Catalano Construction Inc. sets itself apart with a personal approach to its work, Vice President Jason Catalano says. “We pay more attention to the details and our relationships,” he declares. “I’d rather make a little less profit on a project than have it not establish a relationship where an owner comes to us first.”

ClarkWith its knowledge of lean methods, Clark Construction Co. helped to deliver a successful project to an excited MSU campus.

By Staci Davidson, Senior Editor at Knighthouse Publishing 

When Clark Construction Co. began its work on the Michigan State University (MSU) Broad College of Business Edward J. Minskoff Pavilion, the company knew it would be a unique project and it was well prepared in a number of ways. Not only had Clark worked with MSU before, but it comes to work with “a design-assist, preconstruction-type of mentality” in terms of the delivery of a project, according to Project Manager Nick Henne. This was exactly the type of approach the MSU project required, because it equipped the team to face the challenges it encountered.

Institutions of higher learning such as the University of Nevada, Reno, (UNR) provide students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in life, but when it comes to building successful construction projects on campus there’s no room for learning on the job. That’s why CORE Construction was tapped to build the latest addition to the UNR campus, the William N. Pennington Student Achievement Center. 

For many years, CORE Construction has been recognized as a leader in the construction of education projects, including multiple successful projects on college and university campuses across the country. Nevada Vice President Jim Miller says the company’s experience and expertise in the higher education sector have been contributing factors to the success of the Pennington project from the very beginning, and they continue to play a crucial role as the company prepares to finish the project by early 2016.
