The Shoemaker Approach

As your construction company, Shoemaker offers a team of experienced construction professionals working with you to produce a high-quality facility delivered on schedule and at the lowest price. Our detailed hands-on approach to all aspects of construction ensures the very best value for your investment.

Our greatest strength in service to our clients is our people. We are a company who enjoys what we are doing and truly cares about doing it right. Shoemaker is committed to the training of our employees in all facets of the construction industry. This high level of professionalism in all areas of the business, coupled with our large staff, allows us to respond quickly and effectively to the individual needs of each project and each client.

Shoemaker is committed to a team approach to the construction delivery on every project we undertake. By working closely with the owner and the architect and engineers as a team, we will provide the most cost-effective design and construction program.

We manage the total scope of the building process by paying attention to every detail. From senior management and estimators to project managers, superintendents, and engineers, we maintain an uncompromising view of workmanship quality. Our work. Our subcontractors' work. During preconstruction and during construction. Shoemaker's high level of professional competence and our corporate and personal commitment to your project will ensure the successful outcome of your construction program.


“Safety First:” our number one core value.

We conduct all of our operations with a maximum amount of planning and care with respect to the issue of safety. Every project we manage is performed with the goal of zero personal injuries and no property damage. Every team member is educated, monitored, and coached in safe work practices.

Shoemaker maintains a proven safety control program, complete with a written safety/loss control policy, administered by a full-time safety officer and implemented by superintendents on each job site. Safety/loss control responsibility is also incorporated into all of our subcontracts.

No phase of our operations or administration is, or shall be, considered more important than accident prevention. Shoemaker has an excellent safety record. And we mean to keep it that way.


Digging, welding, bolting, lifting: close-up, the job site may seem somewhat chaotic. But behind the apparent chaos—behind the noise and the dust—is a calm, strong sense of order. Architectural, structural, mechanical, and electrical elements weave together at the right times, in the right places. Without pause, without injury, without waste, work moves forward, pressing towards its successful conclusion.

From modular prisons to multi-use thermal recovery plants, from bustling malls to high-tech data centers, Shoemaker brings its depth of experience to bear on each new project.

Our team of executives, project managers, preconstruction specialists, and superintendents shares its experience using an array of sophisticated budgeting and scheduling tools. Our project management software tracks thousands of cost events. Our indepth historical database enables us to accurately predict costs. Real-time computer links between each job site and the home office achieve effective data sharing and communications. These tools enable us to anticipate problems early on, devise creative solutions, and manage projects safely and efficiently.


Precise work. Delivered quickly. Safely. On budget. That is what our clients demand—and that is what Shoemaker delivers.

From early concept budgeting through final bidding and turnover, Shoemaker’s highly experienced team works tirelessly to serve each customer’s needs.

During preconstruction, our experience enables us to anticipate and bypass conflicts. We offer comprehensive planning services, including conceptual, estimating, scheduling, constructability analysis, value engineering, GMP budgeting, bid packaging, and subcontract purchasing. In-house specialists dedicated to all major building systems work with our customers and their designers to ensure the highest possible return on investment.

The Shoemaker approach puts our customers in command—giving them the information they need to make educated decisions. And it enables our people to work together as one, breaking assumptions and exceeding expectations.
