about our firm

Joseph S. Simmons Construction, Inc. was started April 4, 1985. For over 30 years, we have strived for perfection with our customers’ needs in mind. The majority of our past experience has been in commercial, institutional and industrial construction. We Seek out similar types of projects while continuously challenging our team to improve through innovation and creativity.


Many of our first projects were tenant improvement, and this type of work still makes up a large portion of our volume. These projects include office, retail, schools and food production (meat, bakery, and bottling facilities). We have an exceptional depth of knowledge in new building construction and building additions. Our excellent track record with our previous clients indicates an exceptional attention to detail and concern for their needs. We also have extensive experience with seismic upgrades to existing buildings. This work has included several projects with institutional and commercial owners. The majority of our work is in Western Washington where we work closely with architects and owners to achieve the best possible end result. Most of the projects are mechanical and electrical bidder design. Owners often ask us to hire the architect and co-ordinate the project from inception to completion. We specialize in producing multi-scale projects with challenging schedules, tough conditions and a keen eye for detail. 


Our goal has always been to serve the owner and the architect by providing projects that are well bid, well scheduled and well built. Today, Joseph S. Simmons Construction lives on through its second-generation owners, Chris Simmons and Robin Fawcett. Their combined experiences and understanding of the industry from the ground up has provided the driving force to maintain the Simmons reputation and legacy.
