Sundt’s Northwest team brings deep experience and a shared commitment to sustainable, community-focused outcomes for every project we build.
A TRUSTED PARTNER
Collaborative, experienced, community-focused. In a word: trusted.
Sundt’s alternative delivery expertise, innovations in complex infrastructure and manufacturing projects, and commitment to partnering with local and diverse business enterprises have made us a trusted partner across markets.
Our reputation as one of the safest contractors in the nation is accompanied by our track record of exceptional project management and partnering. Sundt teams are also known for their level of local engagement, going the extra mile to keep people informed and to mitigate construction and environmental impacts.
Our success in solving clients’ toughest challenges begins with a team-based approach.
We maintain longstanding, collaborative relationships with owners, designers, and community members to ensure we find the best solutions for each project. Whether solving major logistical challenges in accelerated bridge construction or converting a half-mile-long drainage ditch into a world-class linear park, our people thrive on pioneering new approaches to meet stakeholder needs.
Also, our in-house virtual design and construction (VDC) and self-perform work in key trades enable us to implement creative solutions while maintaining control over critical-path scopes. This provides cost certainty and predictable outcomes in safety and quality, meeting the owner’s vision even on fast-track schedules.
SUSTAINABLE BY DESIGN
Early involvement builds our holistic understanding of systems and stakeholders
Green buildings and infrastructure require a shared vision that sees every system as well as how those systems interact. By establishing that vision—and assigning responsibility—early in preconstruction, we can cut waste and use more sustainable methods and materials over the entire project. Also, by empowering and linking up key front-line people earlier in the process, we have the space to form innovative ideas and scale them up sooner.
From local workforce development to sourcing local materials, to supporting area nonprofits, we work to build prosperity for communities.
With each project, we’re demonstrating our commitment to grow a highly skilled, diverse workforce. Sundt maximizes opportunities for local disadvantaged businesses, larger specialized contractors, and individuals who want to begin a career in construction. Also, both our in-house training and community college partner-based workforce development programs have earned national recognition as models for growing the skilled trades.
Since its founding in 1999, the Sundt Foundation has reflected our employee-owners’ passion for giving back to the places where we live and work.
The Sundt Foundation, which is funded primarily by contributions from Sundt employee-owners that are matched by the company, has awarded more than $11 million in donations to area nonprofits across our regions, including the greater Portland metro area. This includes $200,000 in recent Covid relief grants that supported community food banks, domestic violence shelters and front-line healthcare workers.
