Building Relationships: Our People

Successful construction depends on the people who estimate, manage, and build each project. We hire people who share our values of personal responsibility and hard work, and we strive to keep them here. Longevity is important for building effective working relationships—with suppliers, subcontractors, government officials and clients—on which every job depends. In recent years, we’ve added new positions to ensure that every project receives ample attention as our company grows.
