Church Builders Southeast is the realization of a vision held by Canco General Contractors and its staff to build church buildings at a reduced fee while maintaining a high level of dedication to quality, and cost effective construction. Canco General Contractors, founded in 1986, has completed more than 300 projects with over 40 of them church projects. With more than 30 award winning building projects, Canco has the experience to handle projects of any size. Canco’s strong Christian roots and ability to economically deliver quality church buildings are what inspired the formation of the Church Builders Southeast division of Canco General Contractors.
After more than 26 years we still address every project with the same commitment to client satisfaction. Many of our employees have been with the company for more than 20 years which enables our team to work efficiently, recognize potential issues before they become costly problems, and apply what we’ve learned from past experiences to make your construction project a smooth, exciting experience.
Over 90% of our clients have become multi-project clients.
We strive to provide a facility that meets the current and future needs of the church, making the best possible use of God’s funding for each project. We work closely with the church from their fund raising program to assisting them with their lending, through completion of their project. We encourage and employ in-kind donations of materials and services from church members and the community. We’ll put the generous gifts to work for the church in an effort to maximize all cost savings opportunities without sacrificing quality of the project.
Shared Savings Guarantee
We offer a Guarantee Maximum Price (GMP/Shared Savings) type of agreement on every church project. Throughout the project we are committed to our clients to save them money, without compromising quality, so the project costs less than the maximum price guarantee. At the end of the project savings are shared with the church receiving the majority of the savings to help the ministry.
Church Builders Southeast has an employee incentive program that encourages its employees to manage projects efficiently and safely without compromising quality.
