Local Governments Are Exploring Privately-Delivered Construction Solutions

Local governments are searching for innovative, cost-effective solutions to their building needs, yet many don’t take advantage of some of their biggest (and most often overlooked) assets – existing building stock and land.

In Virginia, legislation allows governing bodies to enable alternative privately-delivered solutions to help with repurposing underutilized spaces and/or developing ground-up buildings to more quickly and economically to meet public-sector needs.

To this end, Shockey provides design-build, CM-at-risk, and public-private partnership (P3) options – in addition to providing standard general contracting services. Shockey has also been involved in several multi-jurisdictional development projects (reducing initial costs, and adding long-term value, when neighboring counties worked together).

Even if your project is just an idea, it’s not too early to get started. We have pre-construction specialists standing by to help evaluate construction solutions for a wide range of project types (renovation and new), including Economic Development, Transit, Public Safety, Courthouse, Parking, Education, and Community Centers.

If you’re interested in brainstorming future opportunities in your locality, getting started is as easy as a phone call. Simply dial (800) 368-4343, and ask for Bill Wiley.

Long-term relationships with local governments have been a hallmark of our work throughout our history; we’d love to put our know-how to work for you.
