We build relationships, not just roads. For more than
three decades, in hundreds of projects, Shirley has
forged lasting relationships with clients, developers,
general contractors, and subcontractors throughout
the eastern United States. Whatever our role—
whether as general contractor or as part of a larger

toward the common goal of quality.
This spirit of cooperation extends to the community
as well. Our record of careful planning, sound management,
safe worksites, and on-time performance shows respect
for the natural environment while minimizing traffic
disruption and other inconveniences for the communities
where we work. Shirley builds its relationships -
like its projects - to last.

we have always empowered our workforce to make decisions,
seize the responsibility for customer satisfaction,
and grow personally and professionally. Our training
programs have won numerous awards, and our focus on
customer satisfaction never waivers.
Shirley's people have always been the source of its

Value engineering and innovation fuel Shirley's success.
Strong cooperative relationships and team thinking
breed innovation. At Shirley, "value engineering"
means creativeness in action. Collaborating with developers,
subcontractors, and government authorities, we consistently
conceive of new ways to reduce costs, speed up completion,
and improve quality.
More than three decades of experience. Since 1974,
Shirley has been marshalling the expertise and resources

a full gamut of services, from concept through construction,
from securing financing to preconstruction, and from
design-build to project management. What's more, with
over a quarter century of experience in Heavy and
Highway construction, we know the regulations and
requirements of state, city, county, and local transportation
and highway authorities.
Shirley Contracting Company has earned a reputation
unequalled in the industry. How? By respecting our
people, our communities, and our clients.
