A large portion of Mashburn’s work is performed using a collaborative delivery method such as Design-Build. This collaboration facilitates a team dynamic where everyone is working toward the common goal of project success. Throughout this process, we ensure subcontractor and owner involvement, careful and thorough project documents, and team cooperation to control costs.


Since 1976, Mashburn has been providing successful General Contracting to our clients. Our construction professionals have extensive experience in overseeing projects, managing sub consultants and communicating information to all involved parties throughout the course of the project. We stay active in the bid market to constantly find new subcontractor relationships and methods for passing along savings to our clients.


Mashburn performs nearly 90% of our annual volume through construction management services, most performed for repeat clients. This success begins with a team-based construction management approach that calls for the earliest possible collaboration with the client and design team to envision the project together, define its goals and establish a customized project plan. In our role as construction manager, Mashburn professionals draw on a foundation of expertise, leadership and partnership to organize and lead the team to a successful outcome and to complete client satisfaction.
