By advising you throughout the construction process from preliminary feasibility through design, specifications, and contractor selection, we empower you to prioritize those drivers most important to you and your project. In short, we give you the tools required to ensure a successful outcome.
SAVING TIME & MONEY
Guiding you through the process from preliminary feasibility assessment through selecting the right designer and contractor most suitable for your job, our goal is to tee up your project in such a way that the process is more enjoyable, and the outcome exceeds your expectations.
Because every project has its own unique conditions, we evaluate as soon as possible those that might pose special challenges or even threaten to derail the project.
Proper planning from the start (architect vs. draftsman, contractor selection, contract type, cost projection, etc.) gives you the best chance at an enjoyable process and successful execution.
Any large-scale project involves a great deal of documentation beyond plans and contracts. We help clients navigate these important elements, where attention to detail is paramount.
Construction Draw Review
Having an objective third party review pay applications for accuracy and fairness eases clients’ anxiety and helps ensure the project is being funded appropriately.
Upon request, we visit clients’ sites throughout the construction process to ensure all is going as should be expected.
Rarely in construction does everything go exactly as anticipated. While a good contractor and a reasonable client should be able to work through most issues that arise, sometimes a third party can play a constructive role or unearth new solutions.
What We Don’t Do
- Detailed estimating
- Construction supervision/quality control
- Forensic evaluation & expert testimony
- Try to be all things to everybody
While we strive to offer a broad array of assistance, we are mindful that we need to provide value to your overall project. Certain tasks are better left to others who are either already engaged in the process or have unique skill sets that we do not. We will always seek to make a positive contribution to the final outcome, either by assisting directly, making a referral, or simply getting out of the way.
“Building a custom home is a tremendous challenge and intimidating, to say the least. From the time we broke ground, we felt complete confidence in Tuckahoe Creek Construction to guide us through the entire process; brainstorming design ideas, troubleshooting unexpected issues and staying on top of our budget through every phase of the project. The result was a realized vision of our dream home! We are still singing their praises, three years after completion.“
Lynda and Trey Hatcher
“Tuckahoe Creek Construction has an outstanding reputation of recognizing the importance of being true and honest with all of their customers, whether it is a simple question or concern, or an extensive change to a customer’s home already in progress.“

“Tuckahoe Creek is always my first recommendation to anyone for a building project… whole house or addition.“
Mr. and Mrs. Chris Carey
Tuckahoe Creek Construction Solutions operates on a billable-hour basis, much like accountants, engineers, and attorneys. Our clients can consult with us for a single hour just to kick the tires on a project, or they can involve us extensively to look after their interests throughout the planning process. We typically don’t recommend our services for small projects, because our fee would likely be disproportionate to the value we add to the project. On larger projects, however, in addition to streamlining the process, we often identify sufficient savings to offset our fee and then some. Even without savings, our fee would typically represent less than 1% of the overall budget for a large project. At this time, we do not sell blocks of time, primarily because we want to earn our clients’ trust and business. If we cannot add sufficient value, we encourage discontinuation of our service.
