Jim Shugart began his career in the construction industry over 30 years ago in Aspen, Colorado. Starting as a finish carpenter/contractor, his outstanding management and communication skills developed into many successful years as a general contractor and consultant. He built his reputation on reliability and integrity, meticulous attention to detail, and an ability to resolve conflicts and solve problems.
Jim attributes a large portion of his success to a talent for building collaborative relationships between clients and team members. By bringing together high-performance teams, he has successfully completed a wide range of construction projects, including some in excess of $20 million. His work highlights a versatility and experience built across scores of projects including:
- Construction of custom homes in Colorado
- Construction of multiple large estate projects in Pebble Beach, California
- Restoration of Victorian homes in the Northeast
- Development and construction of commercial spaces in multiple U.S. locations
His business philosophy is strongly aligned with the Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) system. This is a practice where all disciplines in a construction project communicate and work together with the common goal of creating quality products, while staying on schedule and within budget.
Jim came to realize that there was a critical role missing in the construction industry, where clients often lack an expert whose sole focus is to protect their interests. He decided to apply his vast knowledge of all facets of construction to creating a Construction Consulting and Owner Representative firm that delivers on this mission.
In this role, he acts as a champion for clients throughout the development and building process, protecting and informing them as he leads their projects to successful completion. Whether it is permitting issues, construction challenges, or design choices, Jim offers insights and experience to help the owner through the myriad decisions that are required to keep any project running smoothly.
When he’s not working hard, Jim can be found playing hard at skiing (PSIA), biking, and hiking, or enjoying photography as a professional photographer.
