Construction Leaders Since 1997

Construction Leadership Since 1997
Strong leadership serves as a building block for all our operations. At Pyramid Construction, our staff is our greatest asset. We know that our success and, ultimately, the success of your project, relies on our employees. We understand that you place your trust in us to build your project because of our staff’s qualifications, experience, and knowledge in delivering construction solutions. Each of our project managers are required to have 10-hour OSHA training. Additionally, our superintendents must have 30-hour OSHA training every five years.
Safety: First. Last. Always!
We are committed to construction safety. It is a commitment and the first core value that we have built into our culture. This commitment begins with the philosophy of “Safety First” in everything we do. We mean it when we say, “Safety: First. Last. Always!”. We are dedicated to centering each construction phase on resident, staff, visitor, and employee safety. Safety guides our processes, planning, and approach to each project.
At Pyramid Construction, our standards are guided by our core values that define our commitment to providing a safe work environment supported by policies that meet or exceed federal, state, and local laws. We are constantly thinking about ways to work safely. We define success in safety when every employee on every project site can return home to their families safely.
Our safety program is integrated into our culture and on our job sites through training, education, and going beyond industry standards. We make an industry-wide effort to train our colleagues to prevent any worker in the industry from suffering an injury. We provide on-site training for various hazards that workers may encounter, including job safety analysis, OSHA 10- and 30-hour training for construction and general industry (500 & 501), and even confined space, excavation, fall protection, and equipment operating training. We are vigilant in inviting OSHA consultants and private safety consultants to survey our safety program and provide feedback to keep every single site an injury-free zone.
Our construction team personnel are certified in First Aid, CPR, AED, and OSHA 10-hour at a minimum. Each year, our team members complete additional safety training to enhance their knowledge of project-specific challenges. We also have a Text Observation Process (TOP) program used for superintendents and project managers to report Safety Observations easily and Near Misses and corrective actions in real-time from an app on their phones. Safety Talks are presented every week and shared with subcontractors. We also have a subcontractor prequalification process to review subcontractors’ safety process and financials. We believe in the importance of regular safety inspections and weekly jobsite inspections. Year after year, we maintain our EMR rating well below the industry average of 1.00.
Our most important asset is our people. We consider every individual in our offices and on a job site our company’s responsibility. Employee safety not only affects what happens on the job; it also affects the personal lives of our workers and the people they love.
We Believe In Steadfast Integrity
Our team is held to an ethical standard. We believe in healthy, long-term relationships based on clear communication and transparency – we do not just “talk the talk.” We tailor our services to you. When you are looking for a construction partner, it can often be confusing as to what services are the best fit for your project. We have a reputation for working with you to find construction solutions that align with your goals and ultimately provide the greatest value.
For project owners, there is a lot at stake – money, time, reputations, and the future of your business. We work as your advocate, so you can focus on your business, knowing that we are guiding the design and construction process. Open communication, defining expectations, and a transparent process help you see what is going on each step of the way.
We have been providing construction services since 1997, including construction management, general construction, design-build, and self-performing services for the civic/government, corporate, healthcare, higher education, hospitality, industrial, multi-family housing, non-profit/community, PK-12 education, religious, retail, and senior living.

A Strong Foundation Begins with Pyramid
Let’s Build Together
Our clients rely on us as a trusted advisor and an extension of their team to help them achieve their project objectives without compromising their vision. We strive to earn your trust every day, and we pride ourselves on partnerships and our growing list of repeat customers. Our success is defined by the long-lasting relationship we share with our clients long after the project is complete.
We treat each project as our most important job. An executive of the company is personally involved with every project we undertake to address our clients’ interests effectively, ethically, and economically. Because our approach is comprehensive, each project is managed with the maximum combination of experience, technical knowledge, and management representation, regardless of scale, schedule, or complexity. From healthcare to senior living to student housing, we have the resources to construct your most demanding projects.
Clients of All Spectrums
The Markets We Serve
From healthcare to senior living to student housing, we have the resources to construct your most demanding projects.
Civic / Government
We are committed to advancing how construction supports and fosters civic life. We build safe and welcoming buildings where citizens can grow and learn, and where they can strengthen their community ties. Our civic portfolio includes firehouses, libraries, and federal office fit outs that shape the built environment and create lasting value for the communities they serve.
