Founded in 1946, Robins & Morton is a privately-held construction firm committed to making a lasting impact on the people and companies we partner with. Dedication to our core values, coupled with a focus on innovation, enables us to attract and retain the best people, delivering exceptional results on every project. In the past ten years alone, we have completed nearly $10 billion in projects throughout the country. These projects vary from major new hospitals and complex renovations, to hospitality projects and a variety of other commercial work.
Specialized construction experience, collaboration with all project team members and doing whatever it takes to meet our commitments are key to the successful completion of each project.
Robins & Morton continues to evolve with the ever-changing construction industry, developing new and better ways to serve our clients. But our values and guiding principles remain the same. These values define who we are and lay the foundation for the promises we make to our clients, employees, trade partners and communities to always be reliable both on and off the jobsite.
Building Forward represents our cultural commitment to continuously improve everything we do. Through four main tenets—collaboration, continuous improvement, leadership development, and building a learning culture—we empower individuals at every level to share innovative ideas and provide feedback on processes. While this effort began within Robins & Morton, we extend this philosophy into our relationships with clients, trade partners and industry peers. Encouraging collaboration that fosters trust, transparency and efficiency is essential to providing the best customer service.
Although there are several key values that Robins & Morton holds in high regard while conducting business, none are more ingrained in our culture than safety. Through proactive education for employees, clients and trade partners, we strive to ensure operational and safety excellence on every project. By coupling training with consistent onsite coaching, work planning and continuous assessments of our project safety management system, we work to inspire ownership that creates the safest possible workplace. Each of these practices is supported by our safety vision: to provide a safe and healthy work environment for all who are touched by our business and a culture of safety commitment to each other.
Each year, Robins & Morton is recognized nationally for our safety performance. While we are proud of these accomplishments, safety has never been about slogans, numbers, rates, awards or policies. It is about actively caring for each other and having the determination to do what is necessary to ensure everyone touched by our business goes home safely to their families.
At Robins & Morton, we strive to promote healthy communities both during construction and long after we are gone. We employ a triple bottom line approach to sustainability: balancing our social, environmental and economic responsibilities to minimize the negative impacts of construction and identify ways to add value. A relentless pursuit of continuous improvement means we never stop learning and looking for ways to reduce waste in every phase of our business. Whether seeking green building certification or not, we implement sustainable strategies on every project.
Robins & Morton’s impact extends beyond the facilities we build. We are also passionate about serving the cities and towns where we live and work. Our people take pride in seeking out charitable initiatives, volunteer organizations, and community outreach programs that improve the lives of others. Through our Giving with Purpose program, we are able to give back to the communities that have given so much to us with service, in-kind donations and financial support.
Robins & Morton was founded in 1946 by Todd Robins. Known then as Robins Engineering, the company’s first project was an 800-square-foot gas station on the east side of Birmingham, Alabama. From there, Robins Engineering went on to focus on the engineering, design, and construction of steel mills across the South and Midwest in its first 20 years of business.
Robins & Morton has maintained a continuous onsite relationship with Huntsville Hospital for the past 25 years as the campus has grown from 540,000 SF to over 4,500,000 SF. As our general contracting partner, Robins & Morton has been an integral part of this growth. All projects have been completed in a cooperative effort, on schedule and within budget. Robins & Morton always has our best interest in mind and ours continues to be a tremendous relationship.
