The most critical component of any construction project begins long before groundbreaking. A full spectrum of evaluations, recommendations, and due diligence completed by our team result in a proactive approach to budgeting, scheduling, site review, project delivery and conceptual planning in a way that is tailored to each client’s unique needs.
STS will provide its clients with some or all of the following preconstruction services based on a diverse range of delivery methods and markets:
Using our proprietary estimating tools and databases, as well as timely information from the marketplace, our experienced in-house team of estimators collaborates with the project team in the development of an early, accurate budget. As the design develops, we maintain a watchful eye toward the budget, providing advice as to cost, schedule and constructability.
STS’s systematic and proactive approach to value engineering maximizes the effect of every project dollar spent and is a critical component of our process. This includes cost analysis, identification of alternatives, construction feasibility, considerations relative to labor and material availability, and effect on the project schedule.
Based on our decades of experience, the STS preconstruction team reviews the design documents to ensure the documents are clear, the construction details are efficient, and the architectural, structural, mechanical and electrical drawings are coordinated. We will work continuously with all design professionals involved in the project team to ensure there are no “surprises” during construction to impact the overall schedule and/or budget.

STS is the most professional contractor we’ve dealt with, with great attention to details and thoughtfulness. We couldn’t be happier with results – work was also done on time and within budget. We couldn’t have asked for anything more; we’ll be using them again on future projects.
Great service!! Always easy to talk to the boss about concerns and opinions on jobs. Really respectful employees. Jobs are well done with great efficiency.
I am a stationary engineer in the Chicago area and I have been using STS as our contractors for the past 10 years. I have had nothing but positive experiences with this company. The workers are efficient, professional, ¬prompt and courteous. I would recommend them very highly for any and all construction projects.
We have been using STS for our senior home care facilities for all plumbing, electrical high and low voltage work including nurse call systems. The technicians are very knowledgeable and experienced. As a senior home care facility, we need fast and reliable work; STS contractors work great for us.
