ABOUT PARKWAY

Parkway Construction was founded in 1981 by John Elmer, whose vision was for Parkway to become the “Customer’s Choice” by delivering excellent projects with excellent people. Parkway has realized this vision by placing the highest priority on staying true to its values of integrity, trust and respect.

Parkway recognized early on that the best way to provide the highest level of service is to develop repeat customers with like type values and vision. Driven by this philosophy, Parkway established strong relationships with customers that desired to have a better experience as they expanded their concepts.  Both Parkway and its customers believe that efficiency and quality come from knowledge gained from finding best practices and repeating successful processes.

Over time, Parkway had the desire and demand to extend its ability to serve customers at a higher level by implementing the power of architecture. In 2008, Greg Klimko joined Parkway as Director of Architecture and established an architectural division to team with construction to focus on design build. Since that time, with in-house resources and a complete set of integrated services, design build projects have come to represent 40% of Parkway’s business.

From an initial focus on restaurant construction, Parkway has expanded into many other market segments, including retail, entertainment, healthcare, hospitality, golf clubhouses and amenity centers, religious facilities and more. Parkway is licensed in 49 states and continues to deliver on John Elmer’s original vision for Parkway Construction.
