how we’re different
in three important ways
Staying Focused on What Matters
Founded in 1965, Harkins has had many years to learn what works and what doesn’t. Through all the lessons, process adjustments, and growth, one thing that has never and will never change is our dedication to the communities we serve.
Be it through building exceptional properties or giving back our time and resources, this shared mindset has been present since Thomas P. Harkins started our company. It’s apparent when you work with our people, and it’s reflected in the many projects we’ve completed. In fact, it’s this dedication that has us living by a set of shared values, whether we’re on the jobsite, in the office, or at a community event.
Being Truly Invested
One of the most tangible differences between Harkins and other industry leaders is that we are 100% employee-owned. Our ESOP program means that every single Harkins employee is an owner of the company. The result is a collective passion for the work we do and an unwavering drive to succeed for our clients.
Believing in the Process
We operate on the belief that focusing on details, quality, safety, and transparency during the entire construction process is absolutely essential. Even if it takes a little more time and effort up front, open communication and attention to detail always pay off in the end. Always.
