Shockey Ranked 8th Largest General Contractor in Virginia

WINCHESTER, VIRGINIA — In the March issue of Virginia Business, editor Kate Andrews notes that construction companies are busy across the Commonwealth. “As several economic development officials have noted wryly over the past year, the construction crane appears to be Virginia’s new state bird,” says Andrews.

The Big Book, also known as the Economic Development issue, is an expanded Virginia Business magazine (published annually on March 1) that ranks the state’s largest public and private companies.

The annual issue is dedicated to exploring how Virginia’s economy has performed across several key sectors, including economic development, ports and shipping, construction and commercial real estate, accounting, law, banking and finance, insurance, hotels and more.

Among all the companies that participated in the general contractor survey, Shockey ranked number 8 with $255 million in total revenues and $211 million in billings in Virginia.

Shockey primarily serves clients in the education, healthcare, senior living, commercial, parking, manufacturing and industrial markets.

The company has seen strong results from its ongoing expansion into the Northern Virginia and Richmond markets. Shockey recently appointed Jon Cadle as Senior Vice President of Operations, and is actively hiring top talent for key market sectors across the state.
