Sun Construction & Facility Services
is your one source for construction, maintenance and repair,
move-add-change projects, and other facility services.
Facility Care & Maintenance
Facility care and maintenance is one of our specialties. This is
where a facility manager, typically from a large campus, contracts

can protect the owner by placing a cap on construction costs while
savings are credited to the owner. This method allows for a very
open dialogue on all costs throughout the project. Subcontract and
material components are competitively bid, ensuring the
