A suite of advantages that sets us apart and gives our clients and our projects a tangible edge.

Take the historical values that have guided our Company for 125 years and combine them with leading-edge construction technologies. Then you’ll understand what makes us one of the most successful contractors in the West. You’ll also see why such a high percentage of our jobs are with clients or industry professionals we’ve worked with before. We’re always looking for ways to push our industry forward—proven methods that make a difference.

Self-Performed Work. Our people take great pride in their jobs. By self-performing, we are able to provide efficient schedules and a high level of quality. Our trade-specific crews can handle multiple projects simultaneously.

Project Management System. We use ViewPoint, a project management software tool that helps with daily project management. This tool also keeps the entire project team apprised of all project information.

Cost Accounting. Our ViewPoint system provides detailed cost accounting for any contract format and will support the owner’s internal cost accounting codes. Additionally, our project management and cost accounting systems are tied together in ViewPoint, providing project management efficiency.

Quality Control. We ensure the highest quality standards through reliable subcontractors, comprehensive planning, thorough preconstruction efforts and rigorous inspections.

Sustainable Resources. Our LEED Accredited Professionals work with the project team to consider environmentally sustainable solutions. Opportunities range from recycling programs to official LEED certifications to High Performance Green Buildings (HPGB).

Small Business Outreach. We have a dedicated Small Business Outreach Manager to support our client’s small business goals.  Inclusion is a proactive business decision, based on the belief that excellence in performance is possible by maximizing the participation of small business participation.
