Mr. I. Jud Scott—known as “Cap’n Jud”—formed Scott Construction Company in 1933 with his oldest brother, Mr. W. Fred Scott and Mr. W. A. Britton in Thomasville, Georgia. Fred Scott already lived and worked in Thomasville running the W. F. Scott Company, which did small civil construction along with other business ventures in the area. The new Company grew quickly building bridges, highways, culverts, docks and dams in the Southeast, and even built a number of airport runways during WWII. In the early ‘40s, the brother’s cousin J. C. Scott joined Scott Construction Co. as a partner and general superintendent.
The Scott Construction Company continued to serve communities in Georgia and surrounding areas of the Southeast throughout the 1930s and 1940s. The company steadily earned a reputation for quality workmanship and honest negotiations, while delivering numerous high-profile projects:
Today, the company is led by Ike Scott III, and his brothers Bill and David, with additional fourth generation family members serving in various important roles.
They along with the dedicated men and women who make up the Scott Bridge Family, continue to uphold the principles and traditions on which the company was founded.
