Innovation. Risk. Reward.
Welcome to the 2022 edition of the Best of AEC Oregon (Architecture – Engineering – Construction) presented by the DJC Oregon. You may have noticed that we have completely updated our program. This year, we held open nominations. Once qualified, the individuals and firms were moved to the ballot for voting. And now, we reveal your choices.
The top 10 categories that received the most votes were (in alphabetical order): Abatement Company, Architectural Firm, Civil & Structural Engineering Firm, Commercial Cleaning, Construction Consulting Firm, Engineering, General Contractor, Painting Company, Remediation Company, and Restoration Company.
Construction in Oregon is currently healthy. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in 2021, there were 20,505 permits issued, with a total value of $4.7 million for new, privately owned housing units authorized. As of June, there were already nearly 10,000 permits issued with a market value of $2.3 million.
According to Dunn & Bradstreet, there are approximately 41,000 businesses that are Architectural, Engineering and Construction. There are some common attributes with people in this industry … most are innovative, they aren’t afraid to take chances, they are willing to work hard and they are passionate about what they do.
This year, one of our goals was to create a program that is nominated and voted by the audience who is most interested in the industry. With Best of AEC Oregon, we think you’ll discover this -- not only when looking to refer to another firm or find new services -- we hope these pages show off the experts that have been voted best.
When thinking about the future of any business, the reality is that resources will always be limited, and it’s up to decision-makers to do the best they can with what they have at any given moment. At the same time, making the right decisions today can have a substantial influence on the capabilities and opportunities for success tomorrow.
We encourage you to make it a point to discover more about the 132 businesses here.
