B.E. Beecroft Co., Inc. was founded in 1967 by Bert Beecroft. A 1951 Civil Engineering graduate of Texas A&M College, Bert was commissioned in the United States Air Force and served as a fighter pilot in the Korean War. After his military service was complete, he worked with several construction-related companies in various parts of Texas, eventually joining a family member in Corpus Christi. Deciding to work on his own, he formed B. E. Beecroft Co., Inc. and began performing small commercial building projects. In the aftermath of Hurricane Celia in August of 1970, there was a tremendous amount of construction in the Corpus Christi area, which provided the opportunity for the company to grow to an established and sustainable firm. The company has continued to grow through the years, but has retained the commitment to fair business dealings and honest communication that Bert Beecroft practiced from the beginning.
In 1984 Sam Beecroft joined the firm after working for W. S. Bellows Construction Corporation for 5 years in Houston, Texas. Also a Civil Engineering graduate of Texas A&M University, Sam has guided the company as President since 1998. Sam’s personal interest in the design and engineering fields has led the company to pursue projects of a more technical nature, or projects that require greater than average skill of the builder.
In 1998 Shannon Reynolds joined the firm after working for Freese and Nichols in Ft. Worth. With a Construction Science degree from Texas A&M University, Shannon has been involved in many large and complex civil and building projects throughout Texas. As a shareholder and principal of the firm since 2007, Shannon has led operations and driven performance improvement throughout the firm.
After 50 years of continuous commercial building work in South Texas, B. E. Beecroft Co., Inc. believes that our foundation is solid. We believe that the old rules of honesty and dedication to craft still apply. We believe that new tools applied with skill can yield efficiency and make possible what could only be dreamed of in the past.
And we believe that our brightest days are ahead of us.
