WHO WE ARE
The CEI philosophy is simple: Gain the confidence of our clients with honesty and performance and with a partnership attitude. This allows us to grow our business by repeat customers and referrals. At CEI we believe that we can better serve our clients and our sector of the construction industry by specializing in one small segment of the entire market. By limiting our efforts to mainly housing, we have been successful in building and training a staff of professionals as well as a large array of specialized subcontractors and suppliers. With this force of professionals assembled since 1977, we are in a unique position to assist our clients in all aspects of the housing industry. Due to our many years of experience in market rate, mid-rise, HUD, nursing, assisted living, retirement, affordable and student housing, we can offer our clients valuable assistance beginning with design development and continuing through construction.
Our operating philosophy at CEI is based upon honesty, performance, and top management's involvement with each job. This personal attention and partnership attitude has enabled us to create a strong base of long-termed clients. To meet the fast pace of multi-family projects, CEI employs only trained, specialized superintendents and project managers with deep experience in housing. Each member of our team contributes their invaluable talents and skill, resulting in the on-going success of CEI.

IN MEMORY OF SHELBY SHAFER – CEI PRESIDENT 2004-2011
His Philosophy helped mold us into the company we are today, and we are more than ever committed to continue his legacy. In the Summer of 2011 CEI suffered the loss of a very special man, Shelby Shafer, to a tragic boating accident. For those of you who knew Shelby, you would agree that he was “bigger than life”. For those who never had the privilege to meet him, you missed a special treat. Rarely did you see him without a smile. He had an inner intuitiveness when it came to construction; and our clients can attest to the fact that no one knew the industry better. He, along with his mentor and partner Bill Landers, built CEI into one of the premier multi-family construction firms across the country. His can-do attitude and positive approach is what helped our company exceed the $130 million mark for annual revenues. Shelby left behind a strong Team who will follow his lead and make him proud. Bill and our CEI crew are more committed than ever to ensure that the relationships we have, and the new ones we create, will benefit greatly from the legacy Shelby left behind. He would expect us to do no less!
