Construction

ConRock Construction LLC is a full service Construction Management and General Contracting company that was formed by the Principals of Rockabill Development, LLC and Parish Property Management, Inc. (PPM) specifically to undertake tenant in place preservation rehab projects.

The genesis for ConRock is due to the scarcity of tenant-in-place construction expertise and the soft skills around executing those renovation plans. The additional synergies of Rockabill’s expertise in financing programs, PPM’s experience renovating religious-owned facilities and both groups’ innate understanding and sensitivity to working with not-for-profit organizations brought the principals together.

ConRock has quickly become a key resource for the Affordable and Supportive Housing community, in particular not-for-profit sponsors for whom the concept of turnkey execution is attractive.
