About us

COMPANY HISTORY

O’Cain Construction is a family owned business in operation since 1975 and is managed by second generation owner, Michael O’Cain. We’re a quality minded contractor building with excellence for customer satisfaction before, during, and after the construction process, a fact that is reiterated by a strong repeat client base. We strive to earn your business every day.

OUR MISSION

Every day, each member of the O’CAIN team is completely committed to the efficient and consistent delivery of superior services. O’Cain Construction specializes in the construction of commercial buildings for loyal and educated clients who are value focused (quality over price). Our company is well organized with a dedicated team that is committed to deliver a high-quality product while maintaining an unwavering focus on our ethical standards and commitment to the highest level of integrity.

OUR VISION

Our core values: safety, quality, teamwork and professionalism. This core lays the foundation for O’CAIN to achieve our ultimate goal; building our clients’ trust. We believe our employees are our most important asset. Implementing an effective Safety Program benefits our company by protecting our team. The management of O’Cain Construction maintains and controls this program that also includes a drug policy as an aid in improving our workplace and ensuring the safety of all team members. In addition, a safer work history helps keep our worker’s compensation costs down, thereby allowing us to give our clients more competitive labor rates. In addition to our Safety Program, we have developed a comprehensive Quality Control Program beginning with pre-construction and continuing through post-construction. Our projects are built at a level, which exceeds industry standards. Our managers build every project as if it were their own, and will do what is necessary for our clients’ satisfaction.
