From its first commercial construction contract, Haskell has been breaking new ground in the Architectural, Engineering and Construction (AEC) world to create the greatest possible value for project owners. Design-build project delivery didn’t exist as a discipline in 1967, when The Preston H. Haskell Company contracted to build a 53,160-square-foot manufacturing plant for Covington Industries. Haskell’s newly formed team broke the mold, however, by producing the entire project, from concept to commissioning.

 The idea was simple and elegant. A design-build contractor could act as a single point of contact – and a single party accountable to the project owner – providing clients certainty of outcome in budget, schedule and performance. Preston Haskell was an early proponent and became a leading evangelist for the design-build delivery method, which now accounts for more than 40 percent of all construction spending in the United States.

 In the more than five decades since, Haskell has shortened its name but grown in myriad ways.

 Driven by its innovative spirit and a relentless pursuit of optimal customer service, Haskell continued to lead the industry in adopting new project delivery methods. Its unique Permanent Craft Employee (PCE) program staffed crews that pioneered tilt-wall construction for greater efficiency. Its leadership team leveraged organic growth and acquisition to assemble the process, packaging and material handling expertise to put Haskell on the cutting edge of the turnkey Engineer Procure Construct (EPC) method of delivering solutions for manufacturing customers. And today, through Dysruptek, its innovation-focused venture capital arm, Haskell is scouting, piloting and investing in emerging technologies that stretch the status quo to provide clients with the greatest possible competitive advantage.
