About Us

Our Projects are Built for Success – On a Reputation for Quality Construction.

Ritchie-Curbow Construction Company, Inc. is celebrating 40 years in the building industry! The company was founded in 1973 when Joseph C. Ritchie paired his background in general contracting with Gary D. Curbow’s expertise in construction and civil engineering. The firm grew steadily, expanding its scope of work and building solutions.

In 1974, Ritchie-Curbow was one of the first construction firms to offer a design/build option. Our company formed an alliance with Butler Manufacturing, the premier pre-engineered metal building systems manufacturer, providing new building options for clients. And in the early ‘90s, Ritchie-Curbow turned another innovative corner by constructing the first pre-cast parking facility on the Peninsula.

Today the company is headed by Joseph C. Ritchie, Jr., President; Carl M. Beale, Vice President of Operations and Gene W. Wilson, Vice President of Preconstruction. In 2005, these three principals purchased the company from its founder. Under their leadership, Ritchie-Curbow Construction continues to build high-rise office complexes, sports complexes, parking decks, hotels, churches and many other commercial and industrial facilities in our community.

Ritchie-Curbow Construction Company, Inc.’s first priority is to meet and exceed the expectations of every client. Each step of the way we work to provide our clients solutions that deliver the highest quality in construction while conforming to the project’s budget parameters.

Since 1973, Ritchie-Curbow Construction Company, Inc. has successfully built for national, regional, and local clients, with the highest quality construction and unequaled service. It is our commitment to these principles that has helped us become one of eastern Virginia’s leading general contractors.

In the construction industry, a common indicator of performance is the level of repeat business. That’s why Ritchie-Curbow is proud of its continued ability to satisfy clients who rely on us time and again to meet their budgets and time frames.
