Due to the diverse capabilities of our staff we have the ability to provide complete services from the conceptual phase of a project all the way through to the completion of the warranty period. With our expertise as a leading builder and our state of the art estimating systems, we can successfully assist the design team in the development, review, soliciting and analysis of the bid packages for the various trades. During the construction phase our staff services include submittal procedures, quality control, contract administration, change order processing and review, and complete closeout documentation along with many other day-to-day requirements of managing a successful project. Based on our ability to self-perform more work than any other general contractor in the area have much better control of the quality, schedule and budget.
Garco Construction is first and foremost a "builder". We are proud to directly employ many different construction trades including laborers, operators, carpenters, cement-finishers and iron-workers. This diversity of trades has allowed us to perform all types of construction projects from small design-build buildings to multi-million dollar facilities. By self-performing a large portion of a project, we have more control over the quality and schedule of the work performed. Our employees know that we expect the best and since 1978 that is exactly what they have been providing.
