We are a hands-on company with an affinity for details. We assemble a qualified team for every project and we proactively manage each stage of shop fabrication, field construction, and detailed installation. Our project delivery method ensures quality, and we believe that quality is the foundation for gaining the confidence of our clientele.



As architects, our collaboration with artists and design professionals includes complete services from schematic through construction documentation phases of design. We respond to every project with rigorous design synthesis and practical knowledge. We emphasize communication, research, and creative exploration of solutions for each design to assist our clientele in the realization of their projects.



Our master builder expertise is a valuable resource for the early stages of architecture, design, and fine art projects. We provide consultation services that inform the architect and owner decision-making process and improve project efficiency well before ground is broken. Our expertise includes constructability analysis, Building Information Modeling [BIM], cost estimation, schedule development, and value engineering solutions.





Specialized Construction believes that every successful project results from the support of a well-organized team. To ensure success, our company provides integrated services as both architect and contractor for buildings and site-specific installations. This continuum of care includes architectural design, pre-construction development, and general contracting.


Trained as architects, we have developed an appreciation for extraordinary works of art and well-considered design. We have cultivated complex problem solving skills and a thorough understanding of building systems integration. As contractors, we transcend a singular profession by collaborating with talented trades-people and skilled fabricators to provide the best solutions for each project.


Our approach to teamwork produces exceptional quality and value for our clients.
