Park Construction

Park Construction Co. has been leading the way in Minnesota for more than 100 years.

Any milestone for a construction company is reason to celebrate, given that the longer a company stays in business, the more that says about its service and strength. But a company that crosses the century mark is deserving of special attention, and that’s the milestone Minnesota’s Park Construction Co. is celebrating this year. What’s even more impressive than the company’s 100 years of operation is the fact that it has remained a family owned and operated contractor for that entire time, and President Jeff Carlson says the company has the diversity and strengths needed to keep it out in front of a crowded marketplace for a long time to come.

E.J. Smith ConstructionE.J. Smith Construction Co. is making its name known throughout Dallas as a quality contractor. 

By Chris Petersen

The name of Emmitt Smith already carries a lot of weight in and around Dallas, having won three Super Bowl rings and entered the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a running back for the city’s beloved Cowboys. But in recent years, Smith’s name has gained notoriety in the construction world as well as one of the principal owners of E.J. Smith Construction Co. LLC. President and CEO Eugene Walker says the company has spent the last several years building a strong reputation in the Dallas construction market along with some high-profile projects throughout the city and surrounding area.

Walker, the majority owner of the company as well as president and CEO, says the company was established in 2010 with Smith as a partner. E.J. Smith Construction started its first project in early 2011, and since then the company has positioned itself in two main sectors of the industry – infrastructure heavy/ highway and civil construction, and commercial building construction.
