In 1910, Edward “Pop” Elford, a civil engineer, decided that the best way to promote integrity in the construction industry was to start his own company. With $153.75 in savings, he founded E. Elford General Contractors. Trustworthiness, open communication, and continual learning were the values upon which Elford was built and remain our guiding principles today. Over a century later, Pop’s values still form and guide the core of our philosophy.
