Our Story

Read More

Founded in 1965, Harkins Builders is an industry leader in providing professional preconstruction and construction management services for clients with negotiated and design-build construction projects. With annual revenues of over $400 million and three locations serving the Mid-Atlantic & Southeast regions, Harkins offers a diversified portfolio of commercial, mixed-use, multifamily, healthcare, student housing, senior living, and military construction expertise. We have extensive experience in renovation and historical renovation projects, and working with federal, state, and local governments.

Throughout our history, Harkins’ approach to negotiated and design-build contracts has been to combine our preconstruction expertise with professional onsite management. Clients in need of solid long-term projections have come to rely on our ability to make preliminary estimates become reality and to maximize quality for the least cost. Clients in need of quality projects delivered on time and within budget appreciate the experience and professionalism of our people. Our project managers and executives have an average tenure of over 22 years with Harkins.

In 2002, majority ownership of the company was passed from J.P. Blase Cooke to the employees of Harkins Builders through the creation of an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). In addition to providing our employees with a significant retirement savings vehicle, this personal stake in the success of our company creates an added inspiration for service excellence and a competitive advantage in our marketplace.

Associated Builders and Contractors has recognized Harkins as a nationally Accredited Quality Contractor for its commitment to safety, training, employee benefits, and community relations. A charter member, Harkins has maintained this accreditation since 1993.
