S hopping C enters By Bill Stevenson, Target Building Construction Target Building Construction: Knowledge and enthusiasm determine success


rom humble begin- nings in 1990, Target Building Construction

years in business helped prepare us for where we are today. Our current projects are more concentrated in the healthcare, commercial and higher education markets due to the changing environ- ment in retail and super- market construction. Wal- Mart and Amazon are two companies determining how consumers shop online and spend their money. Technol- ogy is ruling the roost and brick and mortar retail is suffering the consequences. On any given morning at all of our jobsites usually

around 6:30 AM, the final sips of coffee are tasted and work begins. Lasers are running, slabs being poured, walls are going up and utilities are installed. Having worked in the field in my 20s and 30s it’s easy to appreciate the expertise of our field staff as I walk through each and every jobsite. When you have Target boots on the ground you can be confident we will lead everyone through a suc- cessful project completion. Our superintendents and carpenters deliver skillsets of experienced supervision,

quality craftsmanship, jobsite etiquette and a safe working environment for all involved. Our field and project manage- ment staffs go through exten- sive planning along with our subcontractors to ultimately determine the success of our projects. The project manage- ment staff at Target brings their knowledge and dedica- tion to each job we work on. All of this ties into how much we value our relationships with our company, our clients and our partners. Working in conjunction with our subcon- tracting base has enabled us

to build numerous projects, therefore developing strong bonds with them as well. They say in life there are six degrees of separation, but in the construction industry there are only two degrees of separation. Everybody knows each other, which is one of the aspects that make it interesting. The real time changes in the current needs of the construction market have been good for our company because we have adapted with experienced staff to meet the challenges. Target is in the process of building significant projects right now in PA, NJ and DE. In Milford, DE for example we are building a 81,000 s/f Medical Office Building for Bayhealth with Anchor Health Properties. In NJ we are working with Capi- tal Health in Hopewell, NJ on the Advanced Surgical Center, Princeton Univer- sity E-Quad Lab, TJU/Ken- nedy ENT project, Virtua, Tatum Brown project and Bostic Manufacturing in Paulsboro, NJ. PA projects for the Children’s Hospi- tal of Philadelphia, Magee Rehabilitation, University of Pennsylvania, Temple University, Swarthmore College, Esperanza Health and Philabundance. Thankful for where we have been and enthusiastic about where we we’re going. Every Target employee is an ambassador for our compa- ny. Target has a connection between all five our depart- ments: Estimating, Project Management, Field Person- nel, Accounting and Mar- keting where long tenured employees who understand each other work in harmony. The Procore project man- agement software we now utilize connects Target to all clients and design teams with job progress, schedule adherence, correspondence, billing, photos and accurate updates, keeping everyone on the same page. Please let us share our knowledge and enthusiasm with you. We will continue to build relationships through the power of people.
