Hoar Construction is a privately held construction company specializing in commercial, industrial health care, government, multifamily, and retail construction. Founded in 1940 by Friend Reed (F.R.) Hoar and headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, the company is currently ranked as one of the top 100 contractors in the United States. [2] In addition to its Birmingham headquarters, Hoar also has offices in Orlando, Nashville, Houston, Austin, and DC.


The company initially specialized in the construction of churches throughout the Birmingham area. Richard Hoar joined his father's construction business in 1947, and F.R. Hoar and Son was established. [3] After completing construction on 45 churches, F.R. Hoar and Son expanded its focus to include retail, commercial, and industrial projects. The company renamed itself Hoar Construction in 1985. [3] With US$860.4 million in revenue for 2017, Hoar Construction was ranked 11th among Birmingham's largest privately held companies. [4] In 2008, it was named the fifth best place to work in America. [5]
