Passion. Experience. Diligence.


Landcore Builders, formerly known as Scott Wheeler Development, was founded in 1994. Our team has vast experience in all aspects of construction and land development. Years of custom home building, including numerous million-dollar projects, have created an atmosphere that thrives on attention to detail. The craftsmanship, dedication and versatility needed to complete more than a hundred custom homes, has helped the Landcore team successfully transition into commercial construction. In addition to construction, our land development experience of transforming raw land into residential communities or commercial building complexes, has provided us with a holistic approach. Our team’s experience allows us to facilitate utility and zoning requirements, design, site development, and building construction to cater to our client’s specific needs. It is this combination of experience, and attention to detail, that has fostered many repeat clients and has created rewarding professional relationships with various architects and engineers. We, at Landcore, strive to maintain the highest level of quality, safety and attentiveness in all aspects of construction, rather it be commercial, industrial, residential or land development.
