we are people who build people.

Over the course of 80 years, a lot of things change, but the important things stay the same. We take pride in our people, and our people take pride in the work we do.

Shoosmith Construction, Inc. has been in business since the 1940’s, and we are proud to have employed several generations of families. We think the reason our average employee tenure is 19 years is because people feel happy and secure in a job where they are genuinely appreciated.

We’re a locally owned company and the local industry leader in site and industrial construction. We have more than 150 trucks, bulldozers, loaders and backhoes building communities and laying foundations across Virginia and North Carolina. But our equipment isn’t our most important asset – our people are.

When you join our team, we will train you based on your prior experience. We’ll teach you The Shoosmith Way – our code of conduct, safety, and customer care. From then on, you are in control of your career. Hard work and determination mean a lot at Shoosmith, and they will take you a long way.
