Peter Metzger

Managing Partner

Peter founded Metzger in 1991 after spending the previous 10 years at a large specialty construction firm as Executive Vice President.  During that time, Peter recognized an opportunity to provide an alternative solution to owners that would improve on certain aspects of the conventional construction delivery model.  His vision would allow finish products to be selected for the right reasons at the right price, in a progressive, collaborative and open book fashion – an owner first delivery approach was born.  Peter has thoughtfully grown the Metzger team by adding talented personnel with varied construction industry backgrounds.  The result has been a vast expansion in the ways in which we service our clients and their projects.

Peter comes from a long line of successful construction industry business owners and entrepreneurs, dating back to the 1890’s.  Peter’s business acumen and savvy have guided Metzger for over twenty-five years.  Peter graduated from Montana State University with a degree in Government and Pre-law.
