About

Our Mission…

“Create a positive experience for our clients and their consultants at all times in all phases of the construction process.”

Everything we do… all the time and effort we put into our work, like a laser, is focused on achieving this mission. As a matter of policy, Verus Construction accepts only as many projects as our principals can oversee. The result of our focused commitment is the achievement of this goal.

 

We not only build construction projects, we build trust. This is evident in our list of repeat business clientele. Our proactive approach, attention to detail and overall determination to achieve the highest standards in construction is the reason our clients continually place their trust in us. What is also vital is building trust within the sub-contractor/vendor community. We make it clear; we are not in the business of putting sub-contractors out of business. Our sub-contractors/vendors trust that working with us toward the common goal of achieving our “mission” will result in greater long-term profitability and security. By leveraging our in-house expertise, state of the art technology and strong relationships with the finest sub-contractors and vendors in the industry, Verus ensures our projects will be completed on time, under budget and with consistently superior quality.
