Catalyst Construction is a confident, purpose-driven organization founded in 2004. It embodies the conviction and accomplishments of Condoleezza Rice and the accessibility, the winning attitude, and the toughness of Brett Favre. Catalyst is proud of its accomplishments, but always looking to push the envelope to perform better.

Catalyst is grounded and up-to-date but also embodies traditional values. The company is giving and caring, self-made, and proud. While proud, Catalyst is also humble—preferring to have the clients do the talking and get the attention than ‘calling attention to ourselves’.


Our clients are our number one priority. We listen to our clients and respond with workable solutions that are consistent with our client’s project needs. Working with our clients to build their vision is our mission and promise.

Catalyst’s keys to success are comprised of the following factors:

  • Established relationships in the construction and commercial real estate community.
  • Impeccable and unique workmanship.
  • High quality, on-site management.
  • A track record of accurate estimates on pricing and completion dates.
  • Systems in place to effectively track the progress of each construction project to ensure the scope, cost and schedule of each is maintained.
  • Stable, regulated growth.
"Catalyst Construction’s knowledge and experience has contributed to cost savings during the entire course of our project and added to the intrinsic value of our building.

Catalyst’s dedication and attention to detail were particularly impressive, and are responsible for the smoothness in which the work on the building progressed."
