"I have known Steve Crain professionally for over 20 years, first as a licensed Professional Engineer, then as a general contractor and construction manager for Paradigm Construction. He has been involved in project design, development, and construction, which lends a valuable level of diversity to his understanding of the process‐from acquisition of the site thru turn over to the owner. His background as a licensed P.E. is rare in the construction industry, and thus he views the components of a project from a viability as well as economic impact.
Paradigm has done several projects for our firm, and is currently doing a 9‐unit upscale townhome project in the SOSA District of Oklahoma City, and participating in the construction of a 14‐unit, 70,000 SF $18 million townhome project in the Nichols Hills area. We are also currently in the initial phases of a 12,000 SF medical/Surgical complex in Moore, Oklahoma.
We have found him to be excellent in the pre‐construction phase of planning and budgeting, and an active participant in value engineering discussions when needed. He is aggressive in the bid process, however does not sacrifice quality control as a result. He has a good network of qualified subcontractors for wood, and steel framed buildings, and is adept with both building shell and interior finish construction.
I would highly recommend Mr. Crain, and his company in any discussions you may have regarding selection of a general contractor. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have."

"Steve Crain and his company Paradigm Construction Company did an excellent job on our Corporate Office build-out. His timeliness, professionalism and great eye for details really made it come together quickly. Not to mention the fact they finished about 5-weeks ahead of schedule. We are thrilled with our new office and the experience we had with Paradigm blew us away and we really can't thank you enough!"

“My partners and I used Paradigm Construction Company to totally rehabilitate and build-out a 20,000 sf Historic Building in Automobile Alley. Paradigm has also been in charge of our Building Maintenance. We plan on using Paradigm on future projects and our investment properties. We learned quickly that Steve Crain/Owner and his team are very knowledgeable, responsive and is solution oriented. Steve Crain is a Licensed Professional Engineer (P.E.) and brings rare expertise to our projects that you do not get with a “typical” G.C. We give Paradigm our highest recommendation!”

"It gives me great pleasure to write this recommendation on behalf of Steve Crain & Paradigm Construction Company. Steve was the General Contractor for our 7,000s sq/ft buildout in the Memorial Springs Medical Building. Steve always ensured all aspects of the construction project were running smoothly and at its peak. Steve was a great coordinator and leader, always able to convince everyone to follow his lead. Steve exudes a level of knowledge and expertise that simply inspires trust. What I appreciated most about Steve was his brevity & honesty. Steve was a stickler for the budget as well as following the project schedule, something I was incredibly grateful for. With Steve on site, day-to-day operations were always in good hands. I wholeheartedly believe you could not do better than Steve Crain."
