Our Story

Our Story

Marks-Woods Construction was born in 2001 when Byron Woods and Greg Marks cast the vision for a construction company that would offer expertise, an enjoyable customer experience, and a stunning end result. The founders met while working for one of the premier top 20 national construction companies. The two men joined years of experience and a common commitment to excellence in construction to create Marks-Woods Construction. Years later, Drew Marks joined Byron and Greg in ownership of the company, and Marks-Woods Construction became complete. The company first focused on a combination of residential and commercial projects, but eventually found its true niche as a design-build firm dedicated to making the vision and desires of homeowners a reality. Marks-Woods Construction is now the top choice for major additions, kitchen renovations, interior design, and a variety of other major residential construction services. With hundreds of projects completed, Marks-Woods continues to grow and hopes to expand to more geographical areas in future years.
