|Whether the project requires general contracting, design/build or construction management, Matthews Construction has the ability to provide our clients with a vast array of services required on their project. We approach each project with our tradition of providing honesty, integrity and a guarantee of quality workmanship by providing hands on contracting from start to finish.

Matthews Construction has extensive experience in assisting the owner and/or design team to provide cost-efficient constructability methods, design recommendations and product selection. Our team’s background coupled with our company track-record gives us the confidence and knowledge to represent all members of each project from design through construction and delivery to our clients.
Matthews Construction prides itself as one of the few remaining general contractors with self-performing capabilities. We employ approximately 50 cement finishers, bricklayers, carpenters, ironworkers and laborers that stay with our company long-term to consistently deliver high-quality projects.
We have found that self-performance offers many benefits to our construction process. Having our own skilled tradesmen allows Matthews Construction to have more control over the quality of work. This also helps effectively manage costs and maintain the scheduled timeline on each project.
Matthews Construction stands by its expression of hands on contracting from start to finish. It is the basis for our reputation of delivering high-quality work with repeat clients.
