Our History


What began as a regional Texas water/wastewater pipeline construction contractor has grown into one of the largest construction companies in North America. Throughout Southland Holdings‘ history, we have built roads that connect our Nation, constructed pipelines to carry water across vast regions, and bored tunnels through some of the world’s most challenging geology. We build great things that shape our landscape and create solutions for future generations. We do this with integrity, never compromising our ethics and putting the safety and wellbeing of our employees and owner partners first.

Today, Southland Holdings proudly combines the strengths of five companies and has become one of the largest, most diversified industry leaders in heavy civil construction. As a privately held organization, Southland is active in 38 U.S. states and three provinces in Canada.  Our companies have successfully constructed over 4,000 projects, $34 billion in total revenue with more than 3,000 dedicated full-time employees. 

The Southland Holdings family of companies are innovators in construction technology, bringing solutions to challenging construction projects worldwide. With five specialty companies, Southland Holdings provides the unique solutions needed in today’s complex construction environment.

Today, Southland Holdings is managed by people who don’t just have our companies on their resume, but in their blood. The next generation of several of our founders builds on their success and provides unwavering clarity and continuity of purpose.

We are active in 42 U.S. states and two provinces in Canada, and have completed projects in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Nigeria. We have successfully executed more than $9 billion dollars of work, growing to more than 2,000 dedicated full-time employees.
