History[edit]

Founded in Birmingham, Alabama, the company initially specialized in the construction of churches throughout the Birmingham area.[4] R.N. Hoar joined his father's construction business in 1947, and F.R. Hoar and Son was established.[5] After completing construction on 45 churches, F.R. Hoar and Son expanded its focus to include commercial and industrial projects. The company renamed itself Hoar Construction in 1985.[5] With US$537 million in revenue for 2007, Hoar Construction was ranked 12th among Birmingham's 100 largest companies; in 2008, it was named the fifth best place to work in America.[6][7]
