"Henley is one of few General Contractors remaining that own and maintain equipment with which they self-perform several key scopes of work: this ensures the project stays on track and often ahead of schedule. At Henley Construction they do the right thing through every step of a project with all of those involved and is always a preferred General Contractor for Shapiro & Duncan."
