A Different Way to Do Construction

We take an organized, process-driven approach, no matter the type and scope of each project. Our team can accurately control budgeting and estimating services with over 20 years in the construction management business and more than 2,000 completed projects.

We ask many questions and encourage open communication, operating from a commitment to vulnerability and transparency. As projects progress, our management team reviews the work to identify potential problems and resolve them quickly. We believe every successful job ends with on-time installations because we know that unnecessary downtime means lost productivity and profits for your business.

At Gordon Highlander, we believe this level of attention to detail and commitment to excellence is primarily why our repeat clients generate more than 80 percent of our ongoing construction management business.

What is a Highlander?

Founder and President Greg Gordon is a third-generation builder. His family originated in the Scottish Highlands with proud, lasting traditions emphasizing honesty, fairness, and trust. Greg has been intentional about instilling the legacy of his family’s values into the culture of Gordon Highlander. Inscribed into the Gordon family crest is the word “bydand,” which means “steadfast.” Historically, the Gordon clan served their crown and country for centuries with unwavering loyalty.

The Gordon Highlander team embodies the spirit of bydand in all that we do. We are:

  • Your advocates, planning and adjusting details so you can focus on what you do best and entrust the day-to-day management of your company’s real estate projects to us
  • Deal-strategists, helping to uncover the potential in any commercial space
  • Deal-analysts, identifying potential issues early, solving problems and building relationships
  • An integral part of our client’s team, structuring win-win opportunities and helping companies stand out
  • Our client’s eyes and ears, ensuring a timely finish of all the tenant’s details and creating predictable results
