“Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.”
– Mark Twain

Our motto and our mantra, originated with the Mark Twain quote, “Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.” The adage has always been our core ideology and the key to our past and future success. It is a timeless guiding principle on which you can rely.

About Us


Our roots go back to 1959 with the original office opening in St. Louis, Missouri. Regional offices were established throughout the U.S. and in 1987 our office was opened to serve the Greater Washington Metro Area. In 1992 we became independently owned and operated and have provided dedicated and value driven construction services to clients like you ever since. The current owners joined the team shortly after the office’s 1987 opening and purchased the company from its original owner under a succession plan at the end of 2009.
