Reams Construction Co.

Welcome to Reams Construction Co.
Nearly 35 years ago, a young John Reams a native of Naturita (“Little Nature”) entered the work force in mining the Rocky Mountain’s local Uravan Mineral Belt. In 1978, he founded Reams Construction Co., building it from the ground up. Today, the medium-sized company offers general construction services primarily on the Western Slope of Colorado as well as the neighboring states of Utah, Wyoming, Arizona, and New Mexico. The company has thrived on John’s commitment to excellence and safety, which is illustrated by distinguished awards and an impressive list of repeat customers.

Reams Construction Co. serves both the public and the private sectors in commercial and industrial applications. Our focused areas of expertise are:

  • General Earthwork
  • Reclamation
  • Site Work
  • Underground Utilities
  • Water Treatment Plants
  • Wastewater Treatment Plants
  • Oilfield Services
  • Exploration and Production Recycling Facilities


Reams Construction Co. enjoys the challenges of unusual projects that require innovative solutions. From working with Phillips Petroleum installing PE pipe for natural gas as an alternative to the standard iron pipe in the early ’80s to setting a standard for mine reclamation for Cyprus Amax today, finding workable, sensible solutions in construction is our goal.

To ensure continued safety onsite, our staff maintains various OSHA and MSHA certifications. These ongoing training programs illustrate our commitment to safety and professionalism.
Reams Construction Co. and its employees participate in Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) and a variety of other community organizations. Through ABC, Reams has achieved and retained an “Accredited Quality Contractor” status since 1997 and received a platinum S.T.E.P. (Safety Training and Evaluation Process) award in 1999, the inaugural year for this level of achievement.

Reams Construction is proud of the way we conduct business. We are committed to providing the best service possible within the cost and time constraints that we and our customers agree upon. Our pledge is to deliver on cost and on time, because we realize that each project we accomplish is a reflection of not only our company, but our clients as well. We want to be involved in every contract each step of the way to guarantee complete customer satisfaction. We don’t look good unless you look good. This determination extends to our place in the local community, as we strive to include education, environmental awareness, and increased business opportunities as part of our corporate focus.
