We Exist to Serve by Shaping Futures
This is the core of who we are, and the defined purpose of our organization. Our purpose stands proudly in contrast to many “standard” mission statements in our industry, because it revolves around those we serve, not ourselves. Our purpose statement does not mention the term “construction.” This is because we view our purpose as greater than just the services we offer (building buildings); it is to positively impact the lives of those around us, which is much greater than just building great buildings.
Ultimately when our clients choose to hire us, they do so because they know they have an organization who is dedicated to shaping futures first; and will step outside of the traditional roles to serve and do whatever it takes to accomplish team goals.
PassionBringing enthusiasm and emotional drive to our work and life.
CommitmentA covenant to fulfill what we promise.
QualityA high degree of excellence in all that we accomplish.
BalancePlacing an importance on a high quality of life.
IntegrityOur core values and actions are always congruent.

At Tilden-Coil we are not just a team of builders, our company purpose (described above) is to serve by shaping futures. This means in addition to serving our clients, we must also serve our communities and those who are less fortunate. We have several ways of engaging the communities in which we work including:
Tilden-Coil is involved in many community projects through donating time, resources and talent to achieve special projects such as: The Grove: Homeless Housing Project, the Loma Linda 9/11 Memorial, the Cesar Chavez Memorial and many more.
Through public-private partnerships we have achieved many great things. Perhaps the largest impact we have contributed to was the founding of the Starting Blocks learn to swim program; a partnership between Tilden-Coil, Riverside Unified School District and Riverside Community College District. It all started upon the completion of the Riverside Aquatic Complex, by Tilden-Coil in 2011. The program was conceived by the founding partners in order to achieve the following goals relating to underprivileged students: 1) provide free swim lessons to students for water-safety 2) provide students the opportunity to visit a college campus and gain exposure to water sports and 3) to promote a healthy lifestyle.
The first summer program took place in 2011 and has continued every summer since. Today, the program has served over 6,000 students throughout Riverside.
We love getting students of all ages excited about engineering and construction. Tilden-Coil has contributed to developing and teaching multiple educational programs at the university level. These educational programs include construction management, building information modeling and sustainability in construction. We also add value to high school students through internships, mentoring programs, and inspire them through immersive learning environments during construction.
Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
In 2009 one of our own team members was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, a blood cancer. Our Tilden-Coil family immediately kicked into support mode for our family member in need. One of the ways we were able to support as a group was to form a walk team for The Leukemia & Lymphoma's Society's Light the Night Walk. That first year, we set a fundraising goal of $10,000. We had just three months to raise our funds. We knew this was a lofty goal, but we felt we could achieve it. Well, achieve it we did...and then some. In 2009, Tilden-Coil Constructors raised over $36,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Our efforts didn't stop there, in fact, they were just beginning. We followed up our flagship year with an even stronger effort and $60,500 raised in the fight against blood cancer!
To date, Tilden-Coil Constructors has raised over $540,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. If you would like to help us meet our annual fundraising goal please visit our fundraising page here.
Tilden Coil CARES is a non-profit organization created by our Global Greater Good (G3) Committee. This committee is made up of a wide variety of Tilden-Coil team members and even outside partners who share the passion to “enrich and improve the quality of life to those in need within our community.” Every year our G3 Committee is responsible for raising funds, and graciously donate their time and talents to various organizations and causes such as: The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Riverside Educational Enrichment Foundation (REEF), World Vision, breast cancer, blood drives, school backpacks, food drives, Christmas families and many more. Every team member at Tilden-Coil has the opportunity to become a champion for the specific cause that they are most passionate about, and our G3 Committee serves as the vehicle to make it happen.

Our staff is mindful of how various aspects of construction must interface with the “green” building process and how even the smallest efforts make a difference in the environment.
We also have experience implementing energy projects including:
- Solar structures
- Wind turbines
