Let’s build
together.

Relationships build communities. And communities are stronger when we build on each other. With our values of Relationships, Ingenuity and Expertise, we build stronger communities together.

Relationships Define Our Vision

Relationships

As satisfying as a completed building is, our greatest pride comes from the relationships we’ve built along the way. Megen clients choose to work with us again and again. More than 80% of our contracts come from recurring business.

At Megen, you have direct access to project leadership at all times. Your project will be guided by a partner who takes the time to understand and advocate for your needs. Trust is built as we experience challenges and accomplishments together. We know how to get down to business, while infusing our enjoyment into the process. There’s nothing that says work relationships can’t be fun!

Diverse Perspectives Lead to Better Outcomes

Ingenuity

Every construction project brings unique challenges. Our team specializes in creative problem-solving. Your project team will take the time to understand your concerns. Then, we get to work, bringing fresh perspectives to create an optimal solution.

You need to handle complex negotiations with multiple municipalities. No problem. You need a construction partner to learn a brand-new technology. Bring it on. You need a way to continue stable operations in a way that doesn’t spook horses. Done. Whatever your challenge, we are committed to finding solutions, not compromises.

Executing Your Construction Vision

Expertise

When you have a vision for a new project, you need a partner with construction expertise to make your future-focused ideas real. Megen has guided complex construction projects for over 25 years. With an award-winning track record for quality and safety, we are experts in execution.

Whatever you’re building, chances are we’ve seen it. From school renovations to flagship museums to modern athletic venues to high-tech medical operations, we have the knowledge and experience to accomplish whatever your dream or vision is. The result? Transparent advice, predictability, and peace of mind.

Community Involvement

Stronger Communities are Built Together

“If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

Vibrant communities emerge when diverse people lend their expertise to achieve a shared vision. We are better and stronger together. At Megen, our passion for extraordinary community extends well beyond our building projects. Our leaders and employees serve on numerous boards and regularly volunteer with a wide variety of civic organizations. Wherever we serve, we bring an unwavering commitment to make our community the best it can be.
