We Have the Answers
To Your Questions!
  • How long has Halfacre been in business?

    Halfacre has been incorporated since 1970 and has solid footing in the marketplace as a General Contractor.

  • Does Halfacre work with Non-profit groups?

    Yes. Halfacre takes great pride in being an integral part of our community. Our policy is to not charge for pre-construction work in a design build environment. We can assist with your initial design, value engineer, help you determine your cost of construction and help select all your engineering and architectural services.

  • Does Halfacre do small projects?

    Yes, Halfacre will do small projects with the same commitment as large projects. Call us to let us know what you are looking for and how we can help you.

  • What markets and what type of buildings do you build?

    We operate in many market segments constructing multiple types of buildings. As a well established GC, we are capable of building retail, office, industrial, cold storage, churches, and build out. We offer a variety of building types including CMU, concrete tiltwall, conventional steel construction, pre-fabricated steel buildings and insulated concrete form construction.

  • Do you have any LEED certified staff?

    Yes. Halfacre has LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified personnel available to assist in the process of understanding what can be incorporated into your project to become aligned with U.S. Green Building Council environmentally sensitive construction practices.

  • Do you accept any subcontractors?

    Halfacre has always invited qualified new contractors to bid on work. Go to our subcontractor section, download the forms and send them back to our office for review. You must have workman’s compensation insurance to qualify.

  • Can we get plans to quote from?

    We have a FTP site that most drawings can be viewed from. Call our office for a password to view them.

  • Does Halfacre design/build work?

    Halfacre can work under many delivery systems. We prefer the design/build approach because in our view, it is the best way to provide exactly what the customer wants most cost effectively. Value engineering is best accomplished in the concept and design process so we can incorporate the right systems for the project. It is imperative to consider life cycle costs as part of any evaluation.

  • Does Halfacre build and lease back?

    We currently maintain about 300,000 square feet of office, retail and industrial properties. Halfacre will be happy to assist you with your property space requirements.
