WHO WE ARE

Ardent General, Inc. was founded in 2011 as a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business. Although we were a new company at the time, we were not new to construction.

From our years working in many different areas of construction, including Class-A offices, institutional complexes, and sewage treatment facilities, we’ve picked up a few things. We promise to go beyond the typical construction mantras by utilizing our strong work ethic, diverse experience, and endless drive to be better than our competitors. The best reflection of this is in our name, which was specifically chosen to reflect who we are as a company. We are ardent workers, passionate about each and every project. Building is not just what we do, but who we are. It is a lifestyle choice for us. It’s why we work Saturdays, why we attend seminars, and why we constantly strive for improvement. We truly love what we do.

Enthusiastic, passionate, intensely devoted; more dedicated than others.

When Ardent General was founded by our illustrious leaders, James Myers and Justin Barton, their goal was simple: be anything other than the “typical” contractor. That same mentality guides us in who we are today. Long on experience and quick with solutions, our team is highly qualified, passionate, enthusiastic, and devoted to being better than any other contractor. We believe in hard work, integrity, and getting our boots dirty. When it comes to building your big ideas, you’ll see that our service is second to none.
