Schaffran Construction is an American Society for Health Care Engineering certified, family-owned commercial construction company with operations in Portland and Bend, Oregon. Through decades of experience in sustaining work at Oregon Health Sciences University and other facilities, we have developed an approach and company culture based on collaboration, commitment, safety, and service. We understand that sustaining specialty construction projects in institutional environments involve many stakeholder groups, each with their own needs and expectations related to pre-construction planning, construction, and final project delivery. From project scoping, through design, and finally the completion of construction, we strive to work collaboratively with all involved to ensure that the end result exceeds expectations, not only in quality of construction, but also in quality of experience. We succeed in this because of our deep commitment to our clients and the institutions we serve.

At Schaffran Construction we understand that our work is not only a reflection of our values and standards, but also the values, standards, and quality of care provided by our client institutions. Our team and our partners are committed to providing excellent service to you, your institution, and your end-users. We hope to hear from you and work with you to successfully deliver your specialty construction project.
