About Bob Moore Construction, Inc.

Company history

An early steel building by Bob Moore Construction - completed in budget, on time.August, 1946: The temperature soared into the nineties as a blistering Texas Panhandle sun burned down on the curved metal roof of the quonset hut. Bob Moore and his crew tightened the last screw, rolled up the remaining tools and officially completed the first Bob Moore Construction project . . . in budget, on time.

With that simple Quonset hut began a legacy that has spanned six decades, extended from coast to coast, and includes a billion dollars worth of high quality construction projects for some of the best known companies in the United States.

The first quonset hut led to another project for Bob, and another after that. Soon, his business grew from grain storage buildings to office/showrooms all over North Texas. Over the years Bob expanded his company's capabilities into increasingly larger and more complex projects, into the world of industrial, retail and office buildings.

Building through the years

As Bob Moore Construction expanded in the 1960s, son Mike officially joined the company. Although he had grown up around the family business and knew it well, he started as a member of the construction crew. "Learn it from the ground up, learn it right," Bob told his son, "and always finish the job on budget, on time!"

In the late 1960s and into the 1970s Bob Moore Construction made rapid improvements and substantially grew their business. They became the largest representative in the United States for A & S Building Systems, a respected steel building manufacturer. Bob recognized early on that tilt-up construction was becoming the preferred construction process for large buildings and moved their business in that direction. In the late 1970s they became a builder for Butler Buildings and quickly became one of Butler’s largest volume builders in the entire Southwest region of the United States.

By the end of the 1970s, the company had outgrown its Grand Prairie location. In 1982, Bob Moore Construction broke ground on its dramatic new corporate office in Arlington, the cross center of Dallas/Fort Worth, and another growth era was born.

During these years Bob Moore Construction added more industry leaders to their organization, such as Jim Peeples from A & S Building Systems, Danny Butler (who would later own Butler Construction) and Phillip Bell, the former National Sales Manager for Atlantic Steel.

These dynamic individuals came together to move the company into a new level of capabilities, perfecting the techniques for tilt-up construction that has become the preferred method for building warehouses and distribution centers today. During the 1980s Bob Moore Construction recruited Jay Hedges from Butler Manufacturing and started Pyramid Building Systems of Fort Worth. This new company fullfilled the role of handling smaller projects, allowing Bob Moore Construction to focus on larger buildings.

In the 1980s the company gave up its Butler franchise to concentrate on large conventional buildings that utilized single ply and built-up roofs. The change in focus reflected the company's growth, moving to ever larger and more dramatic capabilities, and permitted Bob Moore Construction to cross the threshold into projects larger than 500,000 square feet.

In 1986, Mike Moore was named President of the company. In 1997, Mike assumed the role as Chief Executive Officer for the company, and Phillip Bell moved into the position as President. Ed McGuire, Vice President of Construction, was named a partner in the company in 2004, and is preparing for his Presidency in the future.
