Company History

The Company was founded in 1966 by Ray O. Peoples and his wife Ezelle Peoples as Peoples Erecting Company. The company specialized in steel erection for other contractors. In 1970, Peoples became an authorized representative for Varco Pruden and later changed its name to Peoples Construction Corporation. In the early 1970’s Ray's sons, Steve Peoples and Charles Peoples joined the company. Peoples Construction then moved from supplying and erecting metal buildings into the role of a full service design/build general contractor, handling turn-key projects. Since then, the third generation of Peoples have assumed management and daily operations of the corporation. Peoples Construction currently has twenty five employees, and has become a premier general contractor for medium to large commercial construction projects in Mississippi. 

Company Philosophy

Our goal is a simple one: Provide the customer with such a level of quality and service that they will be confident in recommending us to others. To do this, Peoples must have functional and attractive designs, competitive pricing, quality workmanship, timely work progress as well as responsive service after completion. Attainment of this goal is shown in the fact that 95% of Peoples Construction Corporation business is from repeat or referred customers.
