Construction Management

Open Communication, Market Knowledge, and Broad Experience.

McKinley Building serves as your advocate every step of the way. We are proud of our partnering approach and have made great strides to create an environment of collaboration, cooperation, and respect with architects and subcontractors. Our historical databases and in-depth knowledge of the markets we serve gives us a unique edge on construction management cost projections. Our disciplined pre-planning means we think through every contingency, quantifying and managing risk for our clients early on.

Design + Build

A Single Point of Contact, A Singular Accountability.

In the design-build project format, we act as a single point of contact and take responsibility for project quality, cost and schedule adherence. The McKinley Building team consists of a professional engineer, a land planner, and project management and estimating staff members that have a minimum of a four-year college degree in construction management. Our team can find solutions for efficiencies to any project plan and save our clients a substantial amount of money and months off schedules.

We focus on listening to our customer’s vision and communicating these expectations throughout the design and construction process. The McKinley Building team can provide feedback on costs and construction throughout design, encouraging dialogue with the client and the designer. Design-build offers more flexibility and creates an opportunity for innovation and creative problem-solving.
