Parkway Construction Services

Parkway Construction Services is a St. Louis-based plumbing and piping contracting firm specializing in virtual design, construction, and service within the plumbing industry. With offices in St. Louis, MO as well as Nashville, TN we serve the entire Midwest region. Founded in 1994, Parkway Construction Services has been an industry leader in technology and best practice design and construction processes.

Since our inception in 1994 Parkway Construction Services has been an integral part of a varied array of project types.  Our history of successful projects includes; industrial, commercial, residential, hi-rise, health care, research and development, pharmaceuticals, retail, cultural, sports facilities, entertainment, manufacturing, education, and manufacturing projects.

 

Parkway Construction Services has been a leader in the design and construction delivery method for over 25 years as well as the plan/spec hard bid method.  We are privileged to have the ability to provide a turn-key solution for our clients no matter the project type or size. 

Safety is not a matter of policy and compliance, it is a core value at Parkway Construction Services.  Our results speak for themselves.

By The Numbers:

  • Current EMR – .77/ Lowest possible EMR possible for our company size/type
  • Current DART – 0.00
  • Recordable Rate – 0.00
  • Number of recordable injuries within the most recent 10 year period – 0
  • Be assured that Parkway Construction Services’ safety policies and actions meet or exceed your project parameters.

Since 1994 Parkway has never failed to complete a project on schedule.  We have the experience and resources to assist our clients with a project’s schedule and to modify prefabrication and manpower alignment to address changes.  Prefabrication is an integral component of schedule compliance in today’s evolving construction environment, which we utilize on every project.  A key differentiator for us is the use of the virtual design on every project, even when we are not responsible for the design.  This allows us to schedule and prefabricates products far ahead of schedule. 

Parkway Construction Services enjoys a low seven-figure line of credit which is currently unused.  We maintain a zero debt standard for inventory, equipment, and facility tooling. We have a low eight-figure bonding capacity.  Our credit rating with our vendors is second to none. 

With hundreds of collective years of experience to bring to bear Parkway Construction Services excels at coming up with unique and innovative solutions for our clients.  Often we are brought in early in the design process which allows us to meet with the end-user to determine if an innovative solution solves a problem or simply betters their experience at a lower cost.  One example is prefabrication opportunities.  Rather than looking at every project as an extension of past experience, we look for opportunities to build multi-trade assemblies that both decrease on-site manhours and increase project quality.  We were the first contractor in our area to heavily use grooved stainless steel piping for potable water systems on the majority of our projects.  We continue to look at every challenge as an opportunity to bring a unique perspective and solution to the table.  

Owners and construction managers no longer have to choose between utilizing a consulting engineer and engaging with a design-build plumbing contractor.  The Design-Assist role is one that we are very experienced with.  We work closely with the design team and consulting engineer to review plans and collaborate with the entire delivery team and propose changes to streamline project delivery, enhance system performance, maximize prefabability, and reduce overall costs.  Key elements of the Design-Assist role are:

  • Design-phase value engineering
  • Schedule development in parallel with the design
  • More precise cost and pierce estimating
  • Streamline scheduling, permitting, and procurement.  Often we can start construction months earlier than a standard plan-spec method provides.
  • Identify trade-delivery conflicts

The Virtual Construction Department’s technological capabilities and modeling/estimating services are developed and performed in-house by trained and dedicated Parkway Construction Services professionals. Our integrated approach allows us to identify coordination/construction issues early in the process, therefore eliminating constructability challenges that arise during installation. PCS maintains a unique suite of Virtual/3D/BIM technologies that provide the highest value during all design and construction phases and allow the maximum amount of prefabrication opportunities on every project.

Our heavy use of Virtual Design provides the opportunity to fabricate the maximum amount of deliverables within our shops in a controlled environment.  Manpower shortages are no longer something to look for, they are here.  It is critical to efficiently use all available resources to prefabricate products which lowers the on-site manpower requirements and timeline.  In addition, prefabrication ultimately provides better quality by using consistent practices in a coordinated effort by our team.  

Clients and facility operators that demand the highest quality plumbing systems consistently look to Parkway Construction Services for their needs.  Our QA/QC systems and procedures mirror and are integrated with our client’s procedures and requirements.  Pfizer, Monsanto, Amazon, Nesher Biopharma, Benson Hill Laboratories, Washington University, BJC, Mercy, and many other owners continue to trust Parkway Construction Services for their important and unique needs.

We’re grateful to work with incredible clients.
