Baxter Construction


The Baxter preconstruction process starts with collaborating with the clients to create a focused plan that meets project goals, needs, constraints, and expectations. Our process is designed to remove many of the “unknowns” of a project and reduces risks for the client while also identifying areas for potential cost savings through estimating. With our up-front, client focused approach we work to evaluate the different scenarios and create a defined scheduled path from ground-breaking to completion.
