Ritchie-Curbow Construction Company, Inc. is celebrating 50 years in the commercial 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 became one of the first construction firms to offer a design/build option. The company formed an alliance with Butler Manufacturing, the premier pre-engineered metal building systems manufacturer, providing new building options for clients. In the early ‘90s, Ritchie-Curbow turned another innovative corner by constructing the first pre-cast parking facility on the Peninsula.

In 2005, Joseph C. Ritchie, Jr., President purchased the company from its founder. Under his leadership, Ritchie-Curbow continues to build high-rise office complexes, sports complexes, parking decks, hotels, churches and many other commercial and industrial facilities in the community.

Ritchie-Curbow Construction Company, Inc.’s first priority is to meet and exceed the expectations of every client. Each step of the way, Ritchie-Curbow works to provide its clients with solutions that deliver the highest quality in construction while conforming to budgetary parameters of each unique project.

Since 1973, Ritchie-Curbow Construction Company, Inc. has successfully built for national, regional, and local clients, with the highest quality construction and unparalleled service. It is this commitment to these principles that has helped Ritchie-Curbow Construction Company, Inc. 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 Construction Company, Inc. is proud of its continued ability to satisfy clients who rely on us time and again to meet their budgets and time frames.
