Since 1905, Richard White Sons, Inc. (RWS) has left an indelible impression on construction in the Boston area. Starting from a simple masonry and homebuilding business, Richard White built a contracting business that has grown throughout the decades to a firm that today is recognized as an expert in commercial, cultural, historic, higher education, and healthcare construction. From Goodwill Industries corporate headquarters to City Hall Plaza’s Pedestrian Arcade, look around Boston and many of our projects still stand as a testament to our professionalism and skill.
Flexibility, innovation, effectiveness, and quality have been the hallmark of Richard White Sons’ services for generations. In 1931, Richard White Sons incorporated in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Corporate offices and an equipment maintenance facility were built in West Newton, MA. Under the management of the founder's three sons, Edmond H. White, Richard J. White, and William F. White, the firm became involved in larger commercial projects and public works including infrastructure projects, bridge erection, and road construction.
In 1951, Edmond H. White, Jr., joined the firm and expanded business in the private sector building schools, churches, corporate office buildings, manufacturing operations, and financial institutions.
Now in our fourth generation, with Donald E. White serving as Chief Executive Officer and President, we are able to build upon our 100 years of construction experience as we continue to provide our clients with unparalleled service in a tradition of building challenging projects of exceptional quality.
