Harman Construction is a design-build general contractor made up of about 60 individuals—20 in our Harrisonburg office and warehouse and 40 working in the field. Though our backgrounds and interests differ, you’ll find common themes of family, faith, and pride in our work run strong throughout our company. We come together under the example of our leadership, upholding the Valley tradition of hard work grounded in fairness and integrity. This common ground has led to a steady growth over Harman’s 40-plus year history.

Our collaborative methodology focuses on assembling a team of professionals uniquely qualified to meet the needs of the project. Each team member has been selected because he or she brings experience and skills necessary to meet the project goals and are familiar with working in a collaborative relationship. Our team will meet early on to review all aspects of the project – building envelope, materials, systems, construction sequencing, code issues, etc. This early, face to face sharing of ideas and information is followed by weeks of exchanging data, drawings and research. Clarifications will be requested and received. Choices regarding products and techniques are tested against the precedent and planning set forth in the owner’s priorities of quality and cost-effectiveness. Early coordination allows each team member extra time to review the accuracy of their work and consider alternatives that might deliver better value to the project. We have found collaboration builds relationships and delivers success.
