ABOUT BRANCH CIVIL
BUILDING LEGACIES FOR A THRIVING FUTURE
Branch Civil roots itself in a longstanding tradition of serving the transportation and infrastructural needs between and within communities throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast United States. The company’s history of planting, cultivating, and growing transparent, professional relationships with its clients has established Branch Civil as a respected name within the civil construction industry of our regions.
Branch Civil offers a dynamic range of services, including heavy civil construction, design-build, and site development. In addition to Branch Civil, The Branch Group includes Branch Builds, providing professional construction expertise to both the public and private sector, G.J. Hopkins, an electrical and mechanical contractor headquartered in Roanoke, Virginia, and L.A. Lacy a mechanical and plumbing contractor headquartered in Charlottesville, Virginia.
TAKING OWNERSHIP OF THE COMPANY
Functioning as a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Branch Group, our firm serves clients in Virginia, West Virginia, and the Carolinas. Branch Civil operates under an Employee Stock Ownership Plan, and is a 100% employee-owned company. This ownership model has produced a culture where each employee has a vested interest in the successful completion of every project and absolute satisfaction for every client. As we continue to cultivate a thriving work atmosphere, we continue to grow.
WHAT WE DO
The foundation that all construction projects are built upon. As a leader in site development, we have built many of the largest and most challenging projects in the region.
Heavy / Highway Construction
We have successfully delivered large civil projects for the North Carolina and Virginia Departments of Transportation and public and private sector clients.
With Design-Build, Branch Civil becomes responsible for both the design and construction phases of a project. This saves time and money, while eliminating risk for clients.
Branch Civil’s award-winning corporate and project specific safety programs meet and often exceed OSHA requirements. Supported by project safety evaluations, incident/near miss investigations, and OSHA staff instructors, these programs distinguish Branch Civil from other companies. Years of conducting annual comprehensive project safety inspections inform our full-time Director of Safety & Risk and his staff of safety professionals understanding of the necessary precautions and procedures for maintaining a secure work environment.
Branch Civil’s proactive approach toward safety underscores its commitment to operate all projects efficiently and securely in compliance with all applicable safety, health, and environmental regulations.
