Company History

A.C. Schommer

Andy Schommer established Schommer & Sons in 1937. Located in Portland, Oregon, the company originally specialized in residential new construction and remodeling around the greater metropolitan area. In 1960, the company expanded into commercial and industrial construction as well. Continually pushing innovation, Schommer & Sons achieved a construction industry milestone in 1962 when we were the first company in Oregon to install Trus Joist products; the project was a new elementary school for Portland’s Holy Cross Parish. Now, the company is leading the way with its sustainable initiatives and practices. Schommer & Sons has been constructing office buildings, residences, hospitals, hotels, schools, churches, data centers, warehouses, communications towers and virtually any type of structure located throughout 15 western states. The company’s signature craftsmanship and quality distinguish every project, large or small.

"We work closely with each client to ensure their needs are met and their expectations are exceeded," says Bob Schommer, "(Andy Schommer) wouldn't have it any other way." Growing up in the industry, Andy pushed craftsmanship while constantly challenging his sons to be problem solvers. This way of thinking has become a part of company culture as we currently specialize in building complex structures, maintaining rigorous schedules, working on difficult sites, and pushing innovative technologies.Schommer Family By targeting technically and logistically challenging projects, we showcase our superior service, craft skills, management, and teamwork.
