“We understand the balance it take to build to the intent of SCIF guidelines and requirements without overbuilding. Other partners in the SCIF construction world spare no expense to maximize margins. These companies often turn to CUSI Construction to do the actual facility build while collecting 30% or more gross margin. Our team of expert project managers and skilled tradesmen eliminate this margin stacking while providing the same assurance of accreditation.”
