Blue Pine Construction Corp: Your Vision. Their Mission.
In 2017 Blaise Hilton, Jay Tallon, Jennifer Miranda, and Enrique Isas came together with over 30 years of multifamily experience to form Blue Pine Construction Corp (BPCC). Hitting the ground running, their first project was a 94-unit build in Thornton, Colorado.
In addition to ground up, BPCC specializes in exterior renovations. They are a go-to general contractor for balcony re-enforcements, roofing, painting, windows, amenity conversions, and asphalt. In their work you might come across an outdoor weather-resistant ping pong table, an adult swing set next to a cozy fireplace, upgraded carports to handle Seattle’s new snow loads or interior build-outs for work / live residents.
Relationships are Key
Blue Pine isn’t a one and done company. They value the relationships they have with ownership groups, property management groups, construction management groups, and insurance adjusters. With this approach, they focus directly on the client needs by learning what the client likes.
“We do quality work at good prices,” says Jennifer Miranda, Blue Pine’s Director of Business Development and Partner.
Blue Pine is new to the WMFHA family, thanks to their relationship with Dana Nichols, Director of Construction at ConAm. They operate nationwide with a niche for exterior renovations on apartments ranging from 100 units or more. Primarily they excel at sprucing (or should we say pining) up B and C properties.
Treating Properties as if They Were Their Own
Have you heard of Fiberon? Jennifer shared that it is an awesome way to upgrade the exterior railings of an apartment community. They take an old and tired railing and cover it with Fiberon cladding to make it look nice and modern. It’s quick, easy, and it makes a huge difference for a property. With the wet weather in the Pacific Northwest, they do a lot of these projects in Washington.
Blue Pine prides itself not only on the beautiful work it produces but on its fantastic team. Most of their team members have 15 or more years of multifamily experience with a diverse background of specialties. They employ an ex-Air Force Airman of the Year, many war vets, and folks who came from big corporations. With a smaller team that is highly engaged face to face with its clients, Blue Pine’s leaders are literally and figuratively building a force to be reckoned with. With a consolidation of talents and experience at Blue Pine, they ensure mutual success in maximizing your investment.
Multifamily Managers Take Heed!
Jennifer’s construction advice for multifamily managers is to be ahead of the game and not to defer maintenance. When you see something that is likely to fail, put it in the next year’s budget. Look around, if you need exterior renovations, give Blue Pine a call for quality craftsmanship and cost-effective strategies.
