About Us


For any stage of construction WayneWright Construction is at your service. We offer efficient and innovative Design, Construction, and Engineering. Our team has over 20 combined years of complex project management and experience in all fields of construction. Our customer service focus makes your project easy on you while saving you money.

Most contractors provide bids that typically grow in cost by greater than 50% and take twice as long as estimated. This is because of poor project management skills and almost no intent to meet their so-called fixed price estimates. This practice has become commonplace with renovations and additions. These contractors build in huge margins to cover unexpected costs due to unexpected circumstances throughout construction. It is a gamble that always adversely impacts the homeowner. If the contractor does not run into issues, they are paid out on their huge margins and the customer loses. If the contractor does run into issues, the modifications eat into their margins and typically they lose focus on the project since it becomes less of a moneymaker. Service is impacted adversely and often they will still try to negotiate a price increase since their original ‘fixed price’ bid will be so vague.

Why take that risk? Engage WayneWright and enter into a win-win situation in which the contractor works for the client on a construction management basis. This is a new trend that is working out extremely positively for both contractor and homeowner. The contractor provides a detailed cost and time estimate for work, manages the construction project for a cost plus fee price, and is completely transparent with their actual costs and their profit.

WayneWright Construction has adopted and implemented this philosophy with great success. In this situation, the customer is not left guessing how much we make on the project and how much of their costs translate directly into material and labor. Monthly-itemized bills are provided to the client and each cost is specifically detailed as is our profit and overhead. It is in our best interest to meet our timing and budget in order to keep our customers as referrals and grow business. Therefore, our goals and the customer’s goals are aligned.

WayneWright Construction provides end-to-end service with its Design, Construction, and Engineering Services. Principals, Wayne Schepens and Josh Nicodemus have focused on caring for the customer through quality deliverables.
