The Copestone Concept

Not so many years ago it was believed that the client must choose between receiving high quality or meeting the budget or getting the project completed on time. The combination of all three of these key elements has been a way of business for Copestone General Contractors since its inception in 1985. Copestone continues to be a pioneer in setting the standard and putting the client first.

Our consistently high quality is ensured by detailed and accurate submittal logs beginning at your projects start and monitored by our project managers daily, as well as by furnishing the proper craftsmen to complete the task.

Our cost-controlled ability is outstanding due to a custom computerized estimating and job cost system. Depth of knowledge of market conditions is evidenced by our track record of consistently being in the top 15% of competitive bids. Two additional reasons for Copestone’s ability to furnish the best value for the dollar are high ethics and financial stability.

Our computerized construction schedules, weekly site meetings, and site fully supervised by A classification superintendents are just a few of the reasons we meet our completion dates and exceed our client’s expectations.

Copestone gives you the value of optimum quality, cost and timing as a result of our systems and procedures, but primarily it is the attitude with which we conduct business. We care about you and your project…and it shows.
