Construction Employer in Dallas-Fort Worth

Our people make the difference.

Who we are.

McCownGordon was founded in 1999 on the idea that the industry needed a different kind of construction company—one that puts the client first.

Instead of focusing only on concrete and steel, founders Pat McCown and Brett Gordon joined forces to build a team of go-getters who believed in doing business transparently and who valued building long-term relationships with clients.

Since the beginning, our goal has been to instill in every employee the fundamental values of integrity, performance and relationships. This company culture permeates everything we do here in Dallas-Fort Worth. Our core values are the foundation for everything we do.

Our Values.


Honesty and accountability drive everything we do.

By prioritizing honesty and accountability, trust becomes the bedrock for every interaction. Clients expect it. And we demand it of ourselves.


We hire the best and align goals to deliver high-quality, original solutions.

Our company culture in Dallas-Fort Worth requires we perform our best on every project. This translates to creative solutions and quality work, delivered on time and in budget while adhering to the highest safety standards.


We listen, communicate and connect with openness and transparency.

We work hard to cultivate an integrated environment and offer you a construction process unlike any other. We place the relationship first—it’s why clients continue to come back.
