At the age of 53 and after more than 31 years at the helm of another leading international construction organization, John A. Caddell founded Caddell Construction in 1983—initially working from his family home. Caddell has since grown into a major construction operation headquartered in Montgomery, Alabama, with projects worldwide. Today, Caddell Construction is one of the most respected general contractors in the nation with more than $8.3 billion in current and completed projects and multiple national awards from construction industry peers.
Milestone Caddell projects have included the U.S. Embassy in Beijing; renovations to the Denver Mint; Terminals A & C at Houston’s George Bush International Airport; three unique advanced technology facilities for the Spallation Neutron Source Program at Oak Ridge National Laboratory; the Power & Desalination plant at Ascension Island; the “Patton” Command & Control Headquarters Complex at Shaw AFB; and one of Caddell’s most ambitious projects to date—the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan.
In 2013, after 30 years of consistent growth and profitability, Caddell began the transition from a family-owned to a select employee-owned company. Today, Caddell moves confidently forward into the new century equipped with some of the industry’s best construction professionals and building technology.
“We are proud of what our team has accomplished, but we are far from finished. I am as excited about our prospects now as at any time in our history. I believe that those same principles of quality, excellence, and integrity that built this company will guide us successfully in the future.” John Caddell.
