HISTORY

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, his vision still guides – and his values still form the core of our philosophy.
