As 2020 begins, BuildPro Expands
BuildPro Concrete was originally launched as the first step in an ambitious plan: to create the Midwest’s largest, best, and most successful specialty construction company. Knowing that as we plan, God laughs, we chose to focus on one trade as the beginning: concrete.
However, the long range strategy has always been to provide a full-service construction company that can perform all the functions that start under the ground to lead to buildings being built. Namely, we would provide earthwork, excavation, piping, asphalt paving, concrete footings, foundations, flatwork, and walls.
All four of these trades interact with each other, and therefore, when one company can do them all, and do them all well, a superior final product is produced.
New Abilities Require A New Name
Obviously, a company that provides multiple services needs a name that reflects that fact, not one that indicates a singular focus, like concrete. Therefore, BuildPro Concrete is now BuildPro STL Construction Inc.
New Company, Experienced Veterans
While BuildPro STL is relatively new as a company (it’s our third year as we write this), the people who work here are anything but. BuildPro STL was founded by industry veterans who believed that a better, more modern, more technologically driven, more progressive approach to the construction industry in St. Louis and beyond was needed.
Construction companies, especially many of those in the Midwest, are mired in old ways of doing things, and old ways of doing business. Many of the established companies are family-owned and operated by second, third, or fourth generation managers.
While we respect and admire what these companies have accomplished, we also see an opportunity to bring some fresh ideas and a competitive spirit to what could be seen as a slow-to-evolve local industry.
Building The Future
With the addition of our Earthworks Division, and the Asphalt Paving Division, BuildPro STL now has a strong and competitive offering of services that make us one of the few companies in the Midwest that can deliver all the ground and site work required for any project.
We are excited about the future. We are excited to help our community and our partners build great things that will move our nation forward to more greatest.
