Our founder, Donald Gatewood, saw an opportunity within West Virginia and the regional construction community to develop a premier general construction firm to serve customers, employees and their families, and a developed network of experienced construction partners. Focused on meeting expected growth demands based on projected investments in infrastructure and vertical construction, Don saw the need for a company made up of the best of the best to serve the region. With years of executive experience in business and commercial construction and focusing on policies and commitments to recruit and sustain the best and brightest team available, he has brought together a superior construction team of experienced employees and subcontractors to consistently execute and deliver. The success achieved from day one has been based on the genuine focus on Safety, Quality, and Performance, prioritized in that order – and SQP’s operating standard.
It really is that simple.
