Hours of Operation
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 multiple locations across the U.S., supported by over 1,200 employees and a strong culture built on the same trust Otto started the company with in 1937.
Anything designed to last must have a strong foundation. With a solid support, a building can stand tall for decades, and, with exceptional construction, that building can serve as a pillar of community pride for generations to come.
For a company to stand tall for centuries, it, too, must have a solid foundation. At CORE Construction, our foundation is built on trust. Every project begins with team members who have unwavering trust in one another, allowing CORE to operate as a unified group. Together, every CORE team member works collaboratively to deliver construction services that meet the needs of our clients and the needs of the communities we are privileged to serve.
