How Was H.S. Williams the Best Construction Company for the Job?

  • Looking to stimulate growth of the Commonwealth’s horse industry, the Virginia Commission of Industry and Agriculture needed a contractor to control the center’s construction schedule and get buildings under roof.
  • Despite building components that required long lead times (and construction throughout the winter) in just six months H.S. Williams had the first building ready to host events.
  • Undeterred by the magnitude and demanding schedule, H.S. Williams helped construct one of the nation’s leading equine exhibition centers: a 600-acre complex that can accommodate over 700 horses.
