At Lomax, big company capability meets small company attention. We believe in empowering our front-line managers and superintendents to work hand in hand with Owners and Designers to make any decision necessary in the field. Our superintendents have a powerful and experienced team behind them to provide the support and guidance needed to proactively solve any issue that may arise.

We have grown slowly but steadily,  building a reputation for quality and integrity, and for the ability to deliver unique and complex building projects. Our clients know that our hands-on approach, level of focus and commitment will ensure success on their projects every time.

John Lomax left his position at a respected North Carolina general contractor to form Lomax Construction, Inc. Shortly after, Travis Langley joined the pre-construction team and Richard Lewis joined the Project Management team to provide additional support to the company.
Positive Moves & Partnership
Travis Langley, Vice President of Pre-construction Services, along with  J. J. Patterson ( Former Director of Project Management with Samet Corporation ) as Vice President of Business Development & Marketing  are  planning  to expand its client base and focus more on design-build, construction management at risk (CM@R), and invited bid projects within the Healthcare, Education, Distribution/Warehouse, Commercial, and Industrial markets.

The safety of our clients’ personnel, and those adjacent to our project site always comes first! Our safety program will typically meet or exceed our clients expectations. Our commitment to worker safety permeates throughout our entire company; Lomax strives to achieve safety statistics which in turn reduces costs. Most important, we want our trade workers to go home to their families safely every night.

We take great pride in being honored by the N.C Department of Labor for our Safety Achievements.

Primary Market

The majority of our work is performed in central North Carolina. This includes the twelve (12) counties in the Piedmont Triad area as well as the Raleigh/Durham and Charlotte regions. We believe that general contracting is a very local business and there is no substitute for walking the site to make sure that our company standards are being met. Directing most of our focus to projects we can drive to in a reasonably short timeframe is one of the things that enables our senior management/ownership to maintain its hands-on attention with all of our projects.

Job Size

Lomax has built a strong reputation for completing very complex projects that range in size and value. Part of our business model is to keep our overhead as lean as possible, so we analyze each project to insure it’s a good fit for Lomax and that we have the adequate preconstruction and construction resources before we commit. As our client’s will tell you, if we take on your project, you are going to get our full attention. Large or small, we will perform…our reputation proves it!


We sincerely value our relationships with our subcontractors and suppliers. We believe trust and respect is a two-way street; our subcontractors and suppliers are held to the highest standards: operate in a safe manner at all times, produce quality work, meet their schedule commitments, and honor their bids & contracts.  To obtain information concerning our sub-list, please contact Maria Harvell at 336-992-7000 or by e-mail at mharvell@lomaxconstruction.com.


We take the obligation to share our many blessings with those in need seriously. We perform a significant amount of work for non-profit organizations and try to support those who put their trust in us. But we don’t mix contributions and our services. This can present conflicts of interest and is not typically in the best interest of the client. We think that the best service we can provide for an institution is to deliver a quality facility that will stand the test of time, for the lowest overall cost.

We also believe that charity should be its own reward. Therefore, the majority of our contributions are low profile and/or anonymous. We don’t look at charitable gifts as an opportunity for a press release. We just think it’s something we are called to do. So, if you are a non-profit institution and need a great building at the right price, you’d be in good company if you choose Lomax.

MBE / WBE Outreach

Since our founding, Lomax has always adhered to a strict non-discrimination policy. In our dealings with subcontractors and suppliers, we focus on the best value for the project without regard to race or gender, whether there are contracting goals or not.  This means that we utilize minority and women owned business enterprises on our projects whether there are contracting goals. However, some organizations and public entities desire certain percentages of MBE/WBE firms. With our vast experience working in our market, Lomax has developed an excellent track record of meeting contracting percentage targets in a fair and straightforward manner.
