About EDC

EDC was founded in 1990 with the objective of providing high-quality, client-focused construction management services. Shortly thereafter, EDC was awarded the ongoing development and construction management of a premiere office and research park in southwestern Virginia that now houses over 1 million square feet in more than 25 buildings. Our work there continues today.

That early project award – which launched dozens of structures – proves that our company mantra “Build Well” extends far beyond anything we physically construct. Perhaps more importantly, it underscores our commitment to building long-term relationships. Without fostering solid partnerships with our loyal clientele, we would not have earned 30 years of shared successes. Much of our work is repeat business, more than 60% of which is negotiated – a testament to our clients’ trust in our ability.

Our team members are valued second only to our clients. We are more than 70 people strong, and over 25 employees have ownership stakes in the firm. Our company shareholders include leadership, project managers, superintendents, estimators, and administrative personnel. Pride of ownership drives our desire to focus on our clients’ needs.

EDC has grown to become one of the most respected construction companies in the country, and our geographic reach now covers the entire United States. From our start with office and R&D projects, our portfolio today showcases our diversity of expertise in retail development and redevelopment, grocery, theaters, recreation/wellness, self-storage, mixed use, higher education, senior living, and multi-family. We have put in place over 30 million square feet with an annual project value well in excess of $150 million.

Whether your next project means people will be able to live, work, play, or shop, let EDC show you how we can build well – with you.

EDC's CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY

EDC's charitable mission is
Helping Children in Need

EDC takes corporate social responsibility seriously. In previous years, each company shareholder selected one or more charities that were meaningful to them, and EDC made contributions to those organizations. Last year, EDC thought it would be more beneficial to select three charities, and make larger more significant contributions toward their causes. EDC's executive charitable giving committee researched and selected three awesome charities, and they were chosen again as this year’s recipients.
