We Make Construction Easy
We are engaged with the project from the earliest stages of planning, offering our expertise every step of the way.
I think people are the driving force at O‑A‑K.
O‑A‑K's safety culture is rooted in the belief that every person matters.
It all comes down to the people we work for and work with.
We manage construction projects within seven distinct industries, including K12, Higher Education, Commercial, Non-Profit, Government, Healthcare, and Aviation.
O‑A‑K understands the need to be great stewards of resources...they understand that innovation is needed to find efficiencies and flexibility is needed to meet the needs of a complex organization.
Want to Join the O‑A‑K Team?
We look for people who think outside the box. People willing to go above and beyond.
As an employee-owned construction company since the day we were founded, we are driven by the communities where we work and live. We can’t say it enough. Our people are our greatest asset.
