Over Seventy Five Years

In the summer of 1946, Tuckman-Barbee Construction Co., Inc. was founded by Mr. H. Graham Barbee, Jr., Mr. David Tuckman, and Mr. A. E. Lichtman. The firm was instrumental in many of the early Giant Food Stores during their expansion phase. It was during this time that Tuckman-Barbee established a reputation for competitive pricing, quality construction, and professional project management for complex projects.
