Mountain Creek is driven by its capable and efficient field operation. Our management team is fully aware of the interdependence of field and administrative operations. We take an approach that the office staff serves the field, so the construction operation can stay in motion to service the client’s needs and meet the project critical path. The nature of our work is often in the toughest part of any site – the low-lying wet area that everyone else seeks to avoid. The cohesive nature of the office staff keeping the field at its most effective level is at the heart of what we do.
