Hoffman Construction Company is a privately held construction firm based in Portland in the U.S. state of Oregon. Founded in 1922, it is the largest construction company in Oregon, and the 33rd largest in the United States with $1.8 billion in revenues as of 2014.[3][2][4] Hoffman is also the largest private company in the Portland area.[1]

History[edit]

The company was founded in 1922 by Lee Hawley Hoffman.[5] Eric Hoffman became president of the company in 1956, and became chairman in 1974, with Cecil Drinkward becoming president.[6] After completing an expansion at the Snake River Correctional Institute in Eastern Oregon, the state audited the work on the project in 1999.[7][8] Auditors alleged some over payments, while the company and the Oregon Department of Corrections disputed those allegations.[7][8] Hoffman moved into the Fox Tower in downtown Portland in 2000 after constructing the building, and added a permanent lobby exhibit showcasing the company's history.[9] In 2013, the firm was listed as one of Oregon's most admired companies.[10]
