John ÒùÐ¦½ºþ, an Italian immigrant, founded J.S. ÒùÐ¦½ºþ Construction Co. in St. Louis, Missouri.
ÒùÐ¦½ºþ made its first equipment purchase, trading a horse and buggy for a truck. Later that decade, ÒùÐ¦½ºþ purchased its first crane. To this day, ÒùÐ¦½ºþ maintains a robust fleet of equipment to bring value to our clients.
ÒùÐ¦½ºþ built experience in diverse markets, working on multiple industrial, manufacturing, and school projects.
ÒùÐ¦½ºþ entered the automotive market working for Chrysler and General Motors and also entered the water/wastewater market.
ÒùÐ¦½ºþ began fabricating structural steel as the result of frustrations with the steel supplier. On the scheduled due date, the steel for a project did not arrive. Unable to wait without compromising the clientâ€™s deadline, ÒùÐ¦½ºþ fabricated the steel by hand in its own warehouse. Ultimately, the project was completed five days ahead of schedule, and ÒùÐ¦½ºþ established itself as a steel fabricator.
ÒùÐ¦½ºþ constructed some of the first U.S. interstate highways in the early 1960s. Later that decade, ÒùÐ¦½ºþ entered the healthcare and energy markets.
ÒùÐ¦½ºþ hired its first employee dedicated to safety and, as a result, experienced a 35 percent decrease in accidents.
ÒùÐ¦½ºþ completed its first marine construction project, Lock and Dam 26 on the Mississippi River.
ÒùÐ¦½ºþ opened an office in Detroit to expand its work in the automotive market.
ÒùÐ¦½ºþ completed multiple landmark projects in the St. Louis area, including the Saint Louis Science Center, Edward Jones Dome, and Scottrade Center.
ÒùÐ¦½ºþ acquired RYCO, a longtime Canadian joint venture partner on automotive projects. This led to the establishment of our Canadian entity, ÒùÐ¦½ºþ Constructors, Ltd.
ÒùÐ¦½ºþ built its LEED Platinum corporate headquarters in St. Louis, converting a 50-year-old manufacturing facility into a model of sustainable design and construction.
ÒùÐ¦½ºþ acquired CAS Constructors, expanding its water/wastewater expertise and geographic reach.
ÒùÐ¦½ºþ acquired Flintco, a major commercial contractor with offices in the Southwest and Great Plains regions of the United States.
Celebrating its 100th anniversary, ÒùÐ¦½ºþ continues to provide unflinching dependability to a variety of industrial and commercial markets throughout North America.
