Our Background

Morris-Shea was founded in 1969 as a heavy civil construction contractor focusing on interstate and highway bridgework. Throughout the course of the 1980’s and 1990’s, we evolved our business, concentrating our efforts on deep foundation engineering, design and construction. Today, we are one of the leading deep foundation contractors in the industry.



Morris-Shea has developed an industry-leading safety program for our projects. The program is proactive in its efforts to create a “safe culture” for everyone in the company from top management personnel to project-level tradesmen. Safety is always of paramount concern in any heavy civil construction project, and Morris-Shea is committed to a safe and healthy workplace for all. We believe that safety does not happen by chance, but rather through careful planning, training and support; with the oversite from knowledgeable management. Morris-Shea’s Safety Director is a member of national committees involved with the negotiated rule making for OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) and ASSE (American Society of Safety Engineers). In Addition, he is a certified OSHA outreach instructor for the construction industry. Among deep foundation contractors, we are recognized for our focus on safety.

The efforts and commitment of Morris-Shea’s employees in safety have resulted in being recognized by many in the Southeast as a leader in safety and preferred employer by the workforce. Additionally, Morris-Shea has a written Substance Abuse Policy in place for all employees, which has helped eliminate drugs and alcohol from the workplace. Morris-Shea takes pride in being 100% drug-free.

Doing so requires that countless hours of time and a high level of commitment be spent to ensure that this goal is achieved.
