R.C. Construction Co., Inc. was founded in 1986 when Charles “Mo” Powers decided to take the general contracting experience he gained working with his brothers and father at their family-owned contracting company, ACS Construction, and expand the client base from strictly Department of Defense contracts to municipal contracts as well. John Powers came from ACS and joined his brother at R.C. in 1991, and over the past 25 years the small family company has grown to produce outcomes and build projects that rival the largest construction corporations. Many of R.C.’s current employees have worked with the company since the first day of operation.
R.C. Construction is currently led by John Powers and his son Heston Powers. The Home Office is located in Greenwood, Mississippi, a community in which John and his brothers grew up, married, and raised their children and grandchildren. John has over 40 years’ experience in vertical construction, water and waste treatment, and concrete paving. Heston has worked for the company since he was a teenager, starting out with the laborers in the field and now serving as vice-president, project manager, and estimator.
R.C. Construction performs a broad range of construction projects including hangars, maintenance facilities, schools, waste treatment facilities, warehouses, and airfield pavements. John, and subsequently R.C., specializes in concrete airfield pavements. John and Heston maintain a very involved and “hands-on” approach to running the company. Both men are extremely involved in the general business administration and day to day field operations.
