Cornerstone’s impressive historical experience has given us the ability to see a project from conception to completion and to address potential problems before they occur, as well as giving us the foresight to avoid unnecessary costs. Although we've worked with clients in many areas of the northwest region, our work has focused primarily on projects in the Portland, Salem, and Eugene, Oregon areas.
Two Decades of Experience Set Us Apart
Our 20-year history of project management for the building, renovating, and/or remodeling of both public and private facilities is noteworthy. We have been recognized for outstanding management services by owners and contractors for developing and utilizing the most cost-effective CM/GC process in Oregon, and by the staffs and governing boards of multiple projects for exceptionally efficient management of complex and challenging public projects.
“The staff at Cornerstone is professional, knowledgeable and willing to work with the design team. Their knowledge of each building, the site conditions, and ability to work with owners were invaluable in laying the groundwork for coordinating all logistics and managing tight budgets. We especially appreciate their willingness to problem-solve during the course of construction.”
