TW Construction formally known as Therrien Waddell began its incubation in the 1970s. “I had been in the construction business for a few years, and here is this guy fresh out of college on the construction site,” said Donnie Waddell. Young Jerry Therrien proved to be a quick learner, and he and Donnie built mutual respect from the ground up, moving earth and building structures together, and ultimately leading the construction operations of two development companies over the next decades. Since then, Jerry and Donnie have strived to provide high-quality construction services to a wide range of clients.
Values That TW Construction Still Lives By Today
Over the years, Jerry and Donnie built reputations based on honesty and unwavering values. They experienced the integration of leasing requirements, lenders, property management, government regulators, design needs, building efficiency, schedule imperatives, and cost control lessons through a vast variety and scope of projects. The pair quickly understood that there are several moving parts to every construction project and that each stage should be handled with the utmost care.
TW Construction As It’s Known Today Launches In 2005
It all came together in 2005 when Jerry and Donnie opened the doors to their enterprise. Donnie explained the partnership as “a natural path to the next phase in our evolution. Together, we learned the value of viewing the project from different perspectives. We learned the right way to treat people and to execute plans.”
TW Construction Looks Towards The Future
The most important part of history is how it shapes the future. “In 2005, our time had come,” said Jerry. “We had experience, maturity, professional credibility. We built great industry relationships. It was the right time to pull all of the experience and relationships together.” The partners recruited trusted and experienced people from the industry with whom they had history.
Today, many of those people are still part of the business family formed by Jerry and Donnie. Our team now counts more than 30 members, and the average tenure of our employees is 10 years. Our workers also boast a combined 154 years of industry experience and are prepared to tackle almost any construction task.
A Team Known For Its Experience And Prestige
In the decade since TW was formed, the team has been awarded some prestigious honors for a variety of projects. Our expertise has expanded into a broad range of project types, including design-build collaboration, pre-construction planning and design, and sustainable construction, which is designed to improve labor efficiency and use materials more resourcefully, among other things. Although we have grown in breadth and depth, our fundamental values will never change:
- We treat others as we want to be treated (The Golden Rule).
- We look for ways to make every project exceptional, whether it’s through careful planning and design or by going above and beyond meeting the client’s needs.
- We honor our communities through service – we have a longstanding tradition of giving back to our community.
