As this year rolls to a close, we would like to take a moment to say thank you for another prosperous year. No doubt a more challenging year than any of us had hoped, but that is precisely why we should express our thanks. 

In 2021 our projects moved along successfully, new projects were awarded in our favor, and we developed a new division for Government Services. 

Shannon Construction remained busy and continued to push forward. Forward to out-of-state projects, forward to our first government contract, and forward to increased office staff by approximately 30 percent. 

We also celebrated 50 years in business. Every turn of 2021 provided a reason to celebrate. Our partners, clients, and employees laid the groundwork, and we are thankful.  

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving,
The Shannon Construction Leadership Team

Thank You!
Giving Back
When we talk about giving back, Shannon Construction says to count us in!
For several years, Joyce Steinhart (23 years of service with Shannon) has diligently coordinated donations for those less fortunate than ourselves. They include Stockings for Soldiers, Mt Lebanon Methodist Church food pantry, the Walk for Children, and the Foster Love Project. Joyce has continued to encourage the employees of Shannon to give of themselves.

Thank you, Joyce, for both your dedication to the well-being of others and for sharing your passion with Shannon Construction.
Taking a Look Back for Our Anniversary
Ringing in the new year of 2016, Shannon Construction focused more intently on growth and a new business strategy. Richard Amberson joined the Shannon Team in 2016 as Senior Project Manager to help expand sales and operations. With Rich and Ken at the business development helm, Shannon experienced a substantial increase in contract revenue. With more projects came a growing project team. Shannon focused on finding the right people for staff and field, which enabled us to handle multiple large complex projects. Shannon continues to grow based on the strategy developed with input from the entire team.

Shannon has continued to maintain a strong presence throughout western PA and is now in multiple states. Many of Shannon’s most significant and impactful projects occurred between 2016 and 2020. A few of these projects were selected for NAIOP and Master Builders Association awards:

Action to address sound reverberation problems has peaked as an ever increasing number of workers return to their offices for at least part of their working week and the world learns to live with COVID-19.

Staff who work in open-plan offices have long complained about high levels of background noise which can reach uncomfortable levels where large teams occupy...Read More>>>
