Who We Are

Company Profile

Nationally ranked. Regionally based. Locally committed.

Fueled by a relentless dedication to excellence for 64 years, W.M. Jordan Company is built to last. Large enough to compete with national firms, we choose to serve clients in Virginia and the Carolinas. We invest in our communities because we call them home.

We continue to withstand the test of time, earning our reputation for dependable, value-based construction services, one client at a time.


Our Philosophy

The Relentless Pursuit of Excellence

Happy employees lead to happy customers. We build more than structures – we build leaders dedicated to doing the right thing. We empower our people by giving them responsibility, authority, and support. We engage in lifelong learning, health and wellness, and advancing innovation. The result? Project teams that do everything they can to put the needs of the customer first.


A brief company history.

W.M. “Bill” Jordan and Bob Lawson began their partnership in 1958 and W.M. Jordan Company was born. They had a very simple business model: separate, but clear responsibilities and mutual trust. Bob ran the job sites and Bill ran the office. Together, they developed a culture of creativity, hard work, fairness, fun, kindness, and above all, respect.

John Lawson took over as President and CEO in 1985, building on the solid foundation Bill and Bob established. W.M. Jordan Company has grown to serve clients in three states from multiple offices. While much has changed over the years, one thing remains the same: Our relentless pursuit of excellence.

Project Partners

We support our industry partners. Together, we shine.

W.M. Jordan Company adds value during design of your project through our pre-construction services. As experts in construction cost, means, and methods, we offer design teams alternative solutions to help maximize your investment.

We promote supplier diversity and fair contracting practices. Long-term relationships with local subcontractors and suppliers help us provide each client with the right team for each project. We encourage small, women-owned, minority and historically underutilized businesses to work with us and guide these firms towards certification, future growth, and success.


The Future Is Now.

W.M. Jordan Company blends the talents and skills of exceptional people with the latest technology, tools, and human innovation. We leverage technology for project collaboration, communication, and quality. The result: a nationally ranked company with a reputation for excellence and value, and a portfolio of buildings that stand the test of time.

With virtual construction tools, we build, analyze and resolve issues in a digital environment before construction begins, saving time and money. Web-based collaboration keeps project data at your fingertips, in real time. Mobile tools add flexibility and adaptability on the jobsite. Laser scanning and total robotic stations improve accuracy and quality. Digital operations & maintenance manuals offer lasting access to your project data, long after the building is complete.

Safety is a Core Value

People are our greatest resource and most valuable asset.

Our safety program is rooted in the belief that when you put people first, success will follow. Everyone has a right and a responsibility to work safely and return home to family. Our Value-Based Safety Program requires worker buy-in and global thinking.

We use a systematic approach to managing health and safety risks through mentoring, training, and progress tracking. The voluntary program engages everyone in the process of identifying, assessing, and controlling risk. We use this approach in all regions, seeking continuous improvement in safe work practices.

Community Commitment

We live where we work and work where we live.

At W.M. Jordan Company, community involvement is a way of life. From professional associations to community boards, we invest time, talent, and treasure in the places we call home. We participate in a variety of philanthropic endeavors that resonate with our employees and add value to our local communities. Learn more about our impact in the community.
