Local Business Spotlight: Anderson Construction
For more than 50 years, and three generations, Anderson Construction has prided itself on exceeding the expectations of its clients.
Since 1982, Anderson Construction has completed nearly 1,400 projects, with many being vital parts of the daily routine of the Eufaula community.
“We are commercial contractor - banks, schools, hospitals, retail – and do pretty much the whole gambit,” said Trey Anderson, president of Anderson Construction. “We are also involved in operation and maintenance contracts for the federal government and currently maintain Lake Seminole, Lake Eufaula and Carter’s Lake in the north Georgia mountains. The service side of our business comprises about 60-70 percent of our workforce, and the rest is in construction.”
The facility contracts with the federal government see Anderson Construction manage most of the daily operations of each facility.
“On the properties we do facility maintenance, heating and cooling, landscaping, grass mowing, janitorial, natural resource management, treatment of weeds in the lake and some navigational work for channel markers,” Anderson said. “Each contract is a little different due to the needs of each facility, but we maintain the day-to-day operations of each.”
The company, started by Anderson’s grandfather, in 1964 dabbled in marine construction originally and evolved in to different arears throughout the years.
Anderson Construction built the Bank South facility in Dothan, the new Abbeville High School, handled the remodel of Lakepoint Resort State Park and a firing range at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, along with hundreds of projects in the last 50-plus years.
“For the last bit of time, a lot of our work has been in the K-12 and post-secondary education realm,” said Anderson. “We recently completed a nice $16 million facility at Wallace Community College that they are getting operational. We have also done a lot of the campus upgrades for the Eufaula City Schools, most recently the career center and the sports complex for the high school.”
Anderson Construction can handle any commercial project from start-to-finish. If you have a vision for your new facility, Anderson and staff can make it a reality.
“If a person can dream it, we can design it and build it. We prefer a design-build-delivery system. We have strategic partnerships with architectural firms and do the preliminary drawings. We can take them through the design development, construction and get them a facility.”
Trey Anderson is the third of his family to run the company, and takes pride in continuing the legacy of quality production. With 50 years down, and more to come, Anderson sees no issue with the company being able to continue to exceed expectations of clients for years to come.
“Generational transitions are complicated,” Anderson said. “Transfer of power, company ownership and authority all change hands. We have been through two already, and have a game plan in place. If it comes to it, we will go to 75 years and another generation.”
