About us

Since 1986, Metropolitan Contracting Company has been constructing innovative, award-winning projects while building long-term relationships with clients and subcontractors. We provide exceptional service and trustworthy guidance on every job, regardless of the scope of our services, which is why Metropolitan’s name is defined by satisfaction and respect – from concept to completion.

Throughout its history, Metropolitan has been involved with thousands of private-sector projects throughout the U.S.  Our staff has constructed all sizes of retail, restaurant, industrial, hospitality, office and medical facilities from the ground up, and our finish-out division counts among its clients many nationally recognized retailers and real estate organizations.  As a result of this vast experience and our excellent reputation, peers have recognized Metropolitan with dozens of Excellence in Construction and safety awards, including two coveted Eagle Awards, the highest national honor presented by the Associated Builders and Contractors.

Commercial construction in today’s economy requires diligence and attention to detail like never before.  Schedules are often tight, budgets frequently require management finesse, while safety and quality control issues always are at the forefront of concerns.  Metropolitan’s forte is dealing with such particulars.  That’s why our project teams get involved and stay involved fromconcept to completion.  Let Metropolitan leave its mark of excellence on your next project.

"Although there were other very competitive bids for the project, we heard time after time from several former Metropolitan clients that if you wanted the contractor who will deliver the highest quality product on time and within budget, Metropolitan is really the only choice.
