About Us

Design Collaboration - FRIEL Construction can bring an important perspective to the design review process from master planning to detail drawing review.

Team Building - If an architect, designer or decorator is not on board, we can guide you through the selection process.

System Planning and Design - Is a mechanical engineer or lighting designer needed?  We guide you through the pros and cons of these decisions and help build the team of professional consultants.

Detailed Estimating and Value Engineering - Estimating is not a one time event. As the plans and ideas evolve from concept design to construction documents, so do our estimates. Beginning with early pre-construction planning, we continually analyze the information at every phase of the project and provide creative ideas for cost and time savings.

Proactive management is based on clear and concise communication with all parties of the building team.

Before Construction - Friel Construction completes a full review of risks, unknown costs, and assumptions. Once construction begins, close monitoring of the project is provided through biweekly construction updates and budget reviews.

Precise and Timely Billing - We employ a full time, professional office staff charged with payroll processing, monthly billing, tracking and auditing subcontracts, as well as managing insurances, liability and lien wavers. We incorporate fully integrated budgeting, scheduling and accounting software systems.
