The Story of The Green family construction business started in the early twentieth century.  Around 1919, Ira Green left St. Louis, Missouri where he had worked at his father’s wagon wheel shop . His dreams led him west at sixteen years of age and he settled in Carbondale, Colorado around 1920.  He noticed the need for a carpenter in the area and started a small business building structures for the local residents.  During the 1920’s, he completed many homes and commercial buildings up and down the Roaring Fork River Valley.  The 1930’s began and along with raising a large family, Ira was constructing many of the railroad bridges from Glenwood Springs, Colorado and west. 

After completing a stretch in the Marine Corps during WWII, Ira’s son Ed Green joined the company and moved to Fountain, Colorado.  Recognizing the need in the area for a general construction company, he joined with his father and several business partners to form a construction company.  Over the next twenty years, the company grew in reputation and stature in the community and surrounding area due to the quality of workmanship and attention to customer satisfaction shown by everyone in the organization.   

In the mid-seventies, Ed Green recruited his son Fred, after his honorable discharge from the U.S Navy during the Vietnam war era, and Ed Green & Son Construction was born.  Over the next few years, the company continued to grow in size and reputation.  In 1994, shortly after Ed passed away, Fred Green took over and changed the company name to Ed Green Construction Co. in honor of his dad.  

The company’s reputation for quality work done in a timely manner that was completed well within the client’s budget continued.  Approximately 85% of the companies business comes from either repeat customers or referrals.  The types of projects Ed Green Construction handles have varied over the years and included work for telephone companies, city and county governments as well as state and federal projects ranging from small jobs up to ten million dollar projects.
