In the construction industry, quality work is about two things: the final product and the journey it takes to produce it. Since 1948, we’ve worked with countless clients on large-scale projects. But what we’re most proud of is how many of them enjoyed working with us so much that they hire CE&C again.

Higher Education

Green River Community College
Cedar Hall Renovation

Location: Auburn, WA
Owner: Green River Community College
Architect: SM Stemper
LEED: Silver

After completing several renovations for the College, CE&C was awarded the challenge to selectively demolish an existing three story, 54,000 square foot concrete classroom building, which included selectively removing slabs of concrete roof. We then installed an interior steel frame structure and rebuilt the classrooms. The access to the building was reconfigured with the main entrance being reconstructed and the building exterior being resided.

Evergreen State College - Daniel J. Evans Library Modernization

Location: Olympia, WA
Owner: Evergreen State College
Architect: Studio Meng Strazzara

After doing several other significant projects with Evergreen State College, CE&C had the pleasure of taking on the modernization of their Daniel J. Evans library. This project represented a complex engineering structural upgrade involving a new 24” thick concrete sheer wall installation extending through 4 floors of the existing building. It also included the renovation of 100,000 SF of the Library’s interior space.

Client Feedback: As I reviewed our past projects and looked at our present Daniel J. Evans Remodel work, I have come to realize that each of our projects have had significant added value without commensurate costs to the owner. You and your company have had significant influence in creating this benefit to the owner. Your company’s creative scheduling and construction coordination along with the extensive construction experience benefits the project team and helps fulfill the project’s design intent while staying within budgetary constraints. - Hal R. Van Gilder, The Evergreen State College Project Manager, Facilities Services

CE&C really went the 'extra mile' in helping the Owner work through some very difficult problems to resolve a number of challenging issues. I found your company to be honest and fair, qualities that proved to be critical in the successful outcome of the project. I would like to especially acknowledge Darrell Barnes and his efforts, he was an effective partner in the project and exemplified CE&C's motto "Relationships are the foundation of our Business." I can wholeheartedly recommend CE&C for your next project. - Jim Cave, Development Services Director, True North

Renovations & Multi-Family

Appian Way Apartments -
Mercy Housing Northwest

Location: Kent, WA
Owner: Mercy Housing Northwest
Architect: Environmental Works

This project involved an extensive renovation of an eight-building affordable housing apartment complex. It consisted of 154 units. The project also required construction of a new community center. Always up for a challenge, CE&C had to do some creative planning to allow as many tenants as possible to occupy units while construction was underway. The solution? Constructing in 5 phases to allow on-going occupancy while meeting project goals.

Client Feedback: I worked with CE&C for the first time on a gut rehabilitation project for an affordable housing provider during one of the most volatile construction price escalation periods in recent times; and CE&C was very fair and forthcoming with the owner’s team. Due to the extensive renovation at Appian Way, the project was phased in order to minimize the impact on our current residents. CE&C was very effective at minimizing the disruption to the tenants during construction. CE&C’s employees have worked with the company for decades and provide a variety of highly skilled construction services. Significant owner driven changes were made and CE&C was responsive to each request. Project financing drove a demanding schedule, which CE&C was able to meet even though many design modifications were required. - Gina Mohr, Construction Manager - Mercy Housing Northwest

Education - K-12

McMicken Heights Elementary School

Location: SeaTac, WA
Owner: Highline School District No. 401
Architect: TCF Architecture
LEED: Silver

This project consisted of a new, 76,000 square foot, state-of-the-art elementary school with comprehensive angles and multiple materials being used. The project was a LEED Silver Project that utilized pervious pavements and recycled materials. The landscape design was implemented to use natural elements for ground watering and recycling. The innovative project even includes areas of the interior building that have windows allowing children to see the actual internal construction of the building.

Client Feedback: CE&C’s collective listening skills, coupled with their strong construction capability, allowed them to both construct the project expeditiously, while coordinating closely with the school district to minimize change orders and accelerate the commissioning and occupancy phases of the process. In our experience the CE&C team is truly dedicated and devoted to achieving the client’s construction quality, schedule, and budget goals. - Clinton G. Marsh, Construction Program Manager, Hill International
