Co-op Program

In 1997 Golden Construction was founded with Geoff Golden’s entrepreneurial spirit and a deep belief in humility. Geoff had a vision of a construction company that treated its people with respect and dignity while providing a place for personal growth and enrichment. This culture created an environment that cultivated ideas to allow Golden Construction to provide superior building solutions for a variety of markets and construction types.

So from the beginning it has been about people. 1997 to 2008, the company experienced significant growth. We did work throughout the Southeast on many relevant projects in very diverse segments. Whether it was Historical Adaptive reuse projects or Entertainment projects such as the Birmingham Children’s Zoo project or High-rise Multifamily Condominium projects we developed a great reputation for producing high-quality, complex projects.While doing this work we also built strong, long standing relationships with Owners, Architects and Subcontractors. So we must have CLIENTS = Owners/Architects/Engineers/Subcontractors/Employees.

In late summer of 2008 the US construction market would see the first signs of what would eventually turn into the largest and fastest reduction of put in place construction in history. This changed the environment overnight and in our view, forever. In 2009 our team looked inwardly to discover, why we were here and where we were going and how we were going to get there. What we found was our team shared six core values, Humility, Innovation, Commitment, Communication, Unity and Respect. We established a shared purpose for the company. “Building People, Revolutionizing the Construction Process.” Simply stated, our employees are passionate about Building Buildings, Building People and developing processes that will change the construction industry.

“Open communication within the Golden team is central to our operational philosophy. We value the suggestions, opinions and ideas from every single person within our organization. This level of communication is essential in maintaining the integrity of our six core principles and ensures our success. These principles are what makes every one of our projects… Golden.”

The amount of waste and quantity of duplicitous and divisive silos in the A/E/C industries is unsustainable. Our devotion to our purpose has allowed us to develop The Golden Production System. This operating system provides standardized work processes, which remove waste and break down silos that have hampered production in the construction industry for decades. In addition to this process we utilize integrated project delivery methods and modular pre-assembled components in our projects. This is the future of building.

We sit here today poised for tremendous growth throughout the southeastern United States. We focus our efforts on High Density Multifamily, Medical, Hospitality, and Renovation. We have significant relationships with National Multifamily/Student Housing Developers, Regional Healthcare Developers and National Hospitality Developers. In addition we have a significant presence in Birmingham, Alabama having built some of the most prominent buildings in the city.
