Hoffman provides our employees with a wide range of training and professional development opportunities. We call it “Building Our Builders.”

  • OSHA 30
  • Project Engineer Training
  • Operations Management Development
  • Super Leader Superintendent Development

Our company is stronger when our team members are supported by an inclusive culture. Hoffman works to incorporate diversity throughout our organization with inclusive hiring and retention practices, internship opportunities, and subcontractor recruiting. We also take a leadership role in organizations encouraging women and people of color to pursue construction careers.

Making construction sites more welcoming, especially for female and minority workers and apprentices, is an important part of our efforts to increase diversity on our projects. Hoffman is taking a proactive approach to make our job sites safer and more hospitable with a pilot program, Green Dot for the Trades, in partnership with Oregon Tradeswomen, that helps combat harassment, hazing, and bullying. Hoffman is an Equal Opportunity Employer, and Hoffman job sites are designated discrimination‑free and harassment‑free.

Like the construction cranes and skyscrapers that we’re known for, Hoffman reaches high to support non‑profit and cultural organizations. Backed by the resources of the company, our employees generously give volunteer time and money to arts, literary, sports, social services, and healthcare causes.

Hoffman is also an industry leader in recruiting young people into the construction trades through participation in various mentorship and job training programs for students. As a company, Hoffman actively supports the goals of local community groups by providing specialized construction services and in‑kind contributions for important projects.

I enjoy the freedom and flexibility here, without being micromanaged. We’re given parameters to work within and then we decide how to get from point A to point B. Jose Altamirano Project Engineer
Construction is a great career choice, and I hope more young women who are interested decide to pursue it. My day to day at work is always changing, which keeps it exciting. I think the best part is seeing the completed buildings and getting to know all the people that put so much hard work into building each project. Alison Stanko Project Engineer
The environment here fosters a lot of autonomy that leads to creativity and teamwork. There are no bad questions. We take every idea and embrace it, evaluating its potential. That’s the culture that helps Hoffman be successful. Jason Freeborn HSC Project Director

Career Paths

From recent college graduates to those with decades of experience, Hoffman offers opportunities for construction professionals at every stage of their career.

Field Operations image

Field Operations

Hoffman is known for our safe, efficient, and well-organized jobsites. That reputation starts with our field leadership – Superintendents and Project Engineers – who set the standard for excellence. From site safety and scheduling to solving technical challenges, these professionals are at the heart of the action, working directly with trade supervision and craftworkers to deliver Hoffman projects on time, with world-class quality.

Project Management image

Project Management

Hoffman’s Project Managers are the face of a project: the “buck stops here” people, the folks with ultimate responsibility for execution of the contract. They succeed through integrity and strong leadership; a keen sense of fairness, transparent communication, and trust.

Scheduling & Estimating image

Scheduling & Estimating

How much will it cost? More important, how much should it cost? How do we get best value? Hoffman estimators bring a combination of art and science to provide early, accurate estimates; identifying the cost of each building component, while anticipating market conditions, risk factors and other intangibles to create a “no surprises” budget.

Hoffman’s schedule performance has set new industry standards. Our Schedulers get us there on time, working closely with project teams, especially superintendents, to develop durations and sequencing that save time – and money – and make promised completion dates a reality.

BIM & Virtual Design and Construction image

BIM & Virtual Design and Construction

Over 20 years ago, Hoffman pioneered the use of Building Information Modeling and Virtual Design & Construction applications on projects such as the Frank Gehry-designed MoPOP Museum, an extremely complex structure that was deemed “impossible” to build using conventional methods. Today our staff of experienced coordinators, specialists and technicians use state-of-the-art applications and tools to assist in all phases of preconstruction and construction, helping develop lean workflows using self-perform modeling, 4D and 5D development, scan data, and drone-based photogrammetry.

Safety image

Safety

Planning, training, teamwork, individual vigilance; these are the hallmarks of Hoffman’s safety culture. More than simply policies and procedures, our Get Us There Safe (GUTS) campaign gives equal focus to the human side of the equation, instilling a deep commitment to safety that reaches from management to craftworkers. Our Safety Professionals are on the front lines, working to ensure that our jobsites reflect Hoffman’s safety culture at every level.
