The Best Choice for Construction

Colas Construction has extensive building experience across public, private, and nonprofit sectors, and numerous factors make us the best choice for your next construction project. Our in-house structural concrete offers a unique advantage to our Clients to regulate pricing, enhance quality control, safety, and reduce scheduling impacts. Long-standing relationships with Subcontractors create a team-oriented, collaborative approach to resolve any project issues.

  • Our scheduling process consists of comprehensive planning for clear expectations and commitment with the Project Team. Superintendents create a thorough CPM schedule that will serve as the project outline.
  • Quality assurance and attention to detail are the primary focus during construction. COLAS construction management software allows Owners and the Design Team to correspond, update submittal data, shop drawings, and all documentation for the project with ease. This allows for rapid decision making and high-level coordination.
  • While technology can make our lives easier, COLAS understands the importance of one-on-one meetings by phone or in person. The COLAS culture of openness and transparency serve in meeting project goals and achieving premium quality results. Headquartered in downtown Portland, COLAS values communication and prioritizes availability for Clients.
  • While there is tremendous pressure to deliver in our industry, we never sacrifice safety standards. Safety is always the first topic of every onsite meeting led by COLAS Superintendents and Foremen each week for all trades, in addition to individual toolbox safety meetings with oncoming crews. We want everyone involved in our projects to return home safely every day.

We won’t leave you hanging

Colas Construction’s commitment to Clients does not end when the project is complete.
