30 Years of Building Excellence

Our Story

Building Excellence Since 1991

Fred Nichols founded our organization in 1991 based on the simple promise – “to do what we say we are going to do, when we say we will do it.” Formed as a true, general construction firm, he saw a void in the construction industry for self-performing general contractors. Since, 1991, Nichols has strived to be a highly sought after, design build contractor in commercial, institutional, and government sectors in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern regions. Utilizing the Master Builder Approach, the Nichols team demonstrates knowledge, professionalism, experience, and commitment, taking full accountability for all aspects of our work. Today, we are a team of more than 125 hard working men and women committed to safely serving our clients and communities. Together, we are building better.

For over 30 years, the Nichols Team has remained an industry leader by embracing the Master Builder approach on each of our projects. By creating an environment where our employees are encouraged to learn and grow, the knowledge of our team grows. This results in a successful project and successful partnership with our clients.
