Winchester, VA Commercial ContractorWith more than 40 years of experience, Galbraith/Pre-Design Inc. is a full-service general contractor specializing in commercial, industrial, and institutional construction. Although we are able to work on almost any type of commercial design/build project, we focus on the following project categories:

Galbraith provides a variety of commercial design and build services to clients in the Winchester, Virginia area. Located at the top of Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, Winchester is an Independent City in the northwestern portion of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Winchester boasts 270 acres of beautiful parkland, unique architecture and mountain views, with all the conveniences of a big city. It has a population of approximately 26,000 residents and it is the oldest Virginia city west of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Old Town Winchester, a vital marketplace for more than 250 years, is located in the heart of a 45-block National Register Historic District.  It features a quaint pedestrian walking mall bursting with outdoor cafes, specialty retail shops, historic attractions, and family-oriented activities. A visit to Old Town Winchester wouldn’t be complete without a stop at one of the museums located in the historic district, like the Stonewall Jackson’s Headquarters Museum. This Virginia and National Historic Landmark was used as headquarters by General Thomas Jonathan “Stonewall” Jackson during the winter of 1861-1862. In addition, you can visit George Washington’s Office Museum, the Old Courthouse Civil War Museum, and the Shenandoah Valley Discovery Museum, all located within a comfortable walking distance of each other.

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 Winchester 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.

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.
