At Agate Construction, we are driven by these principles:

  • Safety – We are accident and injury free on all of our projects for the past several years. Our Company Culture is driven through our commitment to our Corporate Safety Program and our genuine care for everyone that works on our job sites.
  • Our People – Agate’s experienced construction professionals do not just find problems; our team members actively solve them as well. We proactively plan and schedule the work to keep the project safe, on schedule, and within budget.
  • Competitive Fees – Our fee structure is more competitive than other contractors because we are client focused and not project dependent. We believe that by being focused on our customers, we create relationships that are sustainable as opposed to building “one off” projects.
  • Trade Partner Relationships – As a result of how we treat and work alongside our subcontractors, we have a loyal following of “top shelf” trade partners that enjoy doing business with us – “we get the right and competitive proposals” from the subcontracting community.
  • Ownership Involvement – Rick Nichols and Lou Primak play active roles in all operations of the company. They have their skin in the game so to speak and are deeply involved in the company’s goals and daily activities.
