Facing Today’s Challenges to Build a Better Future

If you believe in teamwork, as we do, then you probably also subscribe to the notion that planning ahead makes a lot of sense, particularly in uncertain times.

No one can deny that the challenges of the past year have been unprecedented, on both a personal and professional level. But, as we emerge from the challenges brought about by the global pandemic, we look forward to a future that offers not only new solutions, but unequalled opportunity for growth and problem-solving.

Today, at DWC Construction, we believe it’s imperative to get moving in the right direction as soon as possible; to lock in specifications, order materials and form partnerships as quickly as possible.

But, first and foremost, DWC Construction is committed to meeting challenges, minimizing wasted effort and exceeding expectations. It’s a philosophy of sharing, and it is, quite simply, the way we have styled our business.

Why Design-Build Works

Today, we all want to embrace the familiar. But, we all know that returning to a future “normal” does not mean looking backward. Building and finish-out costs continue to rise, and the reality of tomorrow’s workplace may be very different from what we once knew.

The construction industry, in particular, has been besieged by cost increases, labor shortages, scarcity of materials and delivery delays. Not only did lumber prices increase 375% from April 2020 through April 2021, but the cost of rebar, plastic construction materials, glass and even insulation has risen enough over the past year to make a difference in overall price even for smaller projects. In addition, timing delays and scheduling uncertainties add to those costs, so it’s not only the actual dollars that should be tallied, but the effect on the timeline as well.

As a general contractor in the Nashville area since 1947, DWC knows a lot about construction, from tenant buildout projects to interior finish-outs, from scheduling to budgeting, from construction services to team management. We know how to stick to a time schedule and we have learned how to make things happen!

Now is the time to plan for that workplace revamp that you’ve been putting off — an updated interior that will encourage your employees to return happily to the office, a bright new restaurant decor that reflects a new spirit of optimism, or a revitalized commercial interior that embraces new health and safety protocols.

By working together, we believe we can all move forward with greater confidence.

We Build Great Places to Work

If you’re an architect or commercial broker working with a tenant buildout client, DWC will partner with you to present a variety of options. Our distinctive approach relies on collaborative effort, and we bring years of talented team experience to every project. As a full-service construction company specializing in the planning and installation of functional interior spaces, we will assist you to plan the best ways to complete a successful buildout or renovation.

Experience the DWC difference across every aspect of the project. In addition to our long history, our team is committed to a hands-on, detail-oriented approach that leaves nothing to chance. Pre-construction planning is every bit as important as onsite supervision, and we do both consistently and well. In addition, we coordinate subcontractor schedules and constantly monitor safety, quality and performance in an effort to always exceed expectations. It’s the DWC way.

In short, we strive to make it easier for you, so that you, in turn, can concentrate on streamlining your business and satisfying your clients.

We know that you are committed to providing comprehensive service to your clients, and we understand your commitment to excellence. We know that you anticipate new growth and stability in the months and years ahead, just as we do. If you’d like to learn more about how we can achieve great things together, we invite you to browse our portfolio, or to schedule a consultation to discuss the opportunities that lie ahead. Here at DWC we anticipate building upon our long-standing history of service and achievement in the coming year and beyond. We also look forward to exploring the wealth of options available to us all for innovation and future success. We are excited about moving in new directions.

We’re always interested in cultivating new relationships. Shall we go forward together?
