Over the past 30 years, Haydon Building Corp. has grown into one of the largest general contractors in the Southwest, doubling its revenue during a global pandemic. The Phoenix-based firm is one of only a few contractors in Arizona that provides turnkey solutions for commercial building, heavy civil, landscape and virtual construction services.
Haydon grew from about $150 million in revenue in 2017 to nearly $300 million in 2020, the result of a diverse portfolio that includes municipal, health care, education, parks and recreation, mission critical, industrial, heavy civil and water and wastewater projects.
Working for SDB Contracting, Gary Haydon founded its building division in 1991. The division became its own company in 1998 as Haydon Building Corp. when it also expanded to add a heavy civil division. In 2006, the contractor added Earthscapes, a full-service landscape subsidiary, to its lineup.
