CORE Construction Announces New Vice President and Celebrates New Project Developments


Travis Coombs, VP of Pre-Construction/CORE Construction.

Leading national construction management firm executes plans for staff and project expansion

The firm announced the promotion of Travis Coombs to Vice President of their Northern Nevada operations. Since entering the construction industry in 2001, he has established trusting relationships with design partners, building partners and clients. Coombs joined CORE in 2013 and has served in several departments. In his new role, he will now lead business strategy and development Northern Nevada.

“I am thrilled to serve Northern Nevada and oversee vital projects that benefit my community,” Coombs said. “My promotion to Vice President will allow me to continue to cultivate the values and culture within the company that have established CORE as a respected local and national builder.”

Alongside Coombs’ promotion, Director of Pre-Construction Michael Keller relocated from CORE Construction’s Las Vegas office to its Reno office earlier this year to support the firm’s strategic vision for the future and expand its influence in the Northern Nevada community. Prior to working for CORE, Keller served as an Owners Representative and Construction/Program Manager for a variety of public sector clients lending him a unique perspective to his role as Director of Pre-Construction.

CORE Construction is also leading the development of the Pennington College of Engineering Building at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) and a new Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles location in south Reno. Previous successful building projects across Northern Nevada include the Douglas County Community and Senior Center, UNR Pennington Student Achievement Center, UNR Great Basin Residence Hall, Starbucks’ largest global distribution center, Sky Ranch Middle School and Desert Skies Middle School.
