8 Construction Company Success Stories [2023]
Start A Construction Company

Running a construction company can be very rewarding and require hard work, attention to detail, and a hustle mentality.

Construction companies are responsible for building/designing a variety of apartments, buildings, properties, housing, infrastructure, facilities & developments, motorways, roads, paths, pavement, and more.

In this article, we provide you with the top construction business success stories.

1. MTN SIDE BUILDERS ($480K/year)

Andrew Stokes - Cameron Vilcsak (from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada) started MTN SIDE BUILDERS about 5 years ago.

With a little luck, and a lot of gaming the YouTube algorithm, I was able to experience the viral effects of the internet. It has now been seen by over 25m people through my channel and other media networks.


2. Boxabl ($120M/year)

Galiano Tiramani (from Las Vegas, NV, USA) started Boxabl over 5 years ago.

$10M / month
2 founders / 20 employees

Case Study

My name is Galiano Tiramani and I am a founder of Boxabl. Boxabl is a building construction technology company. Modern-day construction is inefficient, time-consuming, and costly. Raw materials are shipped to a construction site, exposed to the elements, and then used to build a structure by hand. Boxabl takes a different approach. The Boxabl approach mimics the automotive industry; an assembly line for houses. The result is a highly efficient, cost-effective, solution for a trillion-dollar industry.

We are also a design company. The main attraction of our product’s design is that it is simple yet complex. Kind of like an iPhone. I believe simplicity is something that is often overlooked by entrepreneurs first starting. The most successful companies have simplicity at the forefront. Apple uses a simple design. Amazon started with a simple idea. Facebook started with simple code. Did their design, idea, and code evolve to become more complex over time? Absolutely. But this evolution towards complexity occurred over years by learning from failures and obtaining expertise.
