Preconstruction services have been a vital part of Hill’s success. Hill was one of the first companies in Charleston to establish a dedicated Preconstruction Department and that commitment to client’s services has paved the way for success in our Design-Build and negotiated projects. In addition, that same department manages all of the lump sum bid work that we pursue. That blend of creative thinking, finding solutions for our clients, as well as keeping our pencil sharp, is a proven recipe for success for our clients. Our ability to identify opportunities, schedule long-lead items, and streamline potential constructability concerns is vital to our success.
Hill has been a leader in the Lowcountry for providing Design-Build services since the mid-1990’s. We believe this delivery solution is best when budget, quality and schedule are all ranked #1 in order of importance. Numerous private clients have found value in our service. We have exceeded their goals and been hired to do repeat work for them. Hill is extremely proud to have also provided Design-Build services for the City of Charleston, Charleston County Schools and St. John’s Fire District. We believe that when a public or private entity hires us to perform Design-Build work, is the highest form of trust and approval that we receive from the business community. People who value “one-stop shopping” find this service most beneficial.
As a company with six decades of experience in the Charleston market, our early success was cast in the lump sum bid market. We have never strayed from those early roots, as the competitive pricing from our self-perform crews and our subcontractors is the backbone to any successful project. Our database of over 5,200 affiliated building partners is constantly being refined to allow our clients the best access to the most qualified professionals to meet their specific project goals.
Often our clients have an established relationship with a design team but still want the benefits of our Preconstruction, General Contracting and Design-Build services. How can they achieve those services? The answer is Construction Management. This service involves “early-involvement” by a commitment to Hill in order to work with the established design team to provide cost solutions, schedule awareness, and resolution of any issues with site logistics and constructability concerns.
