About Wescon

Wescon Helmet

Wescon Is a family owned Florida Corporation that has been providing commercial construction services in Pensacola and Northwest Florida for 30 years. Since our founding, we have successfully delivered hundreds of quality construction projects by successfully meeting challenges, consistently doing our job, and helping our teammates do theirs.


History

In 1987, West Caldwell founded Wescon Corporation. During the first ten years in business Wescon focused on the public competitive bid market performing considerable work for the U. S. Navy (ROICC), the U. S. Dept. of General Services, Escambia County School Board, and area local governments.

Since 1995, we have focused on Construction Management, negotiated, and select bid projects. Through team work with Owners and Designers and our reputation for successful completion of all of our projects, we have developed great relationships.

We have tempered our growth in volume due to our commitment to maintain personal involvement with all of our projects. Involvement is on a daily basis with all of our key personnel; a group that matches the capabilities of any of this area’s firms – large or small.

As a result, more than 80% of our projects are with repeat customers.
