Construction is not what we do…it's who we are.


Numerous accolades from customers and partners alike attest to our abilities and serve as our most valued credentials.

Here are some of the most recent:

“I can enthusiastically recommend English to any institution contemplating an expansion or alteration to their physical plant. They are a first-class outfit. English has proven to be a more-than-reliable partner in a number of ways: their estimates are comprehensive and accurate; their scheduling is realistic and on-time; their personnel are easy to work with, experienced, and professional; and the quality of their workmanship is high.”

Hal C. Craddock, AIA President, Craddock Cunningham Architectural Partners (Lynchburg, Va.)

“If I could choose but one construction firm to build every project we have in the future, there would only be one clear choice: English Construction. Doug Dalton and his folks are straighttalking, smart, and honest as the day is long. I have been around construction firms for 40 years, and I have never found one better.”

John E. Jackson, Jr. Lt. Gen., USAF (Ret.) President, Fork Union Military Academy (Fork Union, Va.)

“I truly believe that one of the keys to success is in the team and the people who make up the team. I commend you on the people you put together for this team. They have vision, dedication, and a commitment to quality. This team has set the standard for excellence and has moved things forward with a high degree of professionalism and expertise.”

Cynthia L. Ward, Director, Special Operations Va. Dept. of Transportation

“I consider it a privilege to provide a superior recommendation for English Construction. The company clearly understood our budget. Their superintendent was amazing in his attention to detail. Our owner’s meetings clearly laid out any concerns, and, during the entire process, I never felt uninformed or lacking for complete information.”

Dr. Ronald P. Sykes, Headmaster, The Covenant School (Charlottesville, Va.)

“Randolph-Macon College has utilized the services of English Construction Company for a number of renovation projects, as well as for new building construction. We found the homeoffice management and the fieldassigned personnel to be of very high levels of integrity and competence. We would not hesitate using English for future projects.”

John A. Ahladas, Treasurer and CBO Randolph-Macon College (Ashland, Va.)

“If I ever have another building project, my first call would be to English Construction. I expect their response would make that my only call. They are the best, and I highly recommend them.”

Frank R. Campbell, President Emeritus, Averett University (Danville, Va.)
