Commercial – Residential Renovation and Construction

River City Contractors, founded in 1997, is a Jacksonville based company that built our reputation on the commitment to quality construction. We pride ourselves on performing most of the work on our projects, giving our customers better cost control and workmanship. Ongoing relationships with our customers, including several nationally well known companies, have been the backbone of our success over the years.

etag-frontRiver City initially focused on highly-detailed projects for the DDD, Navy, Marines and other local government agencies, which included NAS Jax, NAS Cecil Field, NAS Kings Bay and NAS Andros Island in the Bahamas. Over the years, the company began doing more public, private and commercial work. We grew our customer base by establishing relationships with many local and national clients in various industries, including restaurants, historic rehabilitation, auto dealerships and tenant build-outs of several national retail chains.

River City Contractors is located in their  office building in trendy San Marco district of Jacksonville, Florida.
