In 1979, entrepreneurs Paul McKee Jr. and Richard Jordan linked their first names to form PARIC Corporation and launched a legacy as construction efficiency pioneers. As the market struggled to find greater efficiencies in the often sluggish bid/build delivery method, PARIC turned the problem on its head by striving to become the first and last point of contact on its projects. The firm began orchestrating all facets of a project, including design, engineering, pricing and subcontractor coordination.
