Columbia Public Schools

Paxton Keeley's construction contractor

PCE has built a solid relationship with Columbia Public Schools, completing several projects with a dedicated commitment to construction excellence and on-time delivery. The relationship began in 1989 with an addition to the Columbia Career Center and continues today with the construction of Columbias newest elementary school – Alpha Hart Elementary School. Some of the other notable projects during this time are Paxton Keeley Elementary School and Lange Middle School.


“PCE Partnering made our administration and office staff an integral part of the process. Small issues were addressed immediately, and that eliminated larger problems. PCE Partnering was beneficial to everyone involved.”
– Carol Kennedy, Principal, Lange Middle School

“Lange Middle School was a large, complex project with a tight completion deadline. The PCE Partnering Process made a significant difference for everyone involved. I highly recommend PCE Partnering.”
– Dennis Walker, Architect, Hoener Associates, Inc.

In 2000, PCE began construction on Columbia’s newest elementary school. The focus of PCE’s work continues to be commitment to construction excellence from start to finish.

We knew from the outset that undertaking a major addition, renovation and remodel to our 100+ year old sorority house, and doing it all while still having residents live-in, would not be an easy task. Fortunately, our choice to partner with PCE and Project Manager, Andy Bonderer, has been one of the best decisions we have made. We interviewed other contractors for the job, and they certainly tried to convince us that they were the preferred builder for Greek housing. But ultimately, it came down to finding a construction partner who would work with us to manage the unique complexities of the job and be just as invested in achieving an exceptional outcome as we were. Andy, Matt, and the whole PCE project team have been terrific. When we plan future construction projects, we would certainly seek out a partnership with PCE first.

PCE has been not only responsive and attentive, but proactive in anticipating issues with our project.

I trust that Andy, Matt and PCE have the owner’s best interest in mind as they work with the other professionals on our construction project.

PCE has kept me, a project manager located in another city, updated and informed – getting my input and opinion on decisions when necessary and making my job easier by presenting clear explanations and alternatives when we are faced with an issue.
