Principles for a Superior Build

At CORE Construction, our dedication to Operational Excellence sets us apart. From better project planning through virtual construction, to better project management and sustainable on-site practices, our pledge of excellence is all-encompassing. Watch as CEO Jim Jacobs explains Operational Excellence and how we live and breathe this 6-part philosophy every day.



Zero incidents. Zero accidents. Nothing is more crucial than the safety of our employees, building partners, and clients. We recognize we are accountable for protecting people, and develop our safety culture around the importance of this foundational imperative. CORE safety initiatives include:

  • Every trade is required to provide a DAHA, which breaks down each task, makes considerations of potential hazards, and develops a plan to mitigate any hazards in order to perform the job safely.
  • On-sight management conducts daily safety observations through SafetyNet.
  • All project site supervisors are OSHA 30 trained, are experienced in identifying existing and predictable hazards, and are empowered to eliminate and mitigate unsafe conditions and behaviors.
  • Site-specific safety orientation is required for all trade members.
  • Interactive safety workshops are facilitated for employees, building partners and clients.
  • National and local Stand Downs are held to refocus all workers on safety, empowering our workforce and encouraging open communication.

We build to plans and specifications and to a quality that exceeds our client’s expectations. Our dedication to quality results in no re-work and complete project satisfaction. For us, there is no greater reward than seeing the efforts, labor, and dedication of a unified team come together in a high-quality building that meets the needs of its owner and occupants.



At CORE, our team balances quality work with schedule adherence. We commit to protecting your investment and to delivering a successful project on or ahead of schedule. With our scheduling software and professional personnel, there is no project too fast-tracked for us to accomplish. We ensure the timely delivery of each and every project.

From Our Clients

Over the past several years, I have had the opportunity to work with CORE on several projects at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL, one of the busiest and largest convention centers in the world.

These projects encompassed more than one million square feet of construction, and during each of these projects, the facility remained fully operational. The work was performed with no impact to the operational shows whether it be noise, dust, accessibility, or presentational issues of project materials and work crews.

The CORE team went above and beyond to be flexible and responsible stewards of our environment and I can recommend them highly as a building partner.” Project Manager, Capital Planning, Orange County Convention Center

In short, working with CORE has been a terrific experience.

Throughout PreConstruction and Construction, the CORE team has presented themselves as a professional, topnotch organization with construction quality, safety, and customer satisfaction at the top of their list of strengths. I have no hesitation at all working recommending them as a Construction Manager to others.
