Founded in 1954, Charles Construction Co. has a superior legacy of public, commercial and private construction achievements. Projects have ranged from large scale single and multiple story structures, major existing building renovations, to pre-engineered structures. Charles’ continued success is built upon the high standards set by the founder and owner, Charles Matses. Charles’ vision and work ethic has been paramount in the company’s success in the design and construction process, and management.
