And now, a little more about Shaun and SCL Enterprises, in his own words.

How would you describe your company’s primary work and scope?
SCL is a general contractor that specializes in custom construction. We are 100% referral based and take on projects of most any size, excluding only the very small and extremely large. Examples of past projects include high-end custom homes, commercial office/medical buildings, custom commercial end-user structures, multi-family apartments/townhomes, and car dealerships, to name a few.

How long have you been with your company?
I started the company 20 years ago.

What do you like best about your industry?
I enjoy being able to use both my creativity and hands to take projects from nothing to something that my team and I can be proud of, making lasting relationships along the way.

What motivated you to join NAIOP?
We were motivated to join after one of our projects was nominated for Night of the Stars’ Retail Development of the Year. I hope to create additional quality contacts to further our business.

What do you do for relaxation/recreation?
I enjoy skiing, snowboarding, wake-surfing, and visiting sunshine-filled locations with family and friends. I also like golfing; although I’m not the best golfer, I enjoy the challenge and conversation.

What advice would you give to someone just starting out in your industry?
My short answer would be, if you are starting your own company or business, don’t think that because you are now an owner or boss that it equates to more free time. It’s quite the opposite and be ready for that.

What's an interesting or unusual fact that most of your fellow NAIOP colleagues probably don't know about you?
An interesting fact about our company is that as general contractor, we self-perform a lot of our work in multiple trades. We have also invested in a fair amount of iron to self-perform all of our own demolition, excavation, utility work and trucking. With that iron, we also work as a subcontractor to other generals/builders or property owners to help them with all their site work needs.
