Home / About Us
Southern Constructors Inc.
As the most diversified general contractor in East Tennessee, we know our business and we do it right. That’s the philosophy on which our strong reputation was built. Our approach to client centricity is evidenced by countless endorsements from architects, engineers, and owners. With more than three decades of serving the East Tennessee region, the Southern Constructors, Inc. team has the skillset and enthusiasm needed to build your project from the ground up.
Because the projects we pursue are heavily structural, we intentionally employ project managers with degrees in civil engineering. SCI’s team has a wide variety of experience, which allows us to resolve issues with an analytical approach and take on projects that others may deem too complex.
Southern Constructors, Inc. was founded in 1986 as PIKs Contracting. Originally headquartered in two repurposed rail cars outside Knoxville—a box car and a caboose—we’ve since gone through a name change and multiple expansions while remaining locally owned.
Our team has served East Tennessee as a full-service general contractor for over 36 years. We’re proud to have completed numerous projects for local and state municipalities and businesses. Richard Huskey has served as SCI President since 1995 and continues to head the team with respect, integrity, and values-based leadership.
