Crowder Construction Company is a privately owned General Contracting, and Design-Build service provider. Founded in 1947 by O. P. and W.T. Crowder, Crowder Construction Company is headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina.
In 1947, brothers O. P. and W.T. Crowder had everything it took to manage and complete their first project, a church sidewalk. In less than a decade, they developed a team of 40 employees to undertake Crowder's first major highway construction project, a bridge in Charlotte, NC. As the Company grew, O. P. and W.T. moved to larger heavy civil and environmental projects including water and wastewater treatment plants. Crowder expanded its operations in the early 1990s to include mechanical and industrial projects. Crowder opened offices in Apex, North Carolina and Spartanburg, South Carolina, creating two new divisions of operation.
