“We are a service provider to the District, the Community, the Design Team, and the Subcontractors. Our management style keeps communication flowing among everyone involved. It allows me to be personally involved. When given the opportunity to be part of a team, we do our best to deliver a quality project meeting all expectations – opening schools on time every year.”

BTC: Building Tomorrow’s Campuses

Thirty seven years ago, Buford-Thompson Company (BTC) was established. In 1979 the first job bid was put together on Rick Thompson’s kitchen table at home. There was no office. The first real office was a small three room building in Arlington, Texas.

Since then, BTC has been a team member on over 200 school facilities. We have successfully completed over 275 projects with more than 20 different Architectural firms using the Construction Manager-at-Risk delivery system.  Among these projects are over 50 repeat client projects, an indicator of our ability to be a great benefit to any team.

BTC is pleased to present our management team:

  • Rick Thompson – Chief Executive Officer
  • Sammy Martin – President
  • Mike Trammell – Vice President

We take an active role in treating all aspects of a project as if the project was our very own – completing all of our projects on schedule for school occupancy. We are diligent stewards of a district’s property and money, taking advantage of every opportunity to ensure the school district gets the best possible value and quality.
