WE LOOK AT THE BIG PICTURE TO ANTICIPATE ISSUES BEFORE THEY HAPPEN.

Before every project, we look at ALL details both big and small and use our experience to solve issues before they happen. This ensures a successful project that is completed safely, on time and on budget.

INTEGRITY

What we say is what we do.

Our company's philosophy is based on earning the trust of our clients. We deliver on our promises and adhere to the highest ethical standards.

Real numbers, real results.

We KNOW our costs. We do our due diligence by looking at the details, anticipating the unknowns, and communicating real numbers - whether it means losing a job or not.

Honesty, it’s how we communicate.

Honesty is not just a policy, it is a commitment we live by. No hiding or sweeping under the rug, we surround ourselves with honest people and are always transparent.

CLIENT'S FIRST. ALWAYS.

Building trust with our customers is the foundation of our business. By listening, communicating, and problem solving, we go the extra mile to make our clients happy and support them every step of the way.

COLLABORATION IS AT THE CENTER OF WHAT WE DO.

Teamwork and the knowledge gained by learning from each other creates a winning environment. We recognize the value of each employee and what they bring to the table. Our focus on collaboration enhances productivity, accountability, and creativity - which leads to maximum performance.

WE CARE FOR OUR COMMUNITY.

It is simple - we care for our community and are passionate about giving back. By serving and connecting with our local community, we aim to make an impact that goes farther than just the job site.

SAFETY

SAFETY IS NO ACCIDENT.

Safety is not an option, it is a decision we make every day. Employees are our greatest asset, which is why we encourage a culture of safety. If it’s not safe - we don’t do it.

THINK SMART BEFORE YOU START.

We plan, analyze, and provide training to ensure safety not only to our employees, but to all team members. We value the health and wellness of our employees and do whatever it takes to maintain a safe work environment.

Work ethic was never a problem, as a college dropout I began by working hard in the trades first as a journeyman auto body mechanic and then the airline industry in customer service and operations. Eventually, I fulfilled my childhood dream by becoming a commercial airline pilot over the next decade. From there I worked as Director of Development/Construction for a major senior housing company. In 2006 I pursued my goal of starting my own business and became the president of Shearer Construction. 

Since that day where college did not seem important, I have not stopped learning, working hard, and striving to be better. Family, faith, community, and giving back is the reason why we do what we do. I am honored and humbled to be the leader of Shearer Construction, a company that teaches me every day what really is important, a company of unwavering values.
