We build stuff.

Take a walk around the University of Virginia, stroll the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville, or drive out any country road in Central Virginia, and you're likely to see a Martin Horn project. Apartment buildings, amphitheaters, hospitals, homes, churches, schools, stadiums: We build stuff.

For more than 35 years, we've built a $40 million construction company known for integrity, reliability, and skilled management. When owners have challenging jobs, they call Martin Horn. We believe in this community and enjoy being an active part of it.

Going up now in Central VA

Breakfast is the most important meal of the month

Posted in Community | No Comments

The pace of the construction world is steadily increasing. Texts and emails have replaced faxes, while phone calls and voice mail have supplanted face-to-face discussions. Efficient as it is, electronic communication can be misunderstood by the recipient and wrong information can be transmitted resulting in a loss of real connection. The remedy is not to […]

  • With less than complete drawings and specifications, Martin Horn realized all of the goals, on time and within budget. Your professionalism, flexibility, and honesty, although anonymous to many, earns “a job well done” from all who benefited from your talents.

  • William Lenart, Principal, FTL Design Engineering Studio

    The pressures for a successful completion of the pavilion were tremendous. If it were not for the commitment, extreme dedication, and ingenuity of Martin Horn, I don’t know how we would have accomplished what we did. We have the utmost respect for this firm and its people.

  • I am writing to acknowledge the outstanding efforts and Mike McNulty and the Martin Horn crew. Over the weekend, they began the repairs to the Imaging Center that were caused by the flooding in early July. Their first order of business was to relocate my office and the business office to ensure they were functional when we arrived at work this morning, and then to begin the work in the patient care area with minimal disruption to our operations. When we arrived this morning, everything was in order – even the PCs were hooked up and ready to go. Their commitment to doing their job without impacting our ability to do ours was tremendous, and I wanted to pass along my gratitude.

    I have been involved in many construction projects over the years, where the crews were not at all sensitive to the operations going on around them, and the impact of their insensitivity hindered and challenged our operations. That has certainly not been the case with any aspect of this project, making their work ethic and conduct extremely noteworthy.
