LA Real Estate Services

Commercial/Residential Construction Services

Schick Construction Inc. has over 40 years of experience as a full-service general contracting firm specializing in Commercial Tenant Improvements, Restaurants, Nightclubs, and Specialty Construction.

As a LEED AP (accredited in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), Benjamin Schick, President of Schick Construction Inc., and his team has the ability and experience to bring energy efficiency and sustainability to projects. SCI can take an existing building and, with low-cost measures, show ownership and management how they can increase efficiency and lower operating costs.

Schick Construction Inc. understands that the essential elements of the "building process" are completing a project on time, within budget, and satisfying our clients.

Meeting and exceeding these goals have been a hallmark of Schick Construction Inc since 1976

When Homeowner Associations contemplate significant construction or repairs, many turn to Schick Construction Inc. for assistance managing the project. From determining a scope of work to assisting in the bidding process and overseeing the work, Schick Construction Inc. offers expertise in making the right decisions and ensuring the HOA doesn't get burned. We have found that the Board of HOAs is typically staffed with well-meaning Homeowners who often have little or no construction experience. Schick Construction Inc. acts as an agent and intermediary between the Board of the HOA and the contractors, thus ensuring a well-run job on budget and on time. Benjamin Schick, the president of Schick Construction Inc., also serves as president of the HOA he currently lives in, taking care of projects from seismic retrofitting to re-roofing the 68-unit complex.

Keeping up with and using the latest innovations in construction is a constant learning curve. Schick Construction Inc. is constantly researching and utilizing the latest construction techniques and technologies, from specialized coatings that clean the air and prevent mold to the self-cleaning window glass.
