Profile / History

The Reed family of companies began with the flagship company,
E.E. Reed Construction Company, in 1977. Founder, E.E. “Gene” Reed, grew up in Houston and was educated at The University of Texas.
After 17 years in the construction business, Gene started his own company. Now the company is run by second generation leadership,
Mark Reed. An Aggie by education, Mark has been in the business almost thirty years. He consistently motivates his employees and encourages them to build on the legacy his father created.

Today, the company is comprised of four entities operating from coast to coast. E.E. Reed Construction is headquartered in Sugar Land and serves the southwest region. E.E. Reed East Coast operates in the Mid-Atlantic area, as well as, Savannah, GA. Zapalac/Reed Construction Co., L.P., services Austin, and Davis/Reed Construction, Inc. operates on the West Coast.

Project types for all companies include commercial office buildings, corporate interiors, industrial, value office, hospitality, residential, healthcare, research, retail, institutional, and religious facilities. While quality, commitment and integrity define E.E. Reed’s core values, it is the staff’s talent and depth of experience that recognizes the Reed Family of Companies as a leader in the construction industry.
