Interface Construction Corporation is a full-service general contracting and construction management firm that offers a wide variety of preconstruction and construction services tailored to meet specific project needs.
Founded in 1978 by Sam Hutchinson, who remains the company’s CEO, Interface started as a concrete construction company. In 1988, Hutchinson transitioned the company from a subcontractor to a general contractor and construction manager.
While many contractors have become merely brokers of construction services, Interface Construction Corporation are true builders who self-perform as much as one-third of our annual work volume. This craftsmanship results in timely projects of the upmost quality by the best superintendents in the industry. As a Minority Business Enterprise, Interface also delivers true working diversity and celebrates differences on all building sites.
As veterans of safety management, Interface is more focused than rivals, because the safest crew is the most efficient one. Our range of preconstruction and construction services in the healthcare, commercial/retail, education, industrial and government/municipal markets is extensive. Rooted in both new construction and renovation, Interface’s project scope is broad and highly specialized in complex, occupied spaces.
