civil construction as planned
We are Lacy Construction
Lacy Construction was founded in Dallas in 1919 by L. H. Lacy, who built the business by constructing homes and buildings, including the city’s historic Woodrow Wilson High School, parts of the renowned Scott & White Memorial Hospital in Temple, as well as Austin’s landmark Driskill Hotel.
“Ground-breaking innovation in full-service civil construction.”
In the 1930s, we added heavy civil construction services and began building bridges, brick highways and concrete pavement. Notable projects included portions of Dallas’ Central Expressway, Dallas Love Field, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, Dallas North Tollway, Redbird Airport (now Dallas Executive Airport), Loop 12 and other city, county, state and private projects. We also built portions of Hobby Airport and the Katy Freeway in Houston, Interstates 10, 20, 30, 40, 25, 35, 45 and 820 and many regional military and government facilities.
We were one of the first to use slip-form paving in Texas and later, successfully employed the technique on subdivision and city streets. We also pioneered the Hagan horizontal shaft central mixer, the lime slurry valve, the Gomaco 9500 placer/trimmer and the use of fly ash in portable plants.
Today, our portfolio of work includes municipal and county projects, shopping centers, churches, schools, warehouses, car dealerships, distribution centers and residential subdivisions.
"Hunt Properties feels great comfort knowing Lacy Construction has the ability to handle all of our construction and scheduling needs to meet our sometimes, ALMOST impossible commitments to tenants."

“Attitude is everything! And Lacy rates an A+ from my standpoint on this project. All elements for a successful project were there, especially in light of the contractor coordination necessary to successfully complete this residential development."

“Prestonwood Baptist Church was a fast-track project. Site work had to go fast and be done correctly. That's where Lacy Construction came in: On budget and on schedule. Lacy has again proven to be one of the best contractors in their field of expertise.”
