Shockey Ranked Among Best School Contractors in the USA

Howard Shockey & Sons, Inc. has been named one of the “Best School Contractors” in the United States by General Contractor magazine.

In the last 15 years, the Shockey team has built nearly five million square feet of space for educational clients.

Shockey offers a significant depth of K-12 school construction experience and builds with student-centered learning in mind. The hallmark of Shockey’s approach is partnering with educational clients and design teams to build value-driven, safe environments where student creativity, collaboration, connection, and engagement flourish.

Creating meaningful educational buildings with lasting appeal is one of the smartest investments a school board can make. “Our clients want educational buildings that function well, open on time, and look good for decades, and that’s what we strive to deliver every time,” says Jeff Boehm, President of Shockey.

A collaborative, transparent delivery process is what sets Shockey apart. While Shockey often works within the traditional design/bid/build model (where the construction award goes to the lowest responsive bidder), Shockey also excels as a Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) procurement option, where the builder is retained through a careful examination of best value. Finally, Shockey has delivered numerous schools via public-private partnership — wherein Shockey serves as a partner to the local school district, delivering high-quality educational facilities under a design-build model.

About this new ranking, the publisher states, “the firms on this list are ranked highly on Engineering News-Record’s (ENR) list of The Top 400 Contractors. They are also featured in industry magazines such as Building Design + Construction and Business Times, as well as in other popular magazines such as Forbes and Architectural Record. In addition, these firms have received numerous awards, including Excellence in Construction Awards and Safety Awards.”
