There’s no doubt that things are slow in the construction industry, but there are some things being built in Eugene, and now is a great time to do so. This building, at 445 Highway 99N, is being put up by Ken Evans of Evans Building Company, 485-8071.
Ken is building it for Bathcrest, a company known to builders for working magic on damaged tubs. It’s 50′ x 125′ and will house Bathcrest’s operations.
Ken, a Professional Engineer, does anything involving metal buildings, from remodel, to in-fill, to new construction. Prices are surprisingly low. A simple agricultural building may run as low as $16/s.f., and other buildings run from $25-$100/s.f., depending on the complexity. Metal buildings go up quick–you can move in 3 to 6 months after the building permit.
Ken runs the company with his dad Jim, and his brother Russell. While being a small family company, they still do big projects. Some of their buildings have been over 2 acres in size. They’ll build anywhere in Oregon. When you choose Evans Building Company, you’ll always be talking to an Evans.
An interesting thing about Ken is that he owns our very own Eugene Generals Hockey team.
