Since 1946



We have a long history of commercial development in the Northwest Tennessee area. We have performed site grading and drainage work for stores, restaurants, pharmacies, playgrounds, parking lots, schools, subdivisions, and waterfowl habitat. We have also built industrial ponds and levees complete with liners. We have built good relationships with vendors and subcontractors to handle as much of the project as necessary.

Since the founding of our company, we have been involved in the construction of roads and streets for various state and local governments. We are prequalified for construction with both the Tennessee and Mississippi Departments of Transportation. We perform grading, storm sewer, and base construction as both a prime contractor and a subcontractor. We also pave with tar and chip paving, something we have done since the beginning.

TDOT • Carroll County - US 79 Widening
As the prime contractor, we widened three miles of highway south of McKenzie. The final cost of the contract was just under $16 million and included 200,000 CY of excavation, over 100,000 tons of base, nearly 20,000 feet of storm sewer, over 100 precast concrete structures, box bridges, water, sewer, and electricity relocation, curb and gutter, sidewalks, and asphalt paving. This project was a 2009 Finalist for the TDOT Commissioner’s Top Quality Award for Large Projects and for Partnering, which reflects project management and communication with suppliers, subcontractors, and TDOT personnel.

TDOT • Henry County Medical Center - Hospital Circle Widening
As the prime contractor, we widened and rehabilitated the nearly half-mile street including storm sewer, curb and gutter, base, paving, and construction of a concrete retaining wall.
