Founded in 1981 by Joe Savage, Metro Construction has been building throughout the Memphis area for over 35 years. In its early days, Metro was an interior specialties company, but with a key “breakout” job in the late 80’s (the remodeling of The Ridgeway Inn) new opportunities were discovered. Once in the role of General Contractor, Metro launched into various commercial projects of all shapes and sizes across the Mid-South, and has not slowed down since.
Throughout the years Metro has been involved in Memphis’ most recognizable developments and historical projects including renovations of the Peabody Hotel, redevelopment of the Peabody Place Historic Block, constructing the Fire Museum of Memphis, remodeling the historic WDIA building and more. Quality craftsmanship and attention to detail has helped Metro secure a reputation of being the construction company for historic renovations.
Whether Metro is on the job for FedEx, renovating the Lipscomb & Pitts Building or working for any of the thousands of customers over the last three decades, we continue to surpass expectations every time. Metro has created valuable relationships, cultivated repeat business, and built a reputation for quality construction and exceptional customer service.
