Sean and the team members at SLL provide their clients with exceptional support in the construction process, bringing expertise to companies and organizations that often are unfamiliar with the construction process. As an architect, I find their contribution as Owner Representatives invaluable in keeping the project moving forward, and assuring the process is well managed.

Their constructability review and value engineering resulted in significant cost savings to the project, with bids less than our architect’s estimates. The complex contract negotiations were handled professionally and many potential issues were resolved to the mutual satisfaction of both parties.
