We attribute much of our Construction Management success to an uncompromised focus on project planning. Throughout the life of every project, we constantly plan for the big picture and the details necessary to properly manage the construction project. Once the project is under construction, the project schedule, budget, and quality are firmly under our control. This allows us to deliver predictable and desirable outcomes.

With a reputation for quality, affordability, and customer satisfaction, our talented construction team consistently delivers on time and under budget. From conceptual budgeting and design coordination to project planning and construction oversight, we provide owners and investors with opportunities for savings and profit in the construction process while maintaining the highest standards.


With our design-build delivery system, A. Pickett Construction, Inc., handles your entire construction project, streamlining the demanding construction process. With a design-build contract, the design and construction aspects are carried out by a single entity.
