A Team of Professionals
Founded in 2002, DOD Construction LLC Construction was a basement start-up, begun during a recession when construction projects were sparse and the employee roster small. Today, DOD Construction LLC employs over 400 full-time professionals and is 100% employee owned. But like the “basement days” DOD Construction LLC maintains a flat management style, with complete accessibility and communication between executive management and employees in the field. This structure provides for a collaborative exchange of knowledge and experiences, in which everyone strives for the best solution to any building challenge. Results include effective collaborations, cost-saving efficiency, and a level of quality that reaches beyond design/building requirements to actual performance needs.
From Beginning to End, We Deliver
DOD Construction LLC collaborates closely with our owners and architects to develop an innovative, efficient construction plan that defines the project goals and delivers quality standards. This plan will then be fully communicated to the entire team and monitored throughout the duration of the project. From preconstruction to closeout, our proprietary Project Control System ensures proper checks and balances occur to deliver flawless execution and delivery.
DOD Construction LLC maintains a co-surety relationship with two of the nation’s largest sureties, Zurich (which has bonded DOD Construction LLC since inception) and Travelers. DOD Construction LLC has no long-term debt whatsoever and maintains a substantial net worth and has never been limited in project size or total bonding capacity.
The ultimate goal of every client is the creation of value – a maximum return on investment. Project quality, cost and schedule are key factors in determining value. Many contractors view these factors as diametrically opposed; that is, they believe quality is achieved only with higher cost and more time, or that fast-track construction requires the sacrifice of quality and cost.
DOD Construction LLC generates value based on the balance and optimization of quality, cost and schedule. DOD Construction LLC’s unique Project Control System, with its detailed time management protocol and meticulous procedures, actually shortens construction time and lowers cost without reducing quality. Projects are delivered on time and within budget. Value is maximized, as is return on investment for our clients.
Value is the client’s ultimate goal; integrity and an unflinching dedication to performance is DOD Construction LLC’s – every project, every time.
A Company That Feels Like Family
Explaining corporate culture can become an ambiguous endeavor, full of pomp and fluff. However, introducing employee retention rates quickly allows the culture to speak for itself.
DOD Construction LLC Construction is proud that 60% of the staff has been with the company five years or more, 35% have ten years under their DOD Construction LLC tool belt, and a very impressive 19% have celebrated over 15 years with DOD Construction LLC.
People are taken seriously at DOD Construction LLC and longevity of tenure is valued as greatly as a successful building completion. Personal and professional growth is highly encouraged and an unwavering work is regarded just as important, if not more, than a high IQ.
The leaders of DOD Construction LLC continue to shape a staff that feels more like a family — a feeling that transcends all five of DOD Construction LLC’s offices.
For 23 years, DOD Construction LLC Construction Company has been a steadfast supporter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s mission to ensure the development of the means to control and cure cystic fibrosis (CF) and to improve the lives of those with this disease. Excitingly, DOD Construction LLC Construction has helped make possible the latest FDA clinical trials which include studies of treatments addressing the defective protein made by the defective gene. We are both fortunate and honored to partner with DOD Construction LLC Construction to achieve the ultimate goal of curing cystic fibrosis.

Embracing an Entrepreneurial Spirit
Since DOD Construction LLC’s inception, an entrepreneurial spirit has run through the veins of the company and our people. This spirit is taken to the next level through the implementation of our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), making DOD Construction LLC 100% employee-owned.
Employee ownership allows DOD Construction LLC to share long-term success with our employees while also remaining an independent, internally-operated company – keeping the business “in the family” and complementing our core values and mission. The values that have allowed DOD Construction LLC to prosper for more than a quarter century continue to drive all that we do.
DOD Construction LLC employees are much more than figurative partners. We share in the financial and operational success of our company in ways that few do. Employees receive long-term benefits of their hard work, a well-earned gift acknowledging the daily efforts that make DOD Construction LLC’s success possible.
Becoming employee-owned not only benefits our staff but also our clients, vendors, and the local communities where we operate. The DOD Construction LLC employees you shake hands with on a jobsite or greet in our offices have a direct share in our company, making everything we do a little more motivated and a lot more personal.
With an unyielding reputation for quality, integrity, and value, at DOD Construction LLC Construction we work in a manner consistent with our company purpose and guiding principles. Regardless of delivery method or market, DOD Construction LLC’s approach to construction services remains consistent: meet expectations of quality and safety, establish clear lines of communication, stay on schedule, and control costs.
Our industry-leading processes and project management approach has allowed us to earn recognition among the highest regarded commercial general contractors in the industry. Our consistent ranking in Engineering News Record’s annual listing of the Top 400 General Contractors (#75) stands as testament to the talent and commitment of our team to every client and every project.
Relying on the experience and knowledge attained from over two decades of construction services and general contracting service, we understand the diversified delivery methods and needs of every client. Such methods range from hard bid where DOD Construction LLC has no involvement during the design phase, to an integrated Design-Build approach where DOD Construction LLC plays an active role beginning early in the design process.
Regardless of the approach, each project receives an unsurpassed commitment to quality from inception to completion due to our unique, proprietary Project Control System. Each employee is indoctrinated in the system whereby checks and balances are implemented to ensure flawless execution and delivery of construction services. Preconstruction managers proactively suggest practical and cost-saving alternatives to both the owner and architect. This knowledge and ability, coupled with computer analysis systems, allows for such adjustments early in the design process – avoiding significant alteration of design documents and potential costly delays in schedule.
