Community Impact

We believe great companies reveal their true character by the way they treat their people and their community. We’re grateful for our communities and strive to support them with our time and talent through volunteering.


We believe it is our professional and moral responsibility to ensure that every person on site is sufficiently aware of, and protected from, site hazards both common and unique. At Elder, people come first. At the end of the day it is important for everyone to go home safety to their families and community.


At Elder, we guide decision-makers through the commercial construction process, equipping them to make the best decision about their space.

“Elder was terrific to work with. They were able to show the flexibility that we needed to send the engineers back to the drawing board, re-engineer the flooring, re-engineer the civil work that was on the site, and then reprice it so that we knew we were gonna get an accurate cost for the building.
