IMC Construction Inc. has grown to become a leading general contractor and construction manager on the national building scene because it understands that construction isn’t just about building structures, it’s about building relationships and keeping them. The company was founded in 1975 by Chairman Emeritus Tom Williams and his father, Buck Williams. What started as a small contracting business with three or four employees working out of a small, residential-style office has grown to 70 employees working out of IMC’s 25,0000-square-foot, LEED Gold-certified headquarters in Malvern, Pa.

Since its 1999 founding as an environmental consultancy, Hudspeth and Associates Inc. (H&A) has developed its portfolio through a balance of organic growth and entrepreneurial risk. Seeing a field flooded with too many teachers and not enough doers, Robert Levitt, the company’s co-founder, transitioned it away from consulting. Now the company comprises three interrelated divisions: abatement and demolition, environmental remediation and, since 2006, general contracting. 

After 109 years, Harold O’Shea Builders has not only built construction projects, but also strong relationships with its clients, CEO Mike O’Shea says. “It is the center of our strategic plan,” he says. “O’Shea is a differentiator when it comes to building lasting relationships.” Based in Springfield, Ill., O’Shea Builders specializes in general contracting, remodeling and renovations, and civil services. O’Shea’s great-grandfather, John O’Shea, founded the company in 1901 as a homebuilder. “He built one or two homes at a time,” Mike O’Shea says.

For nearly 80 years, Culpepper Con­struction has not only remained true to the markets in which it excels, but it has also strategically grown its reach to offer the array of construction services its customers demand. As a result, the Talla­hassee, Fla.-based company has developed a reputation for high-quality, reliable work performed throughout the southeastern United States.

When your name is Samson, people expect you to do all the heavy lifting. That certainly is true of Samson Electric Inc. As an example, in 1986, Samson Electric installed the electrical systems for a hotel run by Princess Tours in Denali National Park, where Denali or Mt. McKinley – the tall­est mountain in North America – is located.

Reliable Builders Inc. (RBI) was est­ab­lished in 1977 by Jong K. Kim, CEO and president, to rebuild residential homes in Guam after the island was ravaged by Super Typhoon Pamela in 1976. Begin­ning with one backhoe, one truck and two employees, the firm completed nearly 65 homes within its first seven years in operation.

Fargo Pacific Inc. (FPI) was established in 1975, and, although it has endured a few lean years, it has maintained a steady stream of construction work throughout its home on Guam since its inception. The past few years, in fact, have been especially fruitful for the general contractor, which puts it in a good position as the U.S. military begins to redeploy thousands of Marines and their families to Guam from Okinawa, Japan.

Although Dennis’ 7 Dees celebrates its 55th anniversary in 2011, its experience in the business dates back much further, back to 1927 when grandparents Bernard and Florence Esch launched a one-person lawn mowing business, and later lived their dream by owning a wholesale rhododendron nursery.  In 1956, their daughter Merle met Robert Snodgrass.
