By: Big-D Signature
The Big-D story begins nearly 50-years ago, when a 30-year-old carpenter named Dee Livingood sold his blue Volkswagen for $1,000. The young carpenter had just 2 weeks to get his business off the ground. Determined to succeed, Dee assembled a team of the best people in the industry, and called his founding leaders his “young lions.”
This was in 1967. Today, Big-D Construction is now a leader in construction, netting more than a billion dollars in sales in 2016. The company has seven regional offices and employs nearly 1,000 employees. In 2001, Big-D Signature was founded and has since completed several residential and hospitality projects across the United States.
Big-D Construction and Big-D Signature are celebrating the past with an interactive timeline. The timeline tells the story of Dee Livingood and the founding of Big-D Construction. It opens with an introduction from Dee’s son and Chairman to Big-D, Jack Livingood. The introduction partially reads, “While our projects have defined us in the marketplace, our employees have always been our catalyst for success. We want to honor their achievements by celebrating our past as we prepare for the next 50 years here at Big-D.”
Each event on the timeline talks about monumental projects and business milestones for Big-D, as well as some interesting factoids. For example, several employees were honored for helping to contain an oil spill in the Salt Lake Valley back in 2010. Also in the interactive vault are the very first sketches of the Ironman.
