AEP Central Machine Shop
In order to perform work for American Electric Power, companies must be a member of ISNetworld, and undergo rigorous audits and verifications of safety programs, insurance requirements, and maintain low experience modification ratings. In May of 2019, the AEP Central Machine contracted with Landcore Builders to renovate several of their offices, labs, and meeting rooms. Landcore team members worked on the project in phases to provide minimal disruptions to AEP personnel. In July of 2019, AEP representatives were pleased with the results of the first three phases and decided to award two additional phases to Landcore. In addition to the renovations, Landcore Builders has been awarded additional contracts to perform work associated with security upgrades as well as other various construction projects within the facility.
Mineral Wells Weigh Stations
Landcore Builders was selected by the West Virginia Division of Highways in March of 2019 for the construction of two new weigh stations along Interstate 77 in Mineral Wells, WV. In addition to building two new facilities, the project involved existing building demolition, a variety of concrete pavement repairs to include both partial and full depth pavement repairs, numerous utility and signage upgrades along the interstate, and the installation of new weigh bridges and measuring software at both locations.
Harris Riverfront Park Skate Park
In March of 2019, Landcore Builders broke ground on Phase II of the Huntington skate park in Harris Riverfront Park. Early on crews realized that the planned elevations for the park would create multiple drainage issues for the existing skate park as well as the new phase. Landcore team members work with architects from Edward Tucker Architects to develop a new design that would eliminate the drainage issues while staying within the City’s budget. As the new design was being finalized, team members continued to work on various elements of the park, and were able to complete the entire project in five weeks.
Charleston Sanitary Board Building Addition
In February of 2019, Landcore Builders won a bid to construct an addition to an existing warehouse for the Charleston Sanitary Board. The addition involved the construction of a Parkline metal building and foundation design. In order to obtain addition space in a quick manner, Charleston Sanitary Board imposed a construction period of 90 days to manufacture and construct the building. Landcore representatives worked with Parkline to condense the lead times for the building, and were able to deliver the building to the Sanitary Board in 60 days.
Core Industrial Group
In March of 2018, construction began on the site development and building construction of 22,000 Sqft $3.2 million industrial facility for Core Industrial Group. Landcore Builders handled all of the design work and self-performed approximately 60% of the overall project. Site development included the construction of 1000 linear feet of roadway, utility installation, and construction of the building pad. In all, nearly 14,000 cubic yards of material was moved prior to beginning building construction. Several large-scale pieces of equipment within the facility required detailed concrete and steel work to accommodate the equipment. Construction of the facility was completed and turned over to the owner in seven months.
Big Sandy Superstore Arena
In November of 2018, Landcore crews began a beautification project around the Big Sandy Superstore Arena in Huntington, WV. The project involved removing and replacing existing sidewalks. In addition to new sidewalks, lighting improvements were made by adding additional street lights, and 14 new parking spaces were added to the facility with the creation of a new staff parking area. Crews worked around numerous events scheduled at the arena throughout construction including concerts that brought 8000-9000 people to the arena. During the events, all sidewalks, new and old, remained open to the public.
Huntington ADA Ramps
In April of 2018 Landcore Builders was awarded the contract from the West Virginia Division of Highways to design and build ADA compliant curb ramps at 117 locations across Huntington, WV and Wayne, WV. Curb ramps were subjected to rigorous guidelines outlined by the United States Access Board Proposed Accessibility Guidelines for Pedestrian Facilities in the Public Right of Way (PROWAG). Construction began after the design phase in early July, and substantial completion was achieved in late September after final inspection with the WVDOH.
Huntington Physical Therapy
In the Spring of 2018, Landcore Builders began working with representatives from Huntington Physical Therapy on constructing a new location in Milton, WV. Landcore facilitated the design of the building as well as the overall site layout to meet the needs of the client. Several designs were created and value engineered prior to arriving at a design that met the client’s budget and needs. This new 4,500 sq. ft building will not only serve Huntington Physical Therapy, but will also have custom build outs for a national investment firm and a national insurance agency. Construction of this new building began in November and opened in early March.
Marco’s Pizza & Paradise Donuts
In 2017, Landcore Builders was contracted by R & J Development of Catlettsburg, KY for the construction of what would be the shell for a new Marco’s Pizza and Paradise Donuts. Before construction could begin, Landcore crews had to demo the existing carwash and relocate several utilities. While building the shell of the building, a relationship was formed with the Owner of Marco’s and Paradise franchise, and the decision was made to have Landcore complete the interior build out. In the end, Landcore met the compressed schedule for the entire project and come in under budget.
Cenergy LLC, a leader in natural gas metering and regulation stations, contracted Landcore Builders to design and construct a new office building in Milton. Landcore broke ground on the new 3000 sq. ft space in December of 2010. Despite winter weather conditions, crews were able to complete the building on time and under budget. Since completing the original office building, two more additions were made to meet Cenergy’s ever demanding growth bringing the total office space up to 5000 sq. ft. Over the years, Cenergy has entrusted Landcore Builders to complete several building renovations and maintenance projects throughout their four locations in Milton.
In 2016, Landcore Builders began working with Unlimited PossAbillities, a repeat client, to design and build a new 10,000 sq. ft. office complex, with Unlimited being the anchor tenant. The design called for the construction of two separate buildings, one for the main office and the other to serve as a primary activity building. The construction of the activity building required meeting numerous ADA guidelines due to the unique occupancy of the building. The main office building required custom build outs for additional office space that is home to a national legal firm as well as a national orthopedic firm. Prior to construction of the new building, existing structures had to be removed from the site, and multiple utilities had to be relocated. As stated above, Unlimited PossAbilites is a repeat client. Landcore built their original office building in 2011 and we were honored to be chosen to be part of their new adventure.
Guyan River Public Library
In 2016, Landcore Builders, was contracted by the West Virginia Library Commission to construct a 2000 sq. ft library in Branchland, WV.

Construction of the new building was completed in under 100 days and ahead of schedule.
Bower/OBGYN Medical Office Building
In 2016, Landcore Builders constructed a 4000 sq. ft. medical office space for Dr. Brian Bower with Cabell Huntington Hospital Women’s Health Barboursville. The two-story building was designed to mirror the Cabell Family Medical Center located within the same business park. Since the project was built on undeveloped land, it required working with local utility boards to orchestrate mainline extension agreements for multiple utilities. The medical office housed a variety of rooms including exams rooms, laboratory space, and office space.
Snap Fitness/Generations Physical Therapy
In 2014, Landcore Builders completed a total interior and exterior renovation of a 7500 sq ft space. The project involved fully renovating the interior space including the removal of interior walls as well as all of the mechanical components. Exterior improvements included the addition of storefront windows, new roof, and new façade. Landcore team members were able to complete the project in 78 days, and worked with the owner to value engineer the project that resulted in significant cost savings for the owner.
