Carlson Harris’s negotiated contracts ideally begin well before construction and create an open, fair, complete relationship…a partnership.

Refinement of the plans and specifications are made to fit the project budget and objectives. This involvement is where partnering creates time and cost savings.

Construction done properly, economically and efficiently, is an art – an exacting art – much like the choreography of a ballet. Builders and choreographers create – they first visualize the completed picture, then plan each movement of the composition, envisioning the perfect finale.
Even before land is cleared and foundation stakes set, the “contracting choreographer” has scrutinized the archetectural drawings and strategized the intricate sequence of steps to come. Timing and coordination are crucial. Permitting, materials, subcontractors, inspections, as well as unpredictable weather all enter into the ‘dance’.
A completed building comprises not only the obvious walls and roof, but hidden structural framework – electrical wiring, plumbing, heating, air conditioning and electronics. The finishing touches – colors, textures, cabinetry, wall and ceiling details, flooring and landscaping are endless. Professionals are strategically coordinated by the contractor to perform their part of the performance.
Carlson Harris General Contractors offers years of experience to ensure the creation of a perfectly choreographed custom product, completed to the client’s absolute satisfaction, on time, on budget, and worthy of a standing ovation.
