Letter from Ron Blaj,
the Director of CPC

Welcome to Capital Projects & Construction,

an Office of the Division of Finance & Administration at Portland State University.


Ron BlajOur charge is to design & build a modern, sustainable Campus which enhances our Students’ learning experience & reinforces the academic mission. To accomplish this, we marshal the services of our own In-House Design, Project Management, & Construction Alterations Staff, as well as numerous Consultants & Contractors. We participate in Projects ranging in size from $1,000 to $300,000,000. Our involvement often starts at the earliest stages of Project definition & programming & continues through the design, construction, & start-up phases. Our skilled & vigorous Team currently includes 30 Staff, supplemented by 9 Student Workers.

At CPC, we value Safety, Timely & Courteous Service, the Integration of Sustainable Features, Increased Consulting & Contracting Opportunities for MWESB’s, Quality & Accuracy, Improving the Natural & Built Environment, Fiscal Responsibility, and a Positive, Mutually-Supportive Working Environment. Working with very tight budgetary constraints & often with compressed schedules, the dedicated Staff at CPC strives to complete Projects having not only met, but exceeded the expectations of our Clients. We celebrate bringing those Projects in safely, on-time, under budget, & reflecting high quality.

We are excited about our role in shaping the PSU-of-the-future, while preserving the good things we have today! We invite you to review the information provided about our specific Projects. Please explore our website & provide any feedback on either how the site can be more informative or how we can improve our services.

Thank You,
