BEING
SCRAPPY

That means working with what we got. We don’t sit back and wait for someone else to take care of the problem. That’s not our style. If a job needs to be done, we roll up our sleeves and get to work. We get creative with the resources we have. If we make a mistake along the way, that’s ok. In fact, we welcome it. That’s how we got to where we are.

There's no room for self-important connoisseurs on our team. We want authentic people who ask questions and stay engaged in the process. Those who seek to understand the communities that we do business in and the cities that we call home. We didn't start this company with all the answers, but we've always worked hard to find the solutions.

We build trust with the people we work with. From the lenders to the city planners to our team members, we don’t outsource personal relationships. We invest in the long haul by building a rapport with the communities we serve. If we take on a project, we commit to building an asset that the city can be proud of. We were taught to always stand behind our word and never say something we don’t mean. Trust is everything.

We believe that cultivating passion and creativity in our business is reflected in the experiences we create. Our team is constantly striving to reach their full potential. That means developing and utilizing talents. It means never settling with mediocre and always striving to improve. Just like our founder reinvested in his family, we continue to reinvest in ours.

Over four decades ago, our founder taught us the importance of understanding the communities we do business in. He taught us the value of respect and empathy. That's how we build relationships with the communities and guests that we serve. There is no job that's beneath us, no opinion too small. Our team will always seek to understand the needs of everyone we do business with. We take the time to listen.
