Who We Are

DAVID Construction, Inc. is a team of highly-skilled professionals comprised of engineers, architects and talented crafts people. We have earned a solid reputation for supplying creative solutions to difficult construction projects.

Built on decades of experience and a strong foundation of success, the strength of DAVID is apparent in our client successes. Part of what makes DAVID unique is our ability to self-perform a diverse array of specialized construction work elements. Because of our ability to self-perform so much work, we have fewer scheduling conflicts and greater control over cost and quality than other construction companies…resulting in a lower bottom line cost and a shorter construction schedule. Coupled with our strong professional team, DAVID clients will quickly see and benefit from the DAVID difference.

Our History

Founded in 1979 by David B. Holobaugh, Jr., DAVID Construction, Inc. has garnered numerous awards and has earned a reputation for providing superior general contracting, construction management, and design/build services throughout the region.

DAVID is built on a proud family history and a foundation of partnership. David Holobaugh, Jr. sought to gather a team of individuals that were as committed to quality and creativity as he was. Kenny Catlett was DAVID’s first hire and someone who shared the common vision of customer excellence. Subsequently, Dave & Kenny established fundamental systems and building blocks that are still utilized today. Several years later, Dave trained and mentored his son, David Holobaugh, III following David’s college education in civil engineering in 1987. David subsequently bought DAVID from his father in 1998, and his father has since retired from the construction industry.

Bringing DAVID into the next generation, David has married the traditional foundation of the company with the newest technology the industry has to offer. Also expanding into a larger geographical area, DAVID is now able to better serve its community while maintaining the original characteristics that made it the company that it is today.


DAVID Construction employs a staff of highly skilled management professionals capable of supplying creative solutions to difficult problems.  In addition to employing highly skilled management professionals, we also employ a varied and diverse set of skilled field personnel.
