A reputation for success

We take great pride in the work we do and the relationships we build. That's why clients return to us again and again. But don’t take our word for it – we’ll let our customers speak for themselves.

MAPLETON SCHOOL DISTRICT

"It was an easy decision to hire McKenzie Commercial to oversee our $11 million bond renovation and seismic upgrade project on Mapleton High School and Mapleton Elementary School. Right from the start, Jim Mender understood our small, rural community and the need to preserve as much of the "history" of our building and facility as possible. Jim and his crew had a wealth of construction knowledge that enabled our projects to be completed on time and under budget. Their ability to foresee issues and plan accordingly, as well as their ability to adjust quickly to unforeseen events, is commendable. Jim and his crew attended several Mapleton sporting events and even attended our Open House to celebrate the "reopening" of our newly remodeled school. That kind of personal commitment is hard to find and it's refreshing to see!"

- Jodi O'Mara, Superintendent, Mapleton School District

SELCO COMMUNITY CREDIT UNION

"McKenzie Commercial Contractors has been a longtime trusted partner for nearly all of our facility projects, from renovations to new construction. They were at our side throughout the process, from the inception of an idea through successful completion. Their team was involved in far more than just the construction itself. They contributed countless hours of collaborative discussion, discovered unique solutions to perplexing problems, and with the neighboring businesses they represented our credit union well. Upon completion, McKenzie Commercial once again delivered to us quality and excellence."

- Lisa McCourt, Director of Facilities, SELCO Community Credit Union

- Lisa Fairchild, Roseburg Forest Products

THE DUCK STORE - CAMPUS

"After interviewing contractors to do an extensive remodel of our campus Duck Store, it was clear that McKenzie Commercial was the right company to partner with on this project. Everyone on their team had an amazing amount of work experience and were true professionals. Customer service is extremely important to us and we felt that the team at McKenzie Commercial embodied this value because they treated everyone on the project with respect and kindness. I don't think there was a day I didn't see a smile on their faces as they worked in challenging circumstances while our retail operations stayed open 100% during construction. The process went so smoothly that we didn't even see a significant decrease in sales and the end result has increased sales for our organization."

- Brian Wright, Merchandise Manager, The Duck Store / University of Oregon Bookstore, Inc

BAINBRIDGE DESIGN, INC

"Chad and the McKenzie Commercial staff were terrific to work with. They worked with our design team every step of the way to assure that we could reach our goals with the design concept and stay within the client's budget. During construction, their Superintendent on the job, Gordon Rea, was great about collaborating with us to problem solve any issues that came up and he took great pride in the work being done. All in all, it was a very satisfying project."

- Andrea Bainbridge, Bainbridge Design, Inc.

"Chad and his team were wonderful to work with from the start. They were very hands on and patient with us since this was our first remodel experience on a large scale.

Drs. Fine, Hoffman & Packer Ophthalmologists

"McKenzie Commercial is absolutely superb. Everyone in our office enjoyed working with [Senior Superintendent Dennis Martin] and his crew. The construction took place during full medical practice activities, and we were not down for one minute. The workmen took great pains to be quiet and unobtrusive... and accommodated us by arranging for certain activities to take place early in the evening at the conclusion of our office hours. We would unhesitatingly contact this company regarding any future construction... and would recommend them without reservation."

- Dr. I. Howard Fine, M.D. - www.finemd.com

I have only the highest regard for Lonnie King, Alan Reynolds and all the people at McKenzie Commercial for the quality of their work and integrity of their business practices."

- Lonny Prince, Executive Director of Greenhill Humane Society

- Cheryl O'Neill, Executive Director of Womenspace

ShelterCare

"From the initial planning and pricing to the final days of completing the punch list, Todd [Glenz] and his team were enthusiastic, energetic, honest and knowledgeable...

The work was completed in a timely fashion, and the results are better than we ever imagined."

"Todd Glenz and his team were professional in all their interactions with our staff, our designer and other contractors... and they managed unanticipated delays well.

They communicated with us weekly... In the end, the project was completed within budget and on time, and we are very satisfied customers."

- Ann Marie Mehlum, President & CEO of Summit Bank

Science Factory Children's Museum & Exploration Dome

"Throughout the process, your efforts to keep us informed about the progress of the work, communicate directly with our vendors, manage all permits and inspections, minimize costs whenever possible, and provide excellent advice whenever asked was very helpful...
