Orion Construction was awarded the Ben Boeke Ice Arena repair project in December 2021 through the public competitive bid process. The project scope was repair of various lateral structural steel bracing, CMU cracks, and drywall replacement of damage incurred during the Nov 30th 2018 Earthquake in Anchorage.

Notably, the performance demonstrated by Orion Construction to tackle the complexities of the project interfacing with Structural Engineers, Architectural Design, Permitting, and Inspection entities was outstanding. The project was completed in March 2022 both under budget, and much earlier than anticipated. The employees at Orion Construction are cooperative, professional, adaptive, and skillful. Congratulations, on a project well executed.

We have worked with a lot of General Contractors and the caliber of the Orion team is unmatched. They are professional, easy to deal with, do great work and most of all very responsive. They are our first choice in Contractors when looking to get clients set up and they are my first choice for any personal construction projects. Our clients have always been happy as demonstrated by their using Orion Construction on multiple jobs. We've used Orion on commercial jobs big and small, several residential projects, custom tile work and will continue to do so.

This was a complex design build construction project to replace the generator system and the fire alarm system in Ketchikan Federal Building. The contractor was very knowledgeable in the requirements for these projects. The Contractor had the expertise to hire exceptional subcontractors who ere knowledgeable in the requirements of the contract and knowledgeable in working in rural Alaska towns, where supplies are not available, housing is hard to come by, transportation is not reliable, etc. The contractor went above contract requirements to work with the GSA Fire Life Safety SME to complete all requirements for the fire alarm for this 6 story building.

The acceptance of the fire alarm included submittal and approval of drawings, marking of devices, device approval, and testing on site—which lasted for 2 weeks. The Contractor remained professional at all times, completed the project to the satisfaction of the Government, completed contractual requirements in a timely manner. I would highly recommend this contractor for future work.”
