Letter from Ron Blaj,
the Director of CPC

Welcome to Capital Projects & Construction,

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

Our mission is to design and build a modern, sustainable campus which enhances our students’ learning experience and reinforces the academic mission. To accomplish this, we marshal the services of our own in-house design, project management, and construction alterations staff, as well as numerous consultants and 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 and programming and continues through the design, construction, and start-up phases. Our skilled and vigorous team currently includes 30 Staff, supplemented by 9 Student Workers.

At CPC, we value Safety, Timely and Courteous Service, the Integration of Sustainable Features, Increased Consulting and Contracting Opportunities for MWESB’s, Quality and Accuracy, Improving the Natural and Built Environment, Fiscal Responsibility, and a Positive, Mutually-Supportive Working Environment. Working with very tight budgetary constraints and often with compressed schedules, the dedicated staff at CPC strives to complete projects has not only met but exceeded the expectations of our clients. We celebrate bringing those projects in safely, on-time, under budget, and 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 and provide any feedback on either how the site can be more informative or how we can improve our services.
