MISSION – East Harding Construction sets itself apart by focusing on exceptional customer service. We know that if we deliver a positive experience to you, built upon a relationship of listening first, mutual respect and personal accountability, that a high-performance project built to your exact specifications will be the result. Exceptional customer service is where we make the difference that matters most to our clients.
VALUE – How do we deliver exceptional customer service? Simple. Our delivery model assigns one highly-qualified East Harding Estimator/Project Manager to be your single point-of-contact from start to finish. We call this “The Power of One.” Other companies have multiple departments with different people handling very specific tasks in the Preconstruction and Construction process. They manage your relationship like your project is moving down an assembly line. You still get your project built, but who built it? And how much more did you pay for those layers of overhead in each of those departments? At East Harding, “The Power of One” matches you with one Estimator/Project Manager focused solely on your customer experience. This one person — your “single source of accountability” — is supported by a very capable team from preconstruction services through close-out, so redundancy is in place, but we have learned that a single point-of-contact serves our clients better. With East Harding Construction, you will benefit from personal accountability, full transparency, quality control, no loss of information, less overhead costs and more Return On Investment.
