Archer Construction & Design helps build communities throughout north and east Texas and the southern United States. We offer construction services for municipal, county, and state governments. Local entities have consistently relied on our ability to take projects from start to finish while successfully delivering a high-quality project on time and within budget. Our projects give lasting value and enhance the lives of those in our communities for years to come.

Innovative Solutions For Complex Projects

Public works construction for municipalities can add an extra layer of complexity beyond the typical commercial construction project. Construction for governmental entities can bring more complexity such as regulations, impact studies and extra oversight. Our team has extensive experience in successfully managing these special requirements. We bring innovative and cost-effective solutions to all our projects. Our team has been involved in building facilities for municipalities for more than 20 years, building for clients such as the City of Dallas, the City of Paris, and the City of Greenville, and the City of Bedford to name a few.

City of Paris Emergency Medical Services Station

Archer Construction & Design was the contractor for the City of Paris’ new EMS Station. The project was a 2,100 square foot pre-engineered metal building with two bays, living quarters and kitchen. When the building originally went out for bid it came in over budget. The City rejected all bids and contacted us to look at the project. We were able to get the project in budget and get it completed on time.
