What We Do

"We build stuff." What once started as a funny tagline has become our true mantra. Whether it's a state-of-the-art medical facility, an affordable housing complex, a stadium, a concert hall, or a Class-A office building--we've built it. We love building challenging projects that improve the lives of our community members.

Who We Are

We're a tight-knit group of hard-working professionals united by our shared values. We're proud to have worked on some of Charlottesville's most-beloved landmarks, including UVA's Scott Stadium and the Ting Music Pavilion.

Do the Right Thing

Construction projects may be complicated, but our philosophy is simple. We treat our customers, trade partners, and employees with respect. We speak honestly and openly. We give our customers everything they need and nothing they don't. That's the Martin Horn way, and it's served us well for over 40 years.

ICRA work within an active healthcare institution is extremely difficult and the team you led did an excellent job with the pre-planning aspects, which led to a successful implementation of the different ICRA measures and aspects required by Skanska and UVA. Additionally, the areas where Martin Horn was required to install ICRA were in some of the highest risk populations (specific examples are working within the level 5 east behavioral health unit and level 7 NICU), which only further complicates the scope and requirements. However, this did not stop the Martin Horn team from excelling and completing the scope in these areas successfully and without incident. Martin Horn was one of our best-performing ICRA partners on the entire hospital expansion project and Skanska recommends Martin Horn for any future ICRA work either at UVA or any other healthcare facility in the region.
