president & ceo
Scott-Long’s plan for growth is simple. We start with a commitment to the development of our employees. Next, we encourage our teams to develop enduring relationships with our customers, designers, and subcontractors. Having a profound sense of pride in our work, we strive for operational excellence in everything we do.
OUR THREE UNIQUES
We simplify the complex.
We care for our customers' purpose, passion, and perceptions.
We deliver award-winning quality.
Building Our Community for over 55 Years
Since 1961, Scott-Long has been one of the most respected construction companies in the DC area. Originally incorporated as Bruce Scott Construction, the company’s driving philosophy centers on superior workmanship, competitive pricing, and innovative technologies.
In 1978, Henry Long joined the company as a consulting partner, resulting in the formation of Scott-Long Construction, Inc. In the early 1990's, Bruce Scott purchased Henry Long’s entire interest, but the company kept the name—and the principles—that contributed to its success through the years.
Where We Are Today: Still Driven by Our Core Values
Since 2004, John Scott, Bruce’s son, has led the company as CEO. He completed the purchase of the company in 2012. John's mission remains true to the founding principles that his father intended: workmanship, innovation, and value.
Over the years Scott-Long has grown steadily in size, scope, and capabilities, and in the process, built a track record of innovation and leadership. We pride ourselves on maintaining a culture that fosters quality and long-term client relationships.
What Sets Us Apart: Our Three Uniques
Our client-centered philosophy is best embodied in our three uniques: we simplify the complex; we care for our customers' purpose, passion, and perceptions; and we deliver award-winning quality. This has won us numerous awards, but more importantly, it has earned us the trust and repeated business of our clients.
Moreover, we specialize in projects we feel offer us the best opportunity to have a lasting, beneficial effect on the lives of our communities. Among these important projects are hospitals, senior care facilities, private schools, religious institutions, clubhouses and other selected commercial facilities.
