IV & Claridge Construction is small enough to listen and pay personal attention to our clients’ quality standards, schedules, and budgets, but large enough to offer the range of services needed to deliver your project. Our skilled team takes pride in guiding a project from conception to successful completion. IV & Claridge Construction partners with clients from the very beginning to listen to their needs and develop a clear and shared vision for a project. This interactive approach ensures quality workmanship and attention to detail every step of the way and a finished structure you can be proud of.


General Contracting

As the general contractor, we first create the highest level of trust and integrity with our clients. We value our role in the success of your project, and take all the steps needed to ensure the end product is one that meets your needs and makes us proud. As your general contractor, we provide all materials, labor, equipment and services; subcontract with trade and specialty contractors; assist with building permits; monitor schedule and cost; and ensure a safe and secure project site.


Trust is the underlying pillar for design-build projects. When trust is developed and fostered between the owner, contractor, architect, and engineer, a remarkable synergy is developed which translates to successful projects and satisfied clients.

More and more clients are selecting the design-build process for their capital projects, turning the tables on low-cost contractor selection in favor of the best value, history of engineer and contractor relations, and the team’s ability to function collaboratively. Embracing the design-build philosophy has proven to increase opportunities for innovation while providing the potential to shorten the overall project schedule — a win-win situation for all members of the team.

Construction Management

Our construction management philosophy focuses on developing an interactive, inclusive working relationship among the client, the design firms, and the construction team. We begin the management process immediately upon award and remain your partner until the project is complete and fully operational and all team members are satisfied.

Self-Perform Work

IV & Claridge Construction has always been a self-perform contractor and has one of the most highly trained and experienced craft workforces in the industry. We believe in self-performing key scopes of work because it allows our project team to be proactive rather than reactive. Our team sets the standard for the pace and quality of work and is able to better anticipate and resolve potential construction issues.
