OUR APPROACH TO AFFORDABLE HOUSING
We build affordable housing projects all across the Pacific Northwest. New construction, occupied renovation, farm worker and labor force housing… we have experience in this field that few other contractors can match. Our greatest asset is the fact that we truly care about the success of your project, and the people you serve. We’re not just knowledgeable. We are profoundly motivated. Our team can help you make the most of your funding dollars.
We can guide you and your team early in the project development so you can plan for actual site conditions, develop an accurate budget, and forecast for an appropriate scope of work.
CUSTOMIZED PROJECT MANAGEMENT PLAN
Micro-scheduling, selective remodeling, a dedicated relocation specialist…these are just some of the ways we can meet the unique needs of your project.
For us, construction is about building structures and relationships that endure. And that means we’re there for you with comprehensive warranty support well after the project is complete.
THE EXTRA MILE
What Matters Most
We work with extraordinary, mission-driven housing providers throughout our region who are doing their part to help people transcend poverty, care for the disabled and elderly, and provide housing for an essential agricultural labor force.
These organizations have such a heart for what they do and it’s a privilege to be part of the team that helps them fulfill their mission — even if it means we have to spend some time on the road.
AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROJECTS
“BECAUSE IT’S ESSENTIAL,
IT’S ESSENTIAL TO DO IT RIGHT”
A BUILDER’S PERSPECTIVE
ON AFFORDABLE HOUSING CONSTRUCTION
“By some estimates, about 13% of Washington State residents fall below the poverty line and their need for housing outstrips our regional inventory. My team and I are proud to be able to come alongside affordable housing providers who are committed to responding to this housing crisis.
There’s nothing more satisfying than to go back and revisit some of our projects and see tenants taking pride in where they live, or to hear the stories of people who have been positively impacted by having a safe, affordable home. It can literally transform lives. Housing — shelter — is a basic human need. It’s essential. And because it’s essential, it’s essential to build it right.
My background is as an active duty and reserve Marine. I like clear directives. And our team has distilled our approach into four imperatives: Integrity. Communication. Transparency. Teamwork.
This field of construction is our way of making the world a little better place. And I think that’s a beautiful reason to build.”
