A waiting space…a vague concept…an aggressive budget…a looming deadline…a combination that can spell trouble for most businesses in the market for design and construction services.

How to turn a host of problems into an inspiring, finished space with architects, engineers, designers, builders, tenants, and landlords all protecting their own interests? The answer is simpler than you might expect, because at Schaefer Construction, we don’t think the way most builders do.

For over two decades, we have been strong advocates of a team-building process that time and again produces home-run projects. We’ve built our own team around players with the experience, expertise, and critical thinking skills to produce results under even the most demanding conditions. Our project management team alone has over 150 years of combined construction experience with degrees from Duke, Princeton, Johns Hopkins, and Towson Universities – know-how ready to make a difference for you.

Right from the start, we are eager to take an active role in the design process providing valuable insight on construction practices and timely budget estimates to keep planning on track. Bright minds and innovative thinkers mean you not only get answers, but the ones best suited to your project’s particular use and budget. Tired of the same old “Not my problem” mentality? We won’t sit idly by as predictable thinking gives way to difficult challenges, threatening the integrity of your project or sending the budget spinning out of control. We’ll be there with design-build solutions and value engineering answers, because at Schaefer Construction, we don’t expect to simply build what’s on the printed page; we have the vision and knowledge to make projects come alive.

Once on site, we’ll take the same thoughtful yet aggressive approach to scheduling, purchasing, manpower, and supervision, managing the details for predictable, on-time, on-budget results. When the unexpected happens or changes need to be made, you can expect that same levelheaded, responsive, and dependable service ensuring that quality and workmanship never take a backseat to expedience. It’s a difference that will make you think twice about ever using another contractor.

For the last 23 years, we’ve been building enduring relationships based on collaborative effort, mutual respect, and an understanding that when projects succeed for our clients, so do we all.
