Alex Jansen, President, Jansen Construction Company

Alex Jansen


"The projects we pursue are those we believe we can add value to."

Alex Jansen became a general contractor in 1996. He has built hotels for several major brands as well as commercial, retail, and medical projects. While growing his company from a small business to a highly regarded builder in several states, Alex has taken on many roles. "I've worked on just about every level of a project," says Alex, "whether pushing a broom, being the on-site supervisor or project manager, I've done it all." It is this wide range of experience that has taught Alex the value of professionalism and respect. "I have found that the best projects are those where people understand their responsibilities and the expectations are clear. It gives everyone a chance to step up and be part of the project's success."

Alex has been involved in the construction and hospitality industry most of his life. Even before beginning his professional career working in construction financing after graduating from the University of Oregon, Alex was involved in the hospitality industry. "My parents owned a small motel in Southern Oregon so I learned a lot about the challenges and rewards of the hospitality industry from an early age."

Looking forward, Alex sees a bright future for Jansen Construction Company. "We know what we are good at and only bid projects that we truly believe that we can offer clients the best value. We have a terrific team of core employees and sub-contractors that have worked together for years and understand their role in making projects successful," says Alex.
