Company History

The roots of James Construction Group, LLC, date back to 1926 when T.L. James & Company, Inc. was established in Ruston, Louisiana. Over the next 70 years, the company grew into one of the largest heavy civil contractors in the southern United States, performing heavy civil, highway, airport, and marine construction services. The Company further expanded its customer base and market service area in the late 1980s, offering industrial and environmental construction services to private industry.

In 1998, the T.L. James & Company construction operations were merged with the southern operations of Angelo Iafrate Construction to form what is now known as James Construction Group, LLC, or JCG. 

Headquartered in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, JCG is structured with two major construction groups: 1) the Industrial Construction Group and 2) the Heavy Construction Group.

The Industrial Construction Group encompasses two business units, the Industrial Division and the Sitework/Environmental Division. The Industrial Division provides all phases of civil/structural construction, mechanical equipment erection, and process pipe installation for private industrial clients. Specialty services include boiler, furnace, and heater repair and installation.

JCG’s Sitework/Environmental Division has a proven track record of successful performances on large earthwork and site development projects throughout the southern region of the United States. The Division also has extensive expertise on landfill and remediation projects that require handling the unique soil/groundwater conditions encountered in this area of the country.  This experience includes the closure work for several major “superfund” sites in Louisiana.

The Heavy Construction Group of JCG is comprised of three business units that include North Louisiana Heavy Civil Operations, South Louisiana Heavy Civil Operations, and Texas Heavy Civil Operations. Each of these business units provide primarily heavy civil and highway construction services for local, state, and federal governmental entities such as the Department of Transportation, Department of Defense, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and various Port Commissions.
