eliminates issues with redundant tasks (and charges) and data entry errors. We’ll also ensure costs are tracked with equal accuracy as your commercial construction project advances.

The Microsoft Project Management Software we use allows our commercial general contractors in Lancaster to coordinate all activities in a way that’s highly efficient. Because of the attention to detail that goes into our scheduling efforts, our commercial clients are typically able to:
- Schedule grand openings and other business-related efforts without concern about significant or costly delays
