Our core values

“We do it right the first time, on time, every time.”

Time is an asset that is critical to the success of your project and as a result, our company. The time value of money is not lost on us.

“We overcommunicate with each other and with our customers.”

The civil engineering and heavy construction fields are dynamic in that weather, inspecting agencies and stakeholders can affect time and budget.  We believe that being transparent throughout the process separates us from our competitors.

We have developed a proprietary tool called SK Connect to keep our promises of accountability and transparency with our clients.

“We take care of our SK Nelson family so we can recruit and maintain the best staff possible.”

SK Nelson believes strongly in providing a culture of stability and innovation with just the right mix of professionalism and fun.  Our motto is simply “do what you say you will do” provides a clear expectation for every member of our team.  Combined with world class benefits and intentional interactions, we believe that our team is the very best in the professional services industy.

“From the very first meeting I had with Shawn Nelson I felt that he had all the qualities that I look for in a contractor. After working with him on The Summit at Cypress Mill, the compliments I received from my property owners were overwhelming. He completed all of the construction in record time which made us look like heroes in the eyes of our property owners. He builds the best roads and always persists on quality. He is the ONLY contractor I will be using to build all of my communities.”

-Davy Roberts, President of Lone Star Land Partners 

“SK Nelson is a truly professional group to work with. They have been very helpful on numerous projects by performing design, engineering, survey, utility, and earthwork services. Nelson is definitely a one-stop shop and very responsive in meeting our needs on a tight timeline when necessary. I have greatly enjoyed my association with the entire group, and look forward to working with them again in the very near future.”

-Sarah Andrews, CSI CDT, LEED AP BD+C, GGP at F&H Construction
