John Farley, CEO and co-founder, laid the foundation for Contract Construction in 1984, pioneering a commitment to excellence in construction. Starting with negotiated residential and light commercial projects, the company quickly established financial stability, net worth, and bonding capacity. The mid to late 1980s marked the expansion into bidding on public projects, showcasing Contract Construction’s versatility.
In 1994, recognizing the importance of focused project management, the company shifted its strategy towards fewer but larger projects. This decision aimed at enhancing project continuity and management efficiency within the company’s personnel. The pivotal year of 1998 saw the arrival of Greg Hughes as President, bringing with him a wealth of experience that significantly elevated the company’s capabilities in bidding, procurement, and project management for endeavors exceeding 20 million dollars.
As the company’s reputation flourished, Contract Construction’s horizons broadened, embracing opportunities for negotiated work such as Construction Management At-Risk, Design-Build, and Integrated Project Delivery. This diversification did not dilute the company’s commitment to success in the hard-bid market. Year after year, Contract Construction has demonstrated its prowess in South Carolina, emerging as a trusted partner for some of the South’s most remarkable projects, both large and small. The company’s trajectory reflects not just its growth but a steadfast dedication to delivering quality construction solutions and earning the trust of clients across the region.
