Management Skills that Help Reduce Costs

"We have been impressed with their management skills, starting with preconstruction where they performed value engineering that reduced costs, lead procurement with detailed bid packages that brought our project qualified subcontractors and manufacturers and produced a schedule that would get our project completed on time. Slayden has continued this into the construction phase by managing the work to stay on schedule."

Randy Rosane, P.E., Project Manager with Water Environmental Services

This has led to the development of relationships between the project team and the neighborhood, which have contributed to the project in a positive manner."

Thomas Lebo, Construction Manager, Brown and Caldwell
