History and


J. E. Decker Construction Group is a 4th generation family builder. We’ve been “Building traditions since 1931.”

J. E. Decker Construction Group is a commercial General Contractor and Construction Manager in Florida (CGC1522815) with roots going back to James L. Ewell Construction, which began serving Florida in 1931.  In 1954, J. L. Ewell Construction branched out and became one of the largest highway contractors in the State of Florida, and eventually grew to become one of the largest construction firms in Florida with over 2000 employees.

In 1982, James Ewell Decker, a third generation family builder, re-activated the commercial building program for J. L. Ewell Construction and operated under this name until 1990, at which time the company name changed to James E. Decker Construction Company.

In 2012, the company was re-established as an LLC, and the company name was changed to J. E. Decker Construction Group, LLC.  Today, the company continues to assist clients with the complete building process from design-build projects to competitive and negotiated contracts.

Our mission is to do “Whatever It Takes” to be the best partner for clients, our employees and subcontractors in delivering the best projects possible.  To accomplish this we will do whatever is required in order to achieve operational excellence and efficiency, complete customer satisfaction, and delivery of high quality projects on time and within budget.

We enjoy meeting with our clients to find out their dreams and goals. We are problem solvers and enjoy the challenge of figuring out the best solutions.

J. E. Decker Construction Group believes our people make the company. This is our foundation and what brings us together as a team to help others.
