Ulliman Schutte's decades of direct boots-on-the-ground experience continues to fuel our success. Our superintendents, foremen, and craftspeople are experts in this unique type of construction. This expertise leads to creative problem-solving, which we apply to technical issues, phasing challenges, and scheduling optimization. This self-performance-driven creativity also applies to material procurement – our preconstruction staff have a comprehensive understanding of the material options available, the true-market costs, and the associated supply-chain considerations – critical factors in today's volatile market.
Ulliman Schutte's longstanding success as a General Contractor within our highly competitive market segment is primarily a result of two company resources: the best people and the best systems. From initial estimating and scheduling through commissioning and warranty, our construction professionals are dedicated to completing each task efficiently and safely. These goals are accomplished with the aid of our highly effective estimating and management systems. Ulliman Schutte's internally-developed systems have been built from the ground-up to address the unique demands and challenges of water infrastructure construction.
Our ability to efficiently perform critical aspects of our work with our own crews and equipment affords US the highest level of project control. On a typical design-bid-build project, Ulliman Schutte performs sitework, earthwork, concrete, piping and mechanical work, pump and process equipment installation, and full project commissioning. Our crews also directly complete the critically important work associated with maintaining process and flow during construction, including temporary bypasses and tie-ins.
