PARTNERING WITH OLIVER / HATCHER

The key to a successful partnership with our clients is collaboration. Construction is all about relationships and the trust that is built from doing what you say you will and successfully working together alongside our clients to implement their projects.

We have perfected a working methodology that creates a synergistic relationship across the project team throughout the entire pre-construction and construction processes. This synergy expedites the process by allowing all team members to trust their decisions and keep the design and construction moving forward. Mutual ownership of every aspect of the project between our team and our client/partners ensures the highest standards are met, and innovative solutions are explored to stay within budget and on schedule.

We work with diverse stakeholders to provide new facilities, additions, build-outs, renovations, and upgrades. We provide full construction management services for your project from initial design development through occupancy. The end product is a facility that delivers the high quality, functionality, and value you expect. With a track record of satisfied customers and successful projects, it’s no surprise that every year 80% of our revenue is generated by our ongoing relationships with past clients.
