Our commercial and industrial construction projects range from design and construction of new facilities and the upgrading of existing facilities to client expectations. GE Hughes has a team of highly skilled and trained tradesmen. This gives the company the capability to in-house every step of the design and construct process and ultimately to ensure that we as a company maintain our quality of workmanship.
Hughes Construction own & operate a majority of their own equipment from concrete boom pumps and slewing tele-handlers to excavators and bobcats which allows us to have great control over projects.
