As a Client, when you choose Northstar, our staff will be dedicated to becoming your best advocate through the design and construction process. We are an independent, objective, third party resource without contractual ties to anyone except the Client.

Our mission is to guide Clients through Successful Construction Projects. In fact, all Northstar projects have been completed on time and within budget, and have met or exceeded Owners' expectations for facility use and function. We become a part of the Owner's team to understand needs and objectives, and then lead the project team by demonstrating effective communication, attention to detail, and a culture of collaboration.

We specialize in managing a variety of project types, including healthcare, educational, commercial/public and infrastructure (mechanical and electrical systems) facilities.

Whether we are assisting Clients with one service, such as move management, or providing a full scope of project management services, our focus is to facilitate timely and informed decisions, identify risks, control costs and ensure smooth scheduling.


We see projects from the Owner's perspective, because we've been in the Owner's shoes. In fact, all of our senior staff have worked as project managers in an Owner organization. Recognizing the need for this role in the marketplace, healthcare facility experts Ken Kadel and Ken Cates founded Northstar Management Company in 1998, with a mission to help Owner organizations realize the best facility solutions possible with the greatest long-term value.
