The Haskew Company was founded in 1980 by Rick Haskew as R.C. Haskew Construction. Initially the company specialized in custom residential properties and light commercial projects. In 1986, R.C. Haskew moved into retail construction, followed by larger distribution facilities with its first 100,000 square foot tilt-wall building, completed in 1989.
R.C. Haskew Construction became the staple of commercial construction in Jacksonville International Tradeport, completing more than 20 free standing office/warehouse/distribution facilities, as well as more than 50 interior build-outs over the years.
In 2006, following the promotions of two of the Haskew Family, Rick Haskew Jr. and Paul Haskew, the company changed its name to Haskew Company, Inc.
The Haskew Company has grown over the years into a diversified general contractor working all over Florida and southeast Georgia. Including additional experience in multi-story hospitality projects, such as The Sleep Inn hotel in St. Augustine and Country Inn and Suites hotels located in Duval and Nassau counties. Extensive experience in manufacturing and specialty construction has afforded the Haskew Company with the knowledge and versatility to stand out and maintain its high demand for first rate construction across the southeastern United States.
Our Founder and President
Richard (Rick) Haskew, Sr.
After graduating from Jacksonville University in 1974, Rick Haskew began a career in land surveying with Charles W. Degrove.
Then in the late 70’s when the prime rate surged to the high teens surveying work came to a halt. Rick had the opportunity to become the field engineer on the renovation of the paper mill in St. Joe, Florida. After completing this project, Rick decided to stay in construction and began R.C. Haskew Construction.
