Metal framing at Children’s Hospital Odessa Brown Clinic with Absher Construction

Our experienced foreman and skilled carpenters come to each job with a full understanding of floor plans and elevation to construct detailed floor and wall layouts. With a deep understanding of how specific tools make framing projects more efficient, our team consistently delivers timely and excellent work. Through the use of aviation snips, swivel head electric shears, magnetic level and lasers, screw guns, chop saws, clamps, and power and powder-actuated tools to fasten concrete and steel beams, Ahora delivers on its promise to deliver a quality finished product.

An exceptional finishing job is essential for a perfect paint job. Our skilled drywall finishers seal joints, repair cracks, smooth out any imperfections on walls or ceilings and can deliver level one through five drywall finishing levels. Using state of the art equipment we shorten install time, promote safe practices and ensure a quality product in preparation for painting.

We have built a strong relationship with our paint supplier to ensure our clients are happy with the color and finish of our paint jobs. First sanding, scraping and removing any old paint, our experienced painters prepare walls and other surfaces for painting before applying coats of paint. This paint is blended to achieve the perfect color and texture. We use paint sprayers, rollers and brushes to paint surfaces evenly and achieve a professional aesthetic.


  • Ahora has successfully performed and is currently performing the framing, drywall, and ceilings packages for the phased seismic improvements at the University of Washington. We were introduced to Ahora at a NAMC event and were excited to have them bid and be successfully awarded the first phase of the project as well as participate in Clark’s Strategic Partnership Program. Ahora’s commitment to project goals and teamwork is my favorite part of working with them; they are willing to roll their sleeves up, explore options to mitigate project challenges and do what it takes to get the job done with us.

  • We worked with Ahora Construction at the UW Seismic Improvement Project Phase 1 and Phase 2. Ahora’s team is efficient, proactive, easy to work with and always ready to creatively solve problems. Performing framing, drywall and ceiling install scopes of work in existing buildings comes with it’s own challenges, which they were able to surpass. They have worked through hoops and bounds to deliver work that met the tight schedule and quality standards. We loved to work with this dynamic team and look forward to working with them on many more projects.

  • Ahora enthusiastically hit the ground running, setting the tone for the project. Jimmy Jr. and his team have been communicative, responsive and thorough in their understanding of the highly detailed work they are performing onsite. Our Ahora crew has sustained zero recordable injuries over 1,000 hours worked onsite, is in full compliance with our safety and COVID protocols, and keeps a clean and professional working area. So far we’ve enjoyed working with the Ahora team and look forward to the next several months of partnership on this project.
