From Water Treatment Plants to Industrial Buildings: Construction Services
At Christiansen Construction Company, quality customer service is very important to us. We strive to understand the needs of our clients in order to offer quality construction services. We only talk of having completed a project successfully when the customer is happy.
Christiansen Construction Company offers both pre-construction and construction services.
Christiansen’s clients benefit from our many years of experience and hundreds of millions of dollars worth of construction projects. Added value starts with our proven preconstruction process, which shortens schedules, generates cost savings, and minimizes changes.
Working in cooperation with clients and design teams during the early planning stages allows Christiansen Construction Co. to realize project goals and exceed owner expectations. Christiansen’s team approach to preconstruction includes input from experts experienced in mechanical and electrical systems, foundations, structural detailing, scheduling, and purchasing to ensure that all critical items are proactively addressed before construction starts. Our project teams become involved during the planning stages of projects, and continue working on these projects through completion of construction. This ensures continuity between the preconstruction and construction phases, so that decisions made during the planning stages are properly implemented in the field. The end result is that Christiansen’s preconstruction expertise on pricing, scheduling, materials, building systems and construction methods deliver projects of best value for clients.
