History

Jarrett Construction Services began in 1999 and since then, the firm has excelled in construction management, design-build and general contracting. Along the way we have developed a solid reputation for providing outstanding service at the highest levels of honesty and integrity. See our reference list for more details.

Early work for our company concentrated in restoration and renovation of historic structures. Jarrett assisted such notables as the Vandalia Heritage Foundation and McCabe Henley Properties in the restoration of grand buildings throughout West Virginia. The 100-year-old B&L Building in Thomas, West Virginia (Tucker County) and Maple Terrace Townhomes in Charleston are fine examples. These successful projects gave Jarrett a strong foundation in historic restoration and lead us to pursue projects such as the Gathering Space Addition to Sacred Heart Co-Cathedral in Charleston, renovation of the historic Prichard House in Huntington, renovation of the Capito Mansion in Charleston and the adaptive reuse and renovation of the Pullen, Fowler, & Flanagan and Northwest Financial buildings in Charleston.

In 2002, the company successfully negotiated with Joe Holland Chevrolet to design and build a new state-of-the-art service center. Jarrett’s team worked with Joey Holland and his staff to plan the building size, configuration, space utilization and layouts. The result was a highly efficient 50-car service and parts center that remains the state’s largest today. Eight months after groundbreaking, the new 50,000 square foot center was complete and operational.

Also, in 2002, Monsignor P. Edward Sadie hired Jarrett to manage the construction of the Gathering Space Addition to Sacred Heart Co-Cathedral. This $3MM + project was the largest and most complex the Parish had taken on in decades. The Jarrett team managed the installation of over 300 tons of limestone, quarried in Boyers, PA, hand carved in Cleveland, sand blasted for aging in Rock Branch, WV and final setting in Charleston. The interior of the gathering space was built to exist in harmony with the existing church sanctuary, and what an achievement it was. The project won statewide awards from both the Architect’s and Contractor’s associations.

By late 2003, Jarrett’s reputation for on-time delivery, economical solutions and integrity beyond reproach had spread throughout West Virginia. It was at this time that Aurora Flight Sciences of Bridgeport came calling. Aurora had previously engaged an architect to perform design services for its new 40,000 square foot light industrial manufacturing facility. When the preliminary estimates put the project significantly over budget, the Bridgeport construction industry, without hesitation, recommended Jarrett Construction. Upon completion of the project, Jarrett saved Aurora over $2,450,000.

Other major projects include:

Most recently, the firm completed a new auto dealership for the Moses family of Charleston; a 32,000 square foot laboratory renovation for Laboratory Corporation of America and two new apartment complexes for Harbinger Development, one located in Ripley and one in Grafton, WV.

Building on its legacy, the future is bright for Jarrett Construction.
