About Us

Our History

Our company began in 1979 as a contractor to the largely commercial markets of Maryland and Washington, DC. We continuously grew in both reputation and size until we became the comprehensive general contracting services of Porter Construction. With constant attention to detail and client satisfaction, the legacy of Porter Construction is now an almost 40-year-long dedication to making construction projects in the commercial, educational, automotive, retail, corporate, and government spaces a success for all involved.

Over the years, our commitment to delivering excellence and value has only grown stronger, as have our knowledge, experience, and expertise of all things related to the craftsmanship and integrity of the construction industry.

Structure and Philosophy

As a family business that has grown exponentially as a result of referrals by pleased clients, we know from experience how important clear communication is to heading off problems and keeping building projects on time and on budget.

That’s why we assemble some of the best teams in the commercial construction industry that look at every project as though it were their own building. By involving all essential personnel early on and in a consistent manner, we’re better able to avoid delays and costly overruns. And it is this sense of committed teamwork that allows us to continually build great relationships—as well as outstanding structures.

Our philosophy—developed over three generations of dedicated work in the construction industry—is to focus on the client first. We exceed client expectations by delivering quality, integrity, and true craftsmanship. From our very inception, Porter Construction has nurtured and encouraged this philosophy in all our field, management, and administrative personnel.