We understand the unique approach that corporate and specialty facilities require from multi-story corporate offices to mission-critical data centers. We work closely with each client to establish a vision reflecting the company’s mission, culture, and current and future needs. This approach supports changing technologies, provides flexibility for growth, and enhances a corporate sense of community to attract and retain the best and brightest employees. With a hands-on approach to construction management and single-source solutions, we provide clients with confidence that their facilities will be completed on time, on budget, and to their specifications.
Just as any building needs a strong foundation, our students need a strong foundation as they advance their education. We are continually inspired by opportunities to build physical environments that enhance academic communities across the full spectrum of programs, organizational structures, and institutional missions. We are dedicated to creating dynamic, learning environments that provide opportunities for students to collaborate and inspire intellectual an physical activity and social connections. We keep current with educational trends and supplement our project experience with independent research initiatives and post-occupancy evaluations. In addition to building instructional and research spaces that are responsive and adaptable to the program needs, we also place a great deal of attention on “in-between” spaces to foster social interaction and the cultural attributes of the academic community. We realize the value of a close working relationship as we collaborate with you and the design professionals to refine and monitor program scope, cost, schedule, and quality. We construct facilities that serve the needs of your students for decades to come.
The hospitality industry focuses on creating positive and memorable guest experiences and building popular destinations. Hotel, restaurant, and entertainment venue construction work should not get in the way of that. We have experience meeting the needs of hospitality clients and executing multimillion-dollar renovations and additions with minimal interruptions and fast-tracked operations where needed. We do this with our in-house team and working with trusted subcontractors. Careful management of our construction sites allows us to deliver confidence and quality with each project.
Our team specializes in speed to market, tenant make-ready services in new and existing facilities. We work with many industrial developers to complete design and construction of their tenant spaces quickly and without disruption. With a hands-on construction approach, we simplify complexities while reducing costs and provide clients with peace of mind that their facilities will be completed to their specifications.
Multi-Family / Mixed-Use
From market-rate multi-family housing to PHFA tax credit housing, we construct living spaces where your clients come home to relax, recharge, and live their lives. Whether planning a traditional townhouse complex or mixed-use apartment building, our experience and trade contractor network will provide value to you as we develop budgets, establish project phasing, and identify product alternatives that achieve your vision. Our experience extends to providing construction services for renovations, additions, new construction, and other types of work for commercial residences, including older and historical buildings repositioned for multi-family housing.
Non-profit / Community
We believe that every person should have access to well-built spaces where they can thrive. From churches to shelters to youth centers, we partner with the community and non-profit associations to build spaces where people can grow spiritually, become healthier, be better educated, and increase economic mobility. We care about the lasting impact on partner communities.
Every school building program sets out to achieve a mission. This mission aims to establish a foundation that enables students to gain the skills necessary to become productive and successful adults. Likewise, we realize that a winning project begins with a team approach. From planning through occupancy, we will work with you and your design professionals to refine and monitor the scope, cost, schedule, and quality of your project, which will serve the needs of your students for decades to come.
Our firm has a special understanding of religious construction and experience in working with clergy, building committees, and congregations. We approach the construction of places of worship with reverence and apply our liturgical understanding to the design of worship centers to enhance the action of your worship practices. Our construction considers the liturgy, how worship is conducted and applies the function of the programming requirements throughout the building.
Our senior living construction professionals are capable of building facilities that meet the needs for independent living, assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing, as well as active adult communities. We build to the location, lifestyle, and services required for your campus. We understand the physical, emotional, and aesthetic needs of seniors. Relying on this knowledge, we provide solutions that address regulatory requirements and that your residents are proud to call home. Our experience creates positive results for senior living owners, operators, and developers throughout the industry by understanding their businesses and the needs that come along with them.
Collaborating with Dave Maule Architects and Pyramid Construction on the Hershey build was an intense project. Even though we were under tight time constraints, we found two partners who shared our vision on a large scale custom project requiring mountains of detail work and the ability to switch gears on the fly; their efforts speak for themselves.
