ABOUT THE COMPANY:
Established in 1984, RUSH Construction, Inc. is an employee-owned general contractor, design builder, and construction manager. President William Chivers and Medical/Commercial Group Director Al Forbes are proud to be a part of this Central Florida contractor that will be celebrating its 30th anniversary next spring.
While historically focusing on projects for the federal government, changes in the economy inspired RUSH to become more diversified, pursing opportunities in the medical and commercial fields. Forbes was brought on board to lend his expertise to this expansion.
RUSH is honored to have built some landmark facilities for organizations including NASA, the Department of Defense, Parrish Medical Center, the American Police Hall of Fame & Museum, Barn Light Electric Company, Ron Norris Honda and the Central Florida YMCA.
“Key factors that have contributed to our success are our integrity, the quality of our people, our employee-owned structure, and our commitment to providing the best customer service possible,” Chivers said. “Over 90 percent of our contracts are with repeat clients that know the value of RUSH’s expertise.”
With an impressive 12-year safety record and with over two million man-hours worked without a lost-time accident, RUSH has been the recipient of numerous prestigious safety awards. RUSH was also recently named a Certified Green Contractor by Associated Builders and Contractors, making them the second contractor headquartered in Florida to receive this prestigious distinction. u
