Listen to Our Clients’ Needs

We seek to understand the entire project—including purpose, desired budget, schedule, and end result—before pursuing a plan. In other words, we don’t prescribe until we diagnose. Listening and accepting our clients’ needs as our own are key to success.


Do Work Right the First Time

We strive to complete all work safely and with zero defects. Quality processes are continuously updated to provide better financial and operational results, as well as to prioritize the safety of everyone involved in a project.


Be Proactive and Innovative

Given the level of trust extended to complete clients’ time-sensitive, specialized projects, we make sure to communicate honestly and address potential challenges before they affect the schedule or budget. We also recognize the need to embrace innovation and new ideas as the industries we work in evolve.

What really sets us apart is our highly trained people - they are the heart of this organization and are personally committed to the success of each project. Productivity, continuous learning, and innovation are ingrained in our culture. We live and breathe it every day.

  • The design-build concept worked exceptionally well for us and EGC pricing was very competitive. While this was not our first design-build process, it was the best.

  • Without reservation, your staff accomplished our project on budget, on time, and without any disruption to our continuing patient treatment operation occurring adjacent to the area in which you were working.
