Our Rich History
Building Success Since 1977
Shaw Brothers began with two brothers, two employees, one backhoe and a handshake—and it began with the same principles that it lives by today: work hard, satisfy the customer, and respect the people you work with. Since then Shaw Brothers Construction has grown into one of Southern Maine’s largest earthwork contractors, with more than 200 employees and hundreds of pieces of equipment. Having completed over 800 commercial projects ranging from $5 thousand to $15 million and spanning a roughly 100-mile radius around Portland, Maine, Jon and Dan continue to schedule and direct day-to-day operations.
A Solid Foundation for Steady Growth
Shaw Brothers Construction, Inc. is Southern Maine’s premier contractor for site development, heavy/highway, and utility projects. With a significant bonding capacity, its work spans the transportation sector, local municipal infrastructure, underground utility work, and commercial site development, and it provides the region with quality aggregate resources from more than a dozen permitted gravel pits and quarries. Shaw Brothers’ success is a direct result of its hard working and experienced personnel, its vast fleet of late-model equipment, and its abundant aggregate resources.
