How We Got Started
In 1972, Eric L. Brackett, a native of Durham North Carolina, started the Construction Company, Inc (EBCCI). The company began building custom homes and remodeling existing homes with a primary emphasis on superior workmanship and construction methods. We quickly differentiated itself in the marketplace by providing its customers with exceptional quality well above required standards.
During the early years, EBCCI took on a number of foundation repair and stabilization projects. It utilized techniques such as slot or lug footings, or auger-cast concrete column underpins. The foundation repair activity was limited to ongoing projects where the company was already addressing other core building-related issues. Over time though, it placed more and more emphasis foundation issues exclusively.
In 1992, EBCCI recognized a need for innovation to improve antiquated foundation repair techniques. It began developing a number of adjustable lifting bracket systems, initially for use with auger cast concrete piles. The reliability and superior loading capacity of concrete piles of the system proved to be a market leader. Te system allowed for stabilization of settled structures, as well as significant lifting ability and recovery- which had not been possible before. Moreover, due to the ease of adjustment and dependability of concrete piles, EBCCI could confidently offer long-term warranties.
