At Galbraith, we pride ourselves on our customer service. Too often, commercial contractors or designers will take a cookie-cutter approach to their projects and use cheap materials or outsource work to unqualified subcontractors. We believe that every project should be tailored to the owner’s goals and specifications without cutting corners. Our wide breadth of project experience and specialty expertise lets us assist our clients in the York area with land acquisition and site development, planning and design, tax abatement and financing and adhering to regulatory guidelines and local stipulations, all while finishing our projects on time and on budget. Our team of experts focuses on preventative problem solving and proactively managing projects so we minimize potential issues, project change orders, and unforeseen costs.

Most of the issues that would cause a project to go over budget can be eliminated before the project even starts if you know what to look for. This is especially true for projects in industries with lots of regulation, like healthcare facilities and food processing plants. For this reason, it is critical to hire a firm that has experience in these industries, has built a team of qualified subcontractors and knows the permitting process like the back of their hand. We are very familiar with local regulations having completed projects in eight different states in the area.

Most all of the work we do for our clients is completed in occupied commercial and industrial buildings or public environments. Because of this, complying with every single safety standard throughout the project is an essential piece in our building process. In addition to this, we also use daily and weekly checklists. These checklists help our professionals ensure that every job site is cleaned appropriately and is hazard-free. This is just another way we provide our clients with complete satisfaction.
