When hiring a commercial construction contractor, are there any advantages to “buying local?”
Leitner Construction thinks that “buying local” provides significant benefits to the local economy.  When you hire Leitner, we purchase our construction materials from local vendors. We rent or purchase equipment from local rental companies. We hire subcontractors from Rock Hill. Every Leitner Construction employee lives in York or Chester County, so these municipalities receive our corporate and personal tax dollars. Money is deposited into local banks. And dollars are spent one retail, dining and services throughout our community.

If you have further questions about the advantages of buying locally, please visit our Contact page.

Does Leitner Construction utilize environmentally friendly, or “green” construction practices?
Leitner Construction is dedicated to a cleaner environment and employs practices promoted by the U.S. Green Building Council.  Leitner Construction retains a LEED consultant to assist in the development of our “Green” program.  Leitner Construction consults with Stephanie Cooper, AIA, and LEED AP of The FWA Group of Charlotte NC.

If you have further questions about Green construction, please visit our Contact page.

Does Leitner Construction take any special safety precautions on the job?
Safety is a primary concern for Leitner Construction.  We developed a comprehensive commercial construction safety program with the assistance of a retired OSHA officer.  We employ noted occupational safety consultants Safety Services of America to keep us current in safety methods and training. Leitner Construction conducts weekly toolbox safety meetings for our crews, and we require fall prevention classes for our superintendents and foremen. Additionally, our operators must earn and maintain licensing and certifications for the machinery they operate. Leitner takes safety seriously and, as a result, we have not experienced a major accident in over 60 years!

I want a commercial construction contractor who will handle all the governmental rules and regulations for me. How will Leitner Construction deal with those headaches?
Leitner Construction has decades of experience and long standing relationships with agencies like SCDHEC and SCDOT. We have worked closely with the City of City of Rock Hill Development Services for over 60 years.
Leitner Construction’s varied list of projects has brought us into contact with all types of SC Inspection Agencies to include SC Special Inspections.

My project is a high-traffic Operation Center…shipping and receiving, docks and ramps and so on. Does Leitner Construction have experience with Operation Centers?
Leitner Construction has significant experience in the construction and renovation of operation centers.  We assisted in the renovation of Rock Hill’s Coca-Cola bottling plant when it was transformed into Winthrop University’s Operations Center.  Many of our commercial construction projects have included loading dock facilities, including Sunbelt Color, LA Darling, and the Winthrop Campus Center.  Leitner Construction has also performed additions and renovations to the current Rock Hill Operations Center.

I have been hearing a lot about Construction Management at Risk, or CMaR.   What is that, and is it a service Leitner provides?
When project deadline is critical, when funding is tight, when overruns and penalties could jeopardize a project’s success, CMaR helps all parties involved get a handle on the situation.  Leitner Construction utilizes CMaR with tools like:

  • Leitner’s Critical-Path Scheduling Software
  • Cost Estimating and Life Cycle Analysis
  • Constructability Analysis and Review
  • WMBE (Women/Minority-owned) Subcontractors
  • Prequalification of Subcontractors
  • Fast Track, Bid Package Approach Technical Assistance and Advice

Leitner Construction masters the fine details of project estimating, budgeting, scheduling, permitting, purchasing and cash flow.  With this knowledge, we are often able to provide GMP, or Guaranteed Maximum Price, to our clients.  Leitner Construction’s CMaR team offers our clients over 80 years of combined commercial construction experience!
