About Us

Curry Construction, Inc. is a general contracting firm, with the ability to take a project from estimating and design, through project completion. We specialize in troubleshooting, with an in-depth reservoir of expertise in steel erection, process piping, plumbing, carpentry, site utilities, and other full-service construction needs. Because we have a skilled in-house labor workforce, and an extensive asset list, we can react quickly when a customer needs immediate help with a project or solving unexpected service or maintenance issues.

Management Team: The entire management team takes a hands-on approach to each project. The Operations Manager evaluates the equipment and manpower needed for each job site. The Estimating Manager maintains the backlog and controls project budgets and bid deadlines. The Vice President manages operations, estimating and project control to ensure each job is handled with consistency and stays on schedule. This team effort makes it possible to adjust the workflow company-wide, which reduces the need for subcontractors.

Labor Workforce: Curry Construction has its own dedicated training facility, so the crews can be rotated throughout the year, keeping them updated on safety standards. The workforce is offered job site weekly training through safety topics, where discussions provide important reminders regarding workplace safety.

Accounting: The Accounting Department focuses on detailed cost accounting that provides up-to-date job cost information. This keeps projects on track and offers Estimating accurate data for project bidding.

This kind of overall preparedness means that Curry can move onto each job site ready to work, using better time and labor management, with a focus on project completion and budget control.
