Stone Creek Engineering, Inc. (formerly Stone Creek Estimating) was founded in 2011 by Jeff Threet, MS, PE, LEED AP, CPE with a vision of bringing Construction Controls out of its traditional archaic role and into the 21st century by utilizing the latest technologies, working with forward thinking project teams, and collaborating with innovative owners. All of these are delivered through a belief in cooperation, respect, and integrity and with the understanding that every team member has the potential to add value to the project.
From 2011 to 2017, SCEI primarily focused on Construction Management and Cost Estimating. In late 2018, we expanded our services to include Scheduling and Constructability Reviews. SCEI is now a full service construction Project Controls service provider for commercial construction projects.
We currently serve the California construction market with projects throughout the state.
Stone Creek Engineering, Inc. is a California registered Small Business, Micro Business, and DVBE firm. (CA Certification No. 2000989)
Why we exist
In everything we do, we believe in working to improve the quality of life of our team and our partners. In our vocation, we pursue this ideal through leadership, analytics, and hard work.
How we got our start
After working on several challenging projects early in his career, Jeff Threet thought that there must be a better way to build a project from all sides: the owner’s side, the designer’s side, and the builder’s side; collectively termed the Owner/Architect/Contractor (OAC).
The question was this: We have the technology, we have the desire, we have the resources, yet on all sides we continue to experience great pain during construction; why?
He resolved to find that when effective leadership and robust analytics are paired with some good-old-fashioned hard work, it removed the instability and negative emotional energy from the team when challenges arose. He found that if these attributes were executed consistently they would significantly reduce the strain on all OAC personnel. Much like an undisciplined child struggles with anxiety; project teams with inconsistent analytics struggle with conflict. Analytics are the guard rails of the project, they provide the boundaries to keep the team safe and the project on track. When consistent analytics are implemented through effective leadership, the entire OAC team can settle into a predictable routine. The result is improved trust among the team and ultimately an improved quality of life for all members and their families.
