Winchester, Va. — “The mood in construction these days is upbeat,” reports Paula Squires, the editor of Virginia Business, in introducing the state’s biggest construction and development firms in the March issue.
Howard Shockey & Sons, Inc. was ranked 11th among the largest general contractor companies in Virginia. The company, with offices in Winchester and Richmond, reported revenues of $153 million last year.
Shockey employs more than 120 full-time employees and is active in a wide range of project sectors including education, healthcare, institutional, civic, and industrial — primarily in Virginia, Maryland, and West Virginia.
“We are pleased to be recognized, and it is certainly an honor to again be listed among the top companies working in the industry,” says Jeff Boehm, President of Howard Shockey & Sons, Inc.
This ranking follows on the heels of two major wins from ENR MidAtlantic’s annual “Best Projects” Awards Competition, which picks top construction projects from Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia. Shockey’s winning projects included:
- Landscape/Urban Design “Best Project” — T. Tyler Potterfield Memorial Bridge (Richmond)
- Health Care “Best Project” — Valley Health Cancer Center (Winchester)
Current Shockey projects include new parking decks at Navy Federal Credit Union, Shenandoah University, and One Loudoun, as well as several new schools in Northern Virginia, and a major expansion of Cedarfield, a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) owned by Pinnacle Living near Richmond.
