We have the resources and partnerships to tackle virtually any project—commercial, industrial or residential—for clients located anywhere in the Eastern United States. Our expertise covers a full range of construction services allowing us to oversee any project from inception to occupation.

Our focus begins and ends with you—your expectations and objectives, budget considerations and deadlines—whether it’s a $1 million project or a $100 million program. We succeed through pro-active communication, close collaboration, extraordinary attention to detail, field-proven techniques, and an unsurpassed work ethic. No one works harder to bring a project in on time and on budget. Maybe that’s why we have so many satisfied clients.

With some other construction firms, you know that the only tools they have are the ones they hold in their hand.

This is what makes Gold Medal Construction Management, Inc. the right choice for your next project.
