Historic Commercial Construction Projects

Commercial Construction Project - Hoover DamNo business has better demonstrated the ideals of adventure, patriotism, daring and creativity than the American commercial construction company. Commercial construction companies have connected our nation's coasts, harnessed the power of mighty rivers, tunneled beneath great cities and touched the skies overhead. Today, you can't enter a building, drive a road, ride a train or subway or even use a manufactured product without experiencing the result of some commercial construction company's efforts. These visionaries have literally paved the way for America's economy and way of life. Every day, commercial contractors all across the country are breaking ground on new structures, expanding and improving roads and bridges and improving our nation's commercial and transportation infrastructure - extending the veins and arteries of commerce, which carry our economy's lifeblood.

The work of commercial construction companies is almost always unheralded. Occasionally, however, a construction project is so monumental in its scope or impact on our society that it captures the world's attention. A selection of those historic construction projects is showcased on this site. These famous projects show the ingenuity, dedication and courage demonstrated by the commercial construction companies that took them from vision to reality. The hardships and dangers the workers faced, the challenges the companies overcame and the new technologies they developed provide a remarkable testimonial to the American construction company and its honorable place in our society's development.
