For over 75 years we have been building excellence and serving the Pacific NW. We have the experience to recognize that every project presents a unique set of challenges that can impact cost, schedule, and team success. Consequently, we develop a custom approach for every client, regardless of how straight forward the project may appear. The result goes beyond project success to include the building of a valued relationship.
Emerick Construction is an established and locally-owned company committed to long-term stability. Paul B. Emerick was a teacher who built houses in his spare time on the weekends. His hobby grew rapidly through word of mouth, when, in 1943 he established a full-time concrete subcontracting firm. By the 1950s, we were doing commercial work and won our first $1 million contract with the Dairy Cooperative Association. Over three quarters of a century later, Emerick is ranked among the area's top general contractors and has earned a reputation as the contractor of choice for challenging, team-driven projects.
