Client Testimonials

what clients say about our company
  • “At every step of the way Absher helped us to manage cost, schedule and performance and delivered a project that exceeded expectations in every regard.”

    Ben de Rubertis, Design Director, Flad Architects
  • “When problems were discovered — and even in some stressful situations — this team came together and figured out solutions, and I’m really proud of the way people worked together. They also did a good job providing preconstruction services in partnership with the University and the architect.”

    Mr. Steve Tatge, University of Washington
  • “As the Construction Planning Principal I could not have asked for a better company to work with . I believe our needs were met to the fullest expectations of the Yakima School District. Their regard for safety of not only the workers but the safety of the Davis students and staff were tops on Absher's mind. The quality of work was superior and if it wasn't to Absher specifications it was redone.”

    Jim Wright, Yakima School District
  • “Pacific Plaza Development LLC contracted with Absher Construction for the construction of a $42 Million mixed use, public private development project. We renovated and seismically upgraded an existing parking garage owned by the City of Tacoma and added 3 levels of new construction. This resulted in “like new” structure totaling over 250,000 SF of parking, office and retail uses in the heart of downtown Tacoma.

    Absher Construction performed the work with excellence in all aspects required. From preconstruction services to determine the scope of the project through closeout, Absher provided skilled/responsive personnel and management every step of the way.
    Absher also provided construction and documentation requirements for our LEED Platinum core and shell aspirations. We received our LEED Platinum certification from USGBC confirming Absher’s success in their critical role for this rare achievement.”
