Daily Inspiration: Meet Scogg Construction

Today we’d like to introduce you to Scogg Construction. Them and their team share their story with us below:

The Scogg family has a creative passion for building. In 2016, Drew Scogg planted the idea of starting a family construction business. Andy Scogg, a public educator and licensed contractor spent his summers building new homes and remodeling in West Michigan for over 25 years. Austin Scogg, a recent college graduate with a degree in graphic design is eager to create the ideal space for your remodeling adventure. Drew, a recent college graduate with a business degree working in Los Angeles, CA decided to move back to West Michigan to turn his idea into a reality. In 2017, Scogg Construction LLC was established. We stand on our core values; Faith, Family, Relationships, and Quality Craftsmanship. We began with a three-man crew remodeling smaller residential projects. Through the several trials and tribulations of a being a new business, we quickly built key relationships within several Grand Rapids communities with subcontractors and vendors that share our same values and goals. Continually growing through great referrals from our clients and endless night’s meeting and discussing our vision and goals. We quickly started to expand and made several meaningful impacts in the lives of our client’s homes. Through all of this and especially our clients, we’ve grown into commercial remodels, real-estate investments, and the ability to give back to the communities we work in. 

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
This is a question we get often as individuals and we can ensure you that running any type of business is no easy feat and will always have its hurdles no matter what stage you’re in. Let’s be honest, we struggled with a lot of different aspects of running a business in the beginning. Family being one of them, how do we navigate difficult conversations with each other while keeping it professional and when do we shut of business mode and turn on family mode. Fortunately, through honest dialogue and open communication, we were able to settle into what works for us as a family business. The ins and outs of business law, plans, and even documents did not come as second nature in the beginning. Meeting and building relationships with other professionals not only grew our knowledge of business but helped us reach a more fluid process. Just like clients lean on us to professionally remodel their home, we realized early on that we too need to lean on other professionals to help us flourish. 

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
We are a unique construction company in the fact that we are a full-service contractor, meaning we do all of the work from start to finish besides for the other license trades and our subcontractors are all locally own businesses. We believe that our quality and how we conduct business are the two capstones to running a successful construction company. We build great customer relationships beginning with our consultations, estimations, and contract signing and continuing that into the construction phase; always staying on a job until its completion and our clients are satisfied. We do it all when it comes to construction, however, through the years we have established ourselves as key contractors in the greater Grand Rapids area when it comes to kitchens, bathrooms, basements, Trex decks, and additions. We have been blessed to bring our clients’ dreams to fruition, but one project stands out from them all. An ex-swimmer wanted an addition, we expanded their home and installed an indoor infinity pool, hot tub, and sauna which had access from their master bathroom. behind their indoor pool room, we added an office/movie room and increased their master closet space as well. This was a blast to build and is our most unique and challenging project to date. 

Before we go, is there anything else you can share with us?
The people in our surrounding communities have blessed us with work, so we not only feel a drive but an obligation to giving back to those communities who have helped us. We have given back by volunteering at John Ball Zoo, and habitat for humanity where we helped build a home for a family in need within our community. We look forward to continuing our volunteerism and are always discussing opportunities to give back. We are extremely committed to ensuring our carbon footprint is as minimal as possible. We try to use recycled products when we can, donate building materials to Habitat for Humanity, and recycle our waste from projects.
