What sets OCCI apart from its competitors?
Our focus has never been our competition, rather, we spend our time and energy attempting to transcend commodity, defy comparison, and become a category of one.
What types of buildings do you build?
Commercial, Industrial and Agricultural steel, tilt up, block and traditional stick built structures of nearly any size and/or complexity.
How big and small are your projects?
We have completed projects as simple as 5,000 sq. ft. shops to 120,00 0sq. ft. facilities that incorporate complex service departments, HVAC systems, large power requirements, and multi-story office spaces that involve elaborate finish schedules.
What is the difference between Bid-Build & Design-Build?
O’Brien Construction is both a Design-Build and Bid-Build full service General Contractor. Design-Build is a method of project delivery in which one entity – the Design-Build team – works under a single contract with the project owner to provide design and construction services. Under Bid-Build, design and construction services are split into separate entities, separate contracts, separate work. Both methods offer their advantages, dependent upon the application.
What buildings in town have you built over the years?
Toyota of Tri-Cities, Bybee Farms Freezer, Russ Dean RV, Coca Cola Distribution, Meier Inc. Office Building, AAA Mini-Storage, C&E Trenching Shop, Vista I, II, III and King City Warehouses, Columbia Valley Family Farms, Barnard Griffin, Kiska Farms, Zen-Noh Hay, Garland Gymnastics, Valmont, and Columbia Basin Ice, to name a few.
What is the job of a General Contractor?
A qualified General Contractor should be capable of overseeing construction projects from inception through completion. They should be experienced and proficient in every aspect of construction, from sitework and utilities, to structural construction, Electrical, HVAC, Plumbing, and finishes.
Where do you see OCCI in 5 years?
Our goal is to diversify into select bid list construction while continuing over 45 years of Design-Build project delivery.
“O’Brien Construction has been my primary builder for over 25 years. In that time they’ve built my shop buildings, onion and potato storage, onion fresh-pack facility, and my current office. Meticulous and detailed, they consistently deliver well-designed, quality buildings in a timely fashion and I highly recommend them.”
“O’Brien Construction built our premier self storage facility in two phases between ’08 and ’10, and we are still very pleased with the work that was done. Our customers enjoy the quality, the friendly atmosphere, and all the security features that were put in as part of the construction project.”
“We employed O’Brien Construction in 06-07 to construct our 43,000 sq. ft. Toyota dealership in Kennewick. We were very happy with the timeliness and attention to detail. We would have no reservations recommending O’Brien Construction.”
