Our preconstruction focus is directed toward the definition of project goals, estimating, design team coordination, and permit acquisition. We apply our knowledge and expertise to the representation of the owner’s interests through the project’s preconstruction phase and the issuance of building permits. Implementing everything from value engineering and managing permitting to scheduling, bring Sierra to the team early on.
We specialize in commercial, industrial and tenant improvement construction, with a particularly strong performance in concrete and creativity in sitework approaches. Since 1986, we have successfully completed over 14,000,000 square feet of distribution, manufacturing and warehouse buildings; 4,000,000 square feet of big box retail; 2,000,000 square feet of office; 1,500,000 square feet of multifamily and mixed use; 1,200,000 square feet of aviation related buildings; 1,000,000 square feet of retail, and over 400,000 square feet of public works and community buildings in the Pacific Northwest.
To successfully meet your project objectives, our management team will keep a close eye on each construction phase. We know that proper integration of subcontractor work and timely scheduling of suppliers are essential to delivering your project on time and in budget.
We have an unmatched ability to self-perform concrete tilt-up construction. We employ, train and support full-time concrete crews who have successfully constructed millions of square feet of tilt-up product for us over the last 30 years. Our in-house crews have the experience and skill to perform to a higher standard of quality than any of the concrete “crews-for-hire.” Applying knowledge from a general contractor’s point of view, we also have an insider perspective when it comes to providing exceptional work as a concrete subcontractor.
Our service department is available to perform miscellaneous renovation and repair work for office, warehouse and retail customers as needs arise. With the speed, timeliness and competitive pricing of a small business, we are equipped to manage your work with the resources and full support of our larger organization. With full service work vans and experienced project teams who self-perform the majority of the work, our service department is ready and able to respond to your calls. No project is too small.
Design-build projects offer the most cost efficient construction by relying on a single point of responsibility throughout all stages. Using the same key personnel for both the preconstruction and construction phases of the project assures consistency of communication and expectations throughout the project. We can offer cost-saving advice in the design phase drawn from our years of experience. By overlapping the design, development and construction phases, we complete projects efficiently and cost effectively.
