A partner in your project’s success

We have the experts to help you deliver your project.

Calculated collaboration since 1990

Connico offers consulting services that assist owners, architects, engineers, and planners with cost estimating, scheduling/phasing, and program and project management. The late Connie S. Gowder founded the company in 1990 and grew it into a leading national construction consultancy known for its extraordinary team and commitment to superior client service. The Connico team continues to build on Connie’s enduring legacy and acts as trusted advisors by clients and partners as they transform airports, roadways, and communities across the country.

Our Core Values
