I’ve never wanted to be anything else; nothing is more exciting or romantic to me than this act of creation, to look at a building and know that I had a part in bringing it into being.
My motivation for building started very early when I got a set of tools at age two. I loved them from the start. I just feel compelled to build. That motivation was taken to another level, however, by my parents and extended family. I saw them build community and build up the people around them and it transformed my understanding of what it meant to be a builder. Their example is the standard that I try to meet every day.
I saw my parents really listen whenever they engaged others and I saw the wisdom of their actions in the results that they achieved. In our business we try to listen that intently to really understand and meet the client’s needs.
Two things: that our clients really felt we put their interests first, and secondly that we as a company improved the lives of those we worked with.

Working at Sheridan Construction is like being with family. I know if a problem arises, anyone will jump in and help. I like the “can do’ atmosphere that we have.
The Macon community is the right size for my family. It’s not too large but large enough to have great shopping and entertainment. The weather is great most of the time. Macon is a friendly city and it’s easy to make new friends.
They did a great job and understood my needs from day one.
As a company that stands behind their work, has high morals and integrity and takes care of its clients, employees and project partners.

Sheridan customers can expect an experience that makes the preconstruction and construction process enjoyable. They can also expect us to set the project up for success from the start.
Keys to a successful construction project include a team approach, proactive planning, and keeping the team informed.
I measure success by how pleased our customers are. I take pride in providing service to each and every team member – customer, designer, and subcontractor.

The people. Sheridan has a team atmosphere. You can ask anyone for help and get it.
I oversee all projects and provide support to the customers and our staff. The aim is to deliver the project on time and within budget.
School-building projects — K-12 and higher education.
We offer a lifetime warranty. If something isn’t quite right, we will make it right — for life. Our employees know this and if something does not look right, they ask questions and make it right.

Being detailed, structured, and always having a plan.
Our company is so family-oriented, and I appreciate the way we always look after our clients and our employees.
