Conventional Construction


Our Values Make a Difference

We have been in business on the Peninsula since 1973. Within that time, Ritchie-Curbow has committed itself to 

  • Investing extra time, attention, and effort with clients during design to prepare for construction.

  • Developing long-standing relationships with regional compliance officials and local subcontractors.

  • Offering creative building solutions including conventional, pre-engineered, and precast building options.

  • Nurturing valuable partnerships with the best local clients and sub-contractors in the area.

  • Building a team that focuses on wearing the same hat and increasing communication with our crews. 


These principles have made us one of Eastern Virginia’s leading general contractors.
