HISTORY

WE’RE PROUD OF OUR RICH HISTORY AT IRBY

It’s hard in the business of building electric power infrastructure to have a history deeper than Irby Construction Company. We’ve been building electric power transmission lines as long as anyone. In fact, Irby crews built much of the existing electric grid and broke new ground on many industry firsts. The tradition continues today as we work to expand the grid’s capacity and apply new technologies for the future. Click on the timeline below to explore our proud past year by year.

Hurricane Michael made landfall on October 10th, 2018 near Mexico Beach, Florida as a Category 5 storm. A Florida-based utility’s 230kV 34-mile transmission line was damaged beyond repair. On November 15th, Irby was awarded the job with three months to remove and rebuild the line. We began work on December 3rd and completed the project with zero safety incidents on schedule.
