Big-D Construction Acquires Boise-Based McAlvain Companies, Inc.

Big-D Construction announced today that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire McAlvain Companies, Inc. The acquisition is expected to close later this month.

“Everyone here at McAlvain is extremely excited about this important new phase in our company’s history. We have strategically aligned ourselves with a company that is a perfect fit with our family culture and core values. It ensures that we will continue to build on the successes that our employees have provided for us and deliver new opportunities for both our self-performing and construction services divisions. Combining our strengths and aligning our resources with Big-D will reinforce best-in-class customer services and accomplished construction project delivery teams. As we have done in the past, we will continue to strive to always exceed our client’s expectations,” said McAlvain.
