Whiting-Turner Contracting: All About Good Reputation

May 23, 2013

Reputation counts. When you do good work word gets around. When you do bad work word gets around even faster.

Whiting-Turner Contracting was founded by G.W.C. Whiting and LeBaron Turner who were classmates at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The two believed that integrity, engineering talent, and a dedication to their customers would make them stand out from the competition. It certainly has in fact the reputation that this company built has been passing the test of time.  Whiting and Turner founded the company in 1909. It has now been in business for over a century.

The company’s first project involved doing utility and road work at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, D.C. It then went into tunnel construction and bridges.  Today Whiting-Turner Contracting offers construction management, general contracting, and design/build services. It is mainly involved with large commercial, institutional, and infrastructure projects all over the US.

The firm is a major player in retail construction. It is also into biotech cleanrooms, theme parks, historical restorations, senior living residences, educational facilities, stadium and corporate headquarters.

The employee-owned company’s clients have included AT&T and General Motors among others. Having been competent in its projects for over a century has given the company a good reputation to bank on and bring in more business.
