Cheers to 11 Years! When we reflect about how far we’ve come as a company since establishing in 2011, we are proud and grateful for this group.

We’ve started saying, we’re “redefining the way we build.” Our mission is to redefine the building process to be more informed, collaborative, and efficient. A process that can perhaps change our industry where design+build becomes the traditional method of building. We realized that when a delivery method where project contributors are on the same team, innovative ideas, creative solutions and monumental results are born.

Together, we can do more. From reducing building maintenance, conserving more resources, creating better guest experiences, reducing our climate impact, preserving history, and creating better neighborhoods sustainably. And by asking the right questions, being curious, taking chances, finding creative solutions, mastering new technology and just plain hard work, we can be the difference makers.  Only together can we redefine the way we build.

We are speechless. Three of our projects were recognized at the Daily Journal of Commerce Oregon 2022 Top Projects Awards last night.

We received two first place prizes for Nestucca K-8 Expansion (General Contractor) and Amaterra Winery (Owner’s Rep). Additionally, Steeplejack Brewery was awarded second place, a project our OCA team proudly designed.

Huge congratulations to the teams that worked on these projects and all other companies that were recognized for their contributions to our communities.

Wow, what an honor to be listed as one of the best winery contractors in the U.S. by General Contractors Magazine!
