I have worked with WCS Construction Company for the past ten years on multi- family housing projects in the Washington DC Metro area and have found them to be reliable, honest, and knowledgeable of both high- and low-rise structures. During the Pre-Construction process they provide valuable cost estimating along with real time subcontractor information which contributes to our overall design of the project. During the Construction phase they have always been professional, fair, and reasonable, making it easy to promote a team approach. As an Owner, we value this type of relationship with the general Contractor, and we look forward to our next project with the WCS team.
