Summit Contracting Group: Built on a Foundation of Trust

Our Mission

“Summit has always believed in putting our customers first. This driving principle has made Summit the top nationally ranked firm we are today.”

Marc Padgett, President

Summit’s mission is to serve our clients by providing quality projects built by professionals, establishing lasting relationships and exceeding their expectations. We are committed to attracting, recruiting and retaining the most knowledgeable and passionate professionals in the construction industry, while delivering superior results and contributing to the communities in which we live and work.

Our Story

Since its founding, Summit has built over 100,000 multifamily units across the nation. Our vast experience and success is about more than just production. It’s about our commitment to excellence, unparalleled customer service and no-nonsense relational approach to our work. We value loyalty, and extend it relentlessly to our clients, vendors and team-members.

Our clients have come to appreciate the benefits of working with our company: our experienced management team, strong subcontractor relationships, and our ability to travel so that our clients do not need to gamble on or build new contractor relationships in every region they develop in. This has helped us grow into the nation’s largest multifamily builder with exceptional financial strength and buying power, and the ability to provide our clients with unmatched value.

We use industry-leading project management software and quality control programs for easy scheduling, budget tracking, moisture intrusion, mold prevention and more, while maintaining quality and safety and strict adherence to budgets and schedules.

We look forward to working with you on your next project!

Inspired By a Competitive Spirit

We’re driven to be the best for our clients anywhere they develop. There is no competitive advantage to being like everyone else, so we strive to be different and never stop seeking ways to improve.

Focused On a Team Approach

At the heart of our success is our focus on our relationships with our clients, employees and subcontractors. We’re not a team just because we work together, but because we respect, trust and care for one another.
