Teal Construction Company has been around for 70 years and has kept a steady company size throughout their time. We keep the company size small, but efficient, because we do not want any client, design team or future clients to be lost in the mix as it may happen with some larger construction companies. Teal wants every client to feel as though they are always heard and can contact us at any time.
