After his first construction project, a tree house when he was a kid, Chris knew he was onto something. In the time between that tree house and founding 44 Northwest Chris worked for his father manufacturing speakers in the car audio industry. There he developed his instincts for business, and went on to earn a business degree from Sonoma State University to greaten his knowledge of business. Following graduation he worked as a stage hand and set builder. During this time he started doing small construction projects in his spare time. These became larger in scope and more frequent until Chris eventually decided to get his general contractor’s license and combine his passion for building with his passion for running a business. He has never looked back. When he’s not working Chris spends time with his wife and daughters, goes camping, plays tennis, and thinks business.
FOCUS ON CLIENTS, AND GREAT WORK WILL FOLLOW.
It’s a simple and effective philosophy. We’ve always been skilled craftsmen, so we decided to dedicate ourselves to better relationships. Honesty, integrity, responsiveness – people like those things, whether as a client or our coworker. Everyone may say that, but you can take us seriously. With a growing reputation as Bend Oregon’s most respected contractor, our client-first philosophy has made us a top-rated Bend Oregon contractor on Yelp, with immaculate work that speaks for itself.
PARTNERSHIP ISN’T A SALES PITCH. IT’S AN ONGOING CONVERSATION.
We take our client partnerships seriously. We invite you to talk to us and let us know what’s important to you every step of the way. Nine times out of ten, we’ll come up with a plan that you’ll love. And on the rare occasion that we miss the mark, we’ll listen even more until we get it right. Every process is unique, and every client has an individual need. A dedicated partnership with you, your architect, and your designer through every phase of construction ensures each job will be professional, memorable, and, of course, personal.
EXPERIENCE IS IMPORTANT.
We take pride in our city and in building Bend homes that will last for generations. Experience can be the difference that makes a project a success, whether we’re navigating complicated city permits or knowing the right specialist to fulfill a certain task. Plus, you really do get what you pay for when you work with us. When we make a promise, we keep it because we know we can. And when we finish a job, we know you’ll be as proud of it as we are.
WE BELIEVE IN TEAM CHEMISTRY.
Our team is comprised of people who are not only experts, but who also work together all the time. We know each other’s tendencies, complement one another, and anticipate trouble before it happens. It’s a nice way to work. We also collaborate with a consistent collection of exceptional trade contractors to support our core team. These Central Oregon companies work with us again and again.
It sounds simple, but a happy worker makes for better work. And better work makes for repeat clients. It’s a simple formula that we trust.
