Centrex Construction was awarded a contract by Columbia Helicopters Inc., to construct a new state of the art "Turbine Engine Test Cell" on our property located next to Aurora State Airport on Arndt Road.
This complex project has required the use of virtually every trade in the construction business as well as Aerospace Engineers who are responsible to ensure this facility meets the requirements of the FAA, U.S. Army, Columbia Helicopters, Honeywell, and numerous customers from around the world.
The Centrex Construction team has met or exceeded every budget, schedule and quality requirement set forth by Columbia Helicopters, Inc. Program Management.
I would highly recommend Centrex Construction to anyone seeking a team to manage a complex and demanding project. The integrity and professionalism exhibited by the Centrex team has made for a great working relationship between our two companies.

I have had the opportunity to work with Jim Severson and his company, Centrex Construction, in the redevelopment of Southend Airpark at the Aurora State Airport. Jim has become a vital member of my development team, overseeing the construction of a new 37,000 sf hangar and office building, besides upgrading existing facilities to meet current standards and technological requirements.
Jim is a strong team leader and project manager, leading by example and with integrity.
Jim has consistently followed through on every project assigned, and has made himself available at a momment's notice. I am happy to count Jim Severson as one of my friends, and very glad to recommend him as a General Contractor of choice.

In reference to the aforementioned project I wish to thank you and your staff for the excellent product provided to the Oregon Department of Aviation (ODA). Your team's adherence to schedule and budget was commendable. Furthermore, your attention to detail and quality will surely provide ODA with years of uninterrupted, low maintenance use. It has been a pleasure working with Centrex and I welcome the opportunity to partner on future projects.
Should anyone wish to discuss this project further, I will be happy to provide a favorable reference regarding your firm's abilities.

I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation for Centrex Construction, Inc.
The grace of God initially connected me with Jim Severson as I was exploring possibly buying some land and building my company headquarters. That good fortune ulitmately lead us into a project that stretched over almost two years from initial idea thru planning, architectural work, and finally construction. Throughout all aspects of our project, Centrex performed with integrity and efficiency to supply me with a superb custom building. The whole Centrex team, from field supervisors and office personnel to Jim and his leadership were professional and courteous throughout the project. The 7 month construction phase was completed on schedule and right on budget!
I still maintain an excellent working relationship with Centrex as they have completed numerous tenant improvements and system installations for me. I have nothing but the highest praise for Centrex as a General Contractor and would recommend them unequivocally.

I am so pleased with Centrex Construction. I employed Centrex to build a 3000sf veterinary hospital in 2011, in which I now work in every day. The project entailed removing most of an existing structure, adding on new square footage, and making it all look new. The construction project was a complete success. The building is high quality, solid, beautiful, and built to specifications that my architect wanted.
Very importantly to me is that working with the people at Centrex was always pleasant and professional. I was able to go about my business as a veterinarian while they managed all of the subcontractors, city inspectors, and banks. Never once did I have to speak to work out any problems or issues with the city, subs, or any other person. Furthermore, I was always able to speak to my project manager without delay, and the project manager was almost always on site actually managing the project!
Centrex's project bid was strongly competetive to others that I recieved. The change orders that I requested were also reasonable and fair. Centrex was able to work with me to find cost savings in the project when I needed to value engineer some parts.
Added to this, Centrex finished the project on time and on budget. I confidently recommend Centrex for your building project. Please feel free to contact me about my experience with Centrex.
