Company Profile

Cork-Howard Construction focuses on quality high-end interiors done fast and within budget. The keys to our success are good relationships with clients and subcontractors and a flat management style that lets everyone on our team step up to get the job done. Excellent communication and transparency with clients allows us to be responsive to their needs, and to navigate any complications that arise during the construction process. We strive to ensure that our clients have the peace of mind that their construction project is in good hands.

We move quickly to identify timelines on materials, carefully tracking and coordinating them so that we can be as efficient as possible. We have the resources and experience to solve problems that arise during the construction process and keep projects on schedule. Cork-Howard Construction succeeds because of our skilled and dedicated people. We do a lot of different things fast. Training is a constant. Every employee takes on new challenges and learns from each other all the time. At Cork-Howard, no task is your job or my job. It’s all Cork-Howard’s job.

Cork-Howard Construction Company was founded in Atlanta, Ga. by President Gene Cork in 1995, initially focusing on high-end commercial interiors. We have steadily grown into a versatile general contracting company licensed in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and Tennessee. Cork-Howard specializes in large multi-floor tenant construction, tenant build-outs and renovations, small to mid-size ground-up structures, as well as projects in occupied spaces.

Repeat customers are the lifeblood of our business. Three quarters of our clients have worked with us in the past. When you complete quality construction projects on time and are transparent and honest with clients, people come back to work with you again.
