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.
