EMC is best known and most respected as a mid-size "Concept to Completion" construction company. EMC started in Southern Illinois in 1981 as a small, locally owned construction company and in a relatively short time has become a leader in the construction industry.
To enhance the capabilities of our firm, EMC became a dealer and builder of Kirby Building Systems, which is one of the largest manufacturers of pre-engineered, steel building systems in the nation. Utilizing pre-engineered, factory fabricated components helps keep projects on schedule and within budget for our clients.
Combining competitively bid projects and negotiated commercial and industrial building projects, EMC has become one of the fastest growing construction firms in Southern Illinois and Western Kentucky.
Complete computerized estimating, job costing, accounting, and project management, along with a very satisfied customer base, have helped EMC to grow consistently in annual sales and profits.
A major contributing factor to EMC's success can be found in the staff or a constructionteam. Each team is carefully chosen to meet each client's individual project needs. EMC's staff is always courteous, professional, and experienced in the business of construction.
EMC is proud to be the only construction firm is Southern Illinois and Western Kentucky that can provide its clients with complete "Concept to Completion" services. When single source responsibility, rapid completion, and guaranteed cost are needed, EMC's construction management approach is the solution.
For commercial and industrial facilities, EMC offers the advantage of a guaranteed project cost in the preliminary design stage. EMC's single source responsibility for the entire project simplifies the communications and coordination. Use of EMC's fast track scheduling shortens the project's duration by overlapping design and construction schedules. EMC will design, build and lease commercial and industrial projects to well-established industries, government or public entities.
EMC's Construction Management approach utilizes EMC as a construction manager who acts as the customer's agent and is responsible for all phases of the building process, with exception of financial responsibility.
Unlike the traditional Bid Process approach, the owner and EMC, rather then the General Contractor, negotiate directly each construction phase with the subcontractor or supplier. Then EMC, as a construction manager, assumes overall responsibility for the coordination and completion of the project. Each and every phase of work is bid out and a subcontractor is chosen by the customer and EMC together, considering not only by the lowest bid but the subcontractor's reputation of quality workmanship and timeliness for completion as well.
It is important to note that EMC’s construction management team works as the customer’s agent and on-site coordinator.
Considerable time and money are saved as the lowest price is achieved by bidding competitively each and every phase of the construction work separately. Further saving is achieved by the customer due to EMC’s direct purchase from manufacturers and distributors.
