At Sterling, ours is a people-centric approach – always being there with the right solutions which is why we take pride in anticipating future needs and unearthing new ways to bring added value to our customers and our communities.

We’re adept at going above and beyond the expected, doing more, and meeting service needs that other companies aren’t providing.

We are SOUND

Benefitting from a wealth of business model adjustments and growth initiatives, Sterling management transformed a struggling parent company of construction firms into one of the top-performing infrastructure services companies in the nation. Whether it’s bidding on a new project, extending customer services, or planning for future infrastructure endeavors, Sterling’s fiscal approach is always predicated on rock-solid, well-founded strategy and an unwavering commitment to building trust and delivering value for our investors, customers, and society at large.


Fearless and forward-thinking, we are driven by a passion for progress. We love that what we do not only builds the nation but improves the quality of life for every community we serve. We build. We create. We facilitate change. That same spirit fuels all future endeavors as we seek to meet the needs of an ever-expanding infrastructure framework with dynamic solutions and services.
