About Us

Our Story

For 25 years Vertical Earth has established our company as a Builder, not only building successful projects and solutions, but also trust with our clients and rewarding careers for our employees. While the early years of Vertical Earth were focused primarily on civil structures and retaining walls, we’ve grown into a turn-key provider of sitework and road construction services. Being purposefully diverse adds to the long-term strength of the company and will remain an asset as we continue to grow.
