We serve both the private and public sector, including commercial construction, industrial construction, and educational facility construction.

From individual projects to concerns commonly associated with the building industry, our unique insight has lead us to be one of the best construction service providers available. We believe in upfront and honest communication, enhancing the quality of life of the communities we build in, reducing environmental impact through green building techniques, and as always, providing excellent service.

The core of every relationship must have integrity, respect, honesty, and true, heartfelt commitment. Based on this fundamental belief, Diggs Construction, Inc. was founded in1977 offering general contracting services nationwide for projects of all sizes.

Since its formation, Diggs Construction has always sought to utilize the concept of “system integration” within its management, technical facilities, partners and clients. Thoroughly analyzing each project to determine the right personnel and chemistry needed has been a crucial step that allows Diggs to deliver top quality projects to its clients, on time and within budget from the onset of any project.
