Shell Construction: Answering the Call to Tilt-Wall

In Industrial by Gordon Highlander

Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

Quality and service drive every aspect of our business. Since 2007, we’ve completed thousands of construction projects for high-profile clients. Whether a project is small or large, simple or complex, our clients know they can expect a well-managed project from a team of knowledgeable and experienced construction experts.

As the industry has continued to evolve, our CEO, Greg Gordon, has answered the call to expand our offerings to multiple cities and include shell construction.

Why Tilt-Wall Construction

Our journey into tilt-wall construction began when an existing client asked our team to build a complete built-to-suit project for them, starting with the shell.

We strive to create efficient, cost-effective construction and design solutions for every client. Our goal is to build lasting business relationships with our clients and earn their trust and respect for our quality of work and service. We wanted to be able to deliver for our clients and provide the services they needed. We are pleased to say that our repeat clients generate over eighty percent of our ongoing construction business today. That’s how we decided to get involved in tilt-wall construction.

Launching Our Shell Division

Over time, Greg Gordon and Nick Campbell have worked together on various projects even when Gordon Highlander didn’t do shell construction. When the Gordon Highlander team decided to expand their offerings, Greg knew he wanted Nick to run the Shell Division.

Nick’s experience on the owner’s side of the business and Greg’s expertise in the finish-out offering create a unique and effective team focused entirely on the client. He understands what owners are looking for from a partner and knows how to deliver that.

Track Record of Trust

Our team works hard to balance unique solutions while not reinventing the wheel each time we take on a new project. While each project is different, we have a great deal of expertise from past projects that we draw experience. It can be easy to over-engineer a project or finish planning and realize it’s significantly over budget, but we know how to get the scope right for a client in project size and cost. We use our experience to help clients with their needs, creating a smoother process for them from the planning process to the last detail. Our expertise allows us to be accurate and efficient.


This process is made possible by our team of partners. The building process is highly collaborative, so we select subcontractors that our clients can trust. We believe this is the secret ingredient to any successful project. We not only want trust between our partners but also with our clients. Our team strives to create a personalized experience for our clients to ensure that the end product meets their needs.

Building Long-Term Relationships

Our journey has become more collaborative and personalized over the years, making the process more enjoyable for all parties involved. Ultimately, it is gratifying for us because we love to see our clients succeed in their work and know that we had a part in their journey.
