Building a Better Standard

Our Projects

Our Projects


See what they're saying about us.

Gerding Builders was always very professional and responsive to our needs with the original build of the Boys & Girls Club of Corvallis, as well as the 21,000 addition years later with the New Center for Youth Excellence Center. Gerding is not only an exceptional builder who cares about your project, but they have been long-standing partner with financial and volunteer support! 

Helen Higgins


Boys & Girls Club of Corvallis

Partnering with Gerding Builders on this project was the best decision we could have made! The Gerding team understood what needed to be done with proper phasing and quickly jumped in and started helping me plan and identify and solve problems. They helped with permitting with the city as well as preconstruction feedback on the new building and site designs. They simply got things done.

Matt Hannigan

Construction Project Manager

Les Schwab Corvallis

The entire Gerding Builders project team worked together seamlessly from groundbreaking to the grand opening. They have a high standard and went the extra mile to not only listen but to deliver what they promised every single day.

OMG. We love the building. It is so nice to have something that really works for us and our patients. The building process with the team was really easy. I am very impressed with your organization.

Patrick Rask, MD


Corvallis Pain Management

We threw an amazingly challenging project to Gerding and gave them a short timeline to do so. They completed our project ahead of schedule and it was exceptionally done. We also added significant scope to the project, yet that still didn’t prevent them from meeting our deadlines.

Todd A. Miller


Santiam Canyon School District

Gerding has been a collaborative partner in the building process on several projects with us. They bring an experienced team who work proactively to understand the goals and anticipate the best solutions.
