Howard Building Corporation community


In 2015, the three owners of HBC sold the company to the employees. By working with an employee-owned company, our clients know the entire HBC team is wholly dedicated to the success of every project.

Our finest moment is when Gary [Conrad], Paul [McGunnigle], and I decided to sell the company to the employees. After all, the employees are what makes HBC the success it is today.


By honoring the unique attributes, cultures, and experiences that our HBC family has to offer, all of us at HBC benefit. We have made great strides in attracting and retaining a diverse workforce, but we still have much to do. As a leader in our industry, we feel it is our responsibility to be the example of what an entirely inclusive construction team looks like. With a firm grasp on where we are today, and a clear roadmap to where we want to be, HBC will continue to cultivate a workforce that accurately represents the communities where we work and live.
