Work at Branch

Our employees are the heart and soul of our company. We believe in finding talented individuals and working with them to develop their professional and personal goals.

Today, in 1963, our founder Billy Branch incorporated Branch & Associates and started our company as a site development and road contractor. While we’ve changed and grown in the past 60 years, it’s clear to see that his commitment to employee ownership and quality construction services hasn’t changed.

This year, we’ll be sharing our history and the future of employee ownership. Follow us to learn about the Branch legacy.

We are proud to have hosted our inaugural Girls in Real Life (G.I.R.L.) Construction Experience this past Saturday at our headquarters in Roanoke, Virginia. With the help of our trade partners, employee owners, and volunteers, we offered 34 immersive experiences for girls ages 5 to 18 to explore construction concepts with real-life applications.

As we push towards a more inclusive industry, it is important to show that anyone can find a passion in construction. Through events like G.I.R.L, we help kids and parents experience the variety of opportunities that make up our industry. #BranchGIRL

Our teams utilize technology like the Trimble X7. The 3D scanner sends vision-safe lasers to measure the building or jobsite. It then converts those measurements into a 3D model known as a Point Cloud which provides the design and construction team with a real-time as-built model of the site. Doing real-time scanning helps the team identify potential problems, verify existing conditions, and provide accurate plans and drawings to the owner after construction. ...
