On March 17, 1987, our co-founders Sam Alley, Ed DeMoss and Gus Vratsinas started a construction company in a small office in Little Rock, AR with just a few desks, chairs, and phones. VCC Construction was born because they all were deeply committed to building construction projects smarter and better than ever before. Each of the founders brought their years of experience in the industry, along with vision and hard work, to make it happen. Their commitment began to pay off and within a few years VCC already ranked #205 on ENR Top 400 Contractors list. With large scale projects like University of Central Arkansas McAlister Hall, Wolfchase Mall, and several projects for Walmart, our founders established a firm foundation which has enabled us to thrive for 36 years.

We have always said that our employees are by far our greatest asset. Sam Alley set the tone early on, saying “the best workplace is one where fun and success go hand in hand. VCC creates this type of environment by emphasizing a culture of family and teamwork.” Our team-centric approach sets us apart from other construction firms, and we have many people who have been working with the firm for decades. In the last few years our former COO, Bill McPherson, retired, Sam Alley became our Chairman, and Derek Alley became CEO.

VCC’s dedicated team members have voted us as one of Arkansas’ Best Places to Work for 8 years! We thank each and every teammate who has been part of our family over the last 36 years. We could not be where we are today without the hard work and commitment demonstrated by Team VCC.

At VCC, caring goes far beyond just talking about it. It requires action. As a way to give back to the communities where we build, in 2014 we launched our 501(c)(3) non-profit, the VCC Cares Foundation. In the years since, VCC Cares has donated $1.5 million dollars to worthy beneficiaries all across the country. This year, our flagship fundraising event, the VCC Cares Foundation Charity Golf Classic, will be our 8th year raising money to support charities that are special to our communities.

We are humbly grateful for those three men who began VCC Construction 36 years ago today. We are excited for what the next decades have in store!
