Shell McElroyShell McElroy Construction’s founders are forging their own path in the Atlanta commercial construction market.
By Jim Harris

Jeff Shell and Billy McElroy have long been on the same page when it comes to the way they look at the construction industry. The two, who first became acquainted while working at a Top 100 Atlanta-area contractor in the 1990s, stayed in touch for several years after Shell left the company in 2007.

A few years ago, Shell was working in a management capacity with another general contractor, while McElroy had risen to the rank of general superintendent at the company where the two once worked together. Each felt it was time for a change in his career.

“We were both in situations where we felt we wanted to focus on the principles on which we were raised  within the industry,” Shell says. “Both of our current employers were good companies, but we wanted to do something on our own. With the country coming out of the recession, the time seemed right.”
