Our services are tailored to meet the individual needs of each owner & project. Whether you are planning new construction, a major renovation, tenant fit outs, or additions to an existing property, we are dedicated to providing the highest quality craftsmanship and the attention to detail that your commercial construction project deserves.

We encourage you to view our portfolio of completed work, featuring commercial construction projects across a range of sectors, including:

Our experience includes jobs of all sizes, types, and levels of complexity, from simple renovations & vanilla shells, to new development and more.  The profitability of your venture begins with creating a space that matches your vision, schedule and budget. Choosing an experienced General Contractor is the first step in your journey.

Our commitment to customer service begins long before the build process, with vital pre-construction services. Our staff of experienced contractors provide in depth consultations during the planning phase of your commercial construction job, to save you time and money. We can assist with the questions that arise every aspect of planning your project, including site analysis, project estimating, value engineering, budgeting, navigating local code requirements, and scheduling.  Our owners are involved with every job, big or small, and take pride in building a lasting relationship with our clients.   

General Contracting

Hunnicutt Construction believes that successful construction projects are products of careful, hands-on management.  Proper planning is essential to ensure a smooth progression throughout your build, and keeping you within your budget and schedule requirements.  Our staff of skilled, knowledgeable commercial construction pros have proven records of accomplishment in their industry. At the beginning of your project, we work to identify any hidden conditions and long lead-time items; throughout the build we work closely with subcontractors & suppliers to establish feasible construction schedules. Frequent and open communication is key- we schedule weekly project meetings from start to finish, ensuring that the entire team is united in a singular vision. Regular consultations form the foundation for a great collaborative environment, ensuring that each owner will be confident in making fully informed decisions.

We welcome the opportunity to act as your Agent on your project. As Construction Managers, we will oversee the project through the planning, design, development and construction phases. We will administer the contracts with design professionals and the general contractor, always acting with your best interests in mind. It is important to remember that ideally the CM is selected during the pre-construction process, thus offering continuity throughout the duration of the project.

Construction Management

We believe the key to the success of many of our projects has been utilizing the design/build process whenever feasible. Working directly with the Owner to produce both an aesthetically pleasing and cost effective design, you are assured that everyone on the team begins and continues the construction process from the same point of interpretation. Our goal is to understand your design intent and provide input from a budgeting and scheduling standpoint, resulting in an accurate control of costs.
