CORE Construction

Our business is the business of building. The most essential component of any building is the foundation. With a strong foundation, a building can stand tall for centuries. For a company to stand for centuries, it too, must also have a strong, solid foundation.

CORE Construction’s rich history started with one key moment in 1937, when our founder, Otto Baum, applied for a loan to start a masonry company. He had nothing to use as collateral except for his proven character and exemplary reputation. When the bank manager asked the loan officer why they should consider Otto's request, the officer simply replied, "I trust him." This event sparked the beginning of a company that would one day grow to over 26 offices across nine states, supported by over 1,200 employees and a strong culture built on the same trust Otto started the company with in 1937.

Utilizing comprehensive construction knowledge and industry expertise, CORE provides exceptional building services in 13 markets: Commercial, Energy, Solar, Federal, Healthcare, Higher Education, Hospitality, K-12, Disaster Recovery, Light Industrial, Multifamily Residential, Municipal, and Senior Living.
