In 2023, Sperry Construction celebrates 50 years of helping businesses build their dreams.


Founded by Don and Jane Sperry in 1973, Sperry Construction is one of Tallahassee’s oldest family-owned construction companies. “Don Sperry started this company with a handshake, a smile, and lots of hard work,” says Bart Wells, President of the company. “Mr. Sperry had a vision to create a construction firm in Tallahassee that specialized in private sector work, developed an expertise in pre-engineered metal buildings, and built relationships that last. We’re proud to carry on that legacy today.”

Pre-Engineered Metal Building Specialists

Sperry Construction was founded as Sperry Metal Buildings and that expertise remains the core of the company’s business. In fact, Sperry often works with other construction companies to help them manage and erect projects that require these precise structures. “If your project will involve the use of pre-engineered metal buildings, we can provide you with a level of construction expertise that is unmatched in our region,” says Jay Bostwick, Vice President of Business Development.

Sperry also works with clients who are seeking to expand or add to their existing metal building structures. “We know this method of construction better than anyone and are confident that our metal building expertise will drive value to your organization throughout every phase of your project.”
