Founded in 1944 by T. U. Parks as the sole proprietor, Parks is known throughout the Southeast for our diverse construction experience. Our goal as a general contractor has remained through four generations: Never sacrifice quality, never stop learning about the industry, and never neglect the personal touch.


About Us

T.U. Parks Construction Company holds an unlimited Building Contractors license for General Contracting in the State of Tennessee. In addition, we have worked and been licensed in Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Kentucky, Mississippi, Virginia, West Virginia, and Indiana.


We offer an array of construction services including general contracting, design-build, and construction management. In all aspects of our business, we strive to exceed the expectations of our clients — in schedule, budget, and aesthetics — while maintaining a safe construction experience. The most valued aspect of our business are the relationships with owners, architects, and subcontractors throughout the region. In the last decade, more than 95 percent of our annual volume as been from return clients, and we seek to maintain that statistic by prioritizing teamwork from the first estimate to closeout.



T.U. Parks is the largest private employer of carpenters and laborers in the Chattanooga market.  For more than 70 years, we have self-performed demolition, cast-in-place concrete, rough and finish carpentry, and installation of doors, windows, and specialities. Our on-hand labor force means that we can quickly and effectively work through problems to keep a project moving forward without negotiating with subcontractors, offering better cost- and schedule-control to the owner.
