Gradient History

Gradient History Gradient Construction History Gradient Construction was originally founded in 1992 by John Riffe, with the goal of supporting residential construction projects in the largely rural Southern Maryland area. At first, Gradient Construction specialized in installing residential septic systems, underground tanks, utilities, plumbing and HVAC systems, and had just three employees.

As development began to increase in the area, the demand for Gradient Construction’s services grew and the company turned its focus to commercial work. Gradient Construction has now served a wide variety of commercial and government clients, and has built water/sewage treatment facilities, pipelines and pump stations throughout Southern Maryland.

Now numbering 40 employees, Gradient Construction’s skilled workforce is dedicated to the company ideals of efficiency and quality-oriented work. Gradient Construction’s longevity and growth are the result of its tradition of caring for its employees, as well as careful management and above all, a commitment to customer satisfaction.
