Our Team

One of Cord Construction’s greatest advantages is our experienced staff, which is large enough to handle a wide variety of construction projects but small enough to give each project the individual attention it deserves.

Our Approach

While our company and the scope of our work have grown in size and complexity since our founding, we remain committed to the fundamentals of solid planning and a dedication to customer service. At least 75 percent of our total annual volume comes from previous clients or referrals, which demonstrates our dedication to client satisfaction.
