But the foundation of their 100-year-old reputation was made building some of the leading healthcare facilities in the Southeast, dating back to the veterans’ hospital in Tuskegee, Ala. Little could the two men have known that the partnership they formed would be operating 100 years later as one of the Southeast’s premier construction firms with a portfolio expected to top $11 billion in 2015.
Batson-Cook Company was incorporated in 1916 and, in addition to selling building materials, began winning small construction jobs.
In all, Batson-Cook completed what represents in today’s dollars more than $1 billion worth of work during a three-year period, and records indicate that the workforce on these projects exceeded 5,000 people.
