About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide the highest level of professional construction services to our clients; a safe, profitable, and enjoyable work environment for the Momentum team; and to become the benchmark by which other companies are judged. 

 

Happy Clients = Future Work

Momentum Construction Services, LLC Core Beliefs: 

Long-Term Relationships

We believe in building long term business relationships as an integral part of the construction process. 

High Quality Construction

We understand that high-quality construction with adherence to budgetary requirements means working diligently to provide the best possible job within established guidelines 

Team Work

We know that working as a team, troubleshooting before the fact, and keeping the client informed are actions which help guarantee satisfaction by all parties. 

What sets us apart:

We have listened to our Clients express frustration that quality General Contractors are not willing to bid on small work.  To ensure that our clients receive the service they need, we have set up a Special Projects Division focused on smaller projects. This is an aggressive team of seasoned construction professionals able to perform small jobs economically for our Clients and profitably for Momentum.

The Momentum Advantage:

Our team self performs light grading, concrete, steel erection, welding, carpentry, sheetrock and metal studs, painting and finishes. The fact that we do not have to rely on subcontractors for this work gives us better control over cost, schedule, and quality.
