McAlvain purchased by Utah construction firm

McAlvain Companies of Boise is about to be part of a larger Salt Lake City company.

McAlvain announced a sale agreement and will be a subsidiary of Big-D Companies. The McAlvain name and management team will stay in place, and it will remain headquartered in Boise, the companies said.

“Everyone here at McAlvain is extremely excited about this important new phase in our company’s history,” CEO Torry McAlvain said in a prepared statement. “We have strategically aligned ourselves with a company that is a perfect fit with our family culture and core values. It ensures that we will continue to build on the successes that our employees have provided for us and deliver new opportunities for both our self-performing and construction services divisions.”

Big-D has acquired other construction firms and left them locally controlled like Johnson Carlier of Tempe, Arizona. Big-D purchased that company in 2017. 

Doug & Serena McAlvain formed the company in 1980. It built a variety of high-profile projects, like the Boise Airport Elevated Roadway, Limelight Hotel in Ketchum, JUMP and more
