John Farley, CEO, co-founded Contract Construction in 1984. Upon establishing financial stability, net worth and bonding capacity through negotiated residential and light commercial projects, Contract Construction began bidding public projects in the mid to late 1980’s. In 1994, the Company began to focus on fewer but larger projects to enable more focused project management and continuity within the company’s personnel.
Greg Hughes, President, joined Contract Construction in 1998 and immediately elevated the company’s ability to bid, procure, and manage projects over 15 million dollars.
As the company’s reputation developed, the opportunities for negotiated work (Construction Management At-Risk, Design-Build, and Integrated Project Delivery) broadened while still maintaining the intensity for success in the hard-bid market.
