Our systems and processes reduce errors and provide real-time status updates. As a result, our clients save time and money, and stay connected to the full project life-cycle from planning to on-budget completion.


As a Construction Manager, S&P acts as a consultant to the owner during every phase of the project.

As a CM-at-Risk, we commit to delivering the project within a Guaranteed Maximum Price. During preconstruction, we work with the design team to focus on cost and schedule, as well as constructability and implications of alternative designs, systems and materials. During construction, we serve as a general contractor and aggressively manage the project throughout every phase.

As CM-Agency, we represent our clients by helping select the design and construction teams and managing the scope, ensuring that the project stays within a predetermined budget with value engineering, cost-benefit analysis and best-value comparisons.


Design-build streamlines project delivery through a single contract between the owner and the team. This simple but fundamental difference saves money and time by aligning incentives between designers and builders, fostering collaboration and teamwork. S&P has the tools, technology and processes in place to enhance the collaboration.

Our experience managing and constructing design-build projects has helped establish us as thought leaders for the industry. More important for our clients, our commitment to cultivating relationships, maintaining open lines of communication and using state-of-the-art technology help us deliver the most efficient and cost-effective design-build project every time.


S&P built its foundation on traditional General Contracting services. As builders, we run highly efficient and well-coordinated projects. Our process uses technology tools as a holistic management process leveraging the power of BIM as an integrated component, which keep client risks and costs to a minimum. It helps us get the most from both our proprietary software and our extensive construction industry experience.

The S&P system helps us manage bids, estimates, contracts and client expectations throughout each stage of a project. In short, it makes our processes more efficient and more transparent, which lets us focus our efforts on turning visions into reality.


We’re obsessed with technology, and with good reason. Our Building Information Modeling (BIM) software saves our clients time and money, and creates a transparent, collaborative process. It helps us complete projects on time and under budget, even where other contractors have tried and failed. That’s what drives our ongoing, multi-million dollar investment to enhance our proprietary version of BIM.

The benefit Satterfield & Pontikes brings is using the technology tools as a holistic management process leveraging the power of BIM as an integrated component. We use technology to refine and streamline estimating, pricing, planning, coordination, construction and building operations. S&P routinely uses BIM on projects for schedule and cost management, design conflict detection, coordinating subcontractor work and streamlining efforts to keep work on schedule. With BIM, we can also enhance quality control measures, increase productivity, streamline data sharing and provide more dynamic and informative deliverable.


Integrating multidisciplinary design inputs using a single 3‑D model allows interface issues to be identified and resolved in advance of construction, eliminating the cost and time impacts of redesign. The model also enables new and existing assets to be integrated seamlessly.


Projects can be visualized at an early stage. The project team uses BIM to ‘build’ the project in a virtual environment, rehearsing complex procedures, optimizing temporary works designs and planning procurement of materials, equipment and manpower.


Through modelling in 3-D the designer/ consultants are forced at a very early stage in the project to make key decisions which will in turn allow a more accurate cost analysis and adherence to budget/cost targets.
