Korsmo Construction held our annual All Company Meeting this morning, which looked a bit different than in years past. While this event is typically a breakfast meeting held at an off-site venue, we were able to host an engaging virtual meeting instead. We want to thank small business owner Abdul Coleman from Black Bear Frozen Yogurt in South Tacoma for helping us start the morning off right by delivering coffee and breakfast treats for our office staff to enjoy during the meeting. Please support black-owned businesses in your community. ... See MoreSee Less

Korsmo Construction is honored to receive the 2020 Moss Adams/AGC Build Washington Champion of Diversity Award for the Grant Center for the Expressive Arts! Using a progressive approach and various outreach strategies, Korsmo worked with Tacoma Public Schools and local trade partners to maximize diverse business participation throughout construction of this project. These efforts were not driven by percentages as much as fostering sustainability of our small business partners. We put our focus on the people and the numbers followed. Thank you, AGC of Washington, for this tremendous honor! We share this award with our entire project team, trade partners, Tacoma Public Schools, and the Grant school community. ... See MoreSee Less

Good for you. 👍

I know John Korsmo (he is married to my cousin Lisa). Great guy and a steady and thoughtful leader. All that work with or for him are fortunate to have him in their orbit.

We're excited to see Boze Elementary School's community garden thriving in its new location. Thank you to the Deluna family for taking good care of the plants. We can't wait until students and staff are able to move into their new school. Have a wonderful school year!

Tacoma Public Schools
GROWING COMMUNITIES: In the process of getting a new school, the Boze neighborhood got an updated community garden, too – one nurtured by students, teachers and community members. Thanks to Korsmo Construction, the builder of the new school, the garden was moved to a safer location, updated with planter boxes, water spigots and gravel inside, and boulders and perimeter fencing outside. After starting strong, raised beds planted by Boze kindergarteners began to wilt when COVID-19 hit and students moved to remote learning. Then one student, Alejandra Deluna, asked her mom to help save her classroom’s garden beds. Take a look at their garden story, one of growing a community gathering place and outdoor classroom. #BuildingForAchievement #ThankYouVoters

Thank you, SMR Architects! What a beautiful day we had for our topping off celebration at the YWCA Home at Last project last Monday. This has been a tremendous team and community effort and we are proud of the progress made on this vital new housing facility for YWCA Pierce County!SMR enjoyed attending YWCA Pierce County’s Topping Out Ceremony for the Home at Last project earlier this week. The project team watched as Korsmo Construction placed the last beam atop the development that will be completed in early 2021. (See the video in the comments below.) Home at Last will provide 54 units of permanent housing with 75% units set aside for homeless families, as well as space for an expansion of the YWCA's free counseling program. Built on a former parking lot between the YWCA's shelter facility and its main office, the housing will complete the vision of a holistic campus for the families it serves. #endhomelessness #affordablehousing #YWCAPierceCounty ...
