In 1969 Garry Meadows began work for the Arkansas State highway Department in the engineering department inspecting and supervising roadway construction.  By 1973, he was superintendent for Southern Paving Construction in Pine Bluff, Arkansas  responsible for various projects ranging from $1 to $15milliion.  In 1978, Garry went to work for the City of Jonesboro as Street Superintendent.  With his extensive project management experience, Garry helped co-found Cameron Construction in 1983.

In 1991 Garry's journey had taken him from a beginning operator, into responsibilities of foreman to superintendent of large scale projects including commercial site work in addition to the familiar highway department work.  Meanwhile, Rick Meadows, Garry's son and recent high school graduate, had several summers of working for is father as a laborer and operator.

With 23 years of experience in heavy construction, Garry, along with Rick, laid the groundwork for what is today Meadows Construction.  Utilizing Garry's wife Carol
yn as bookkeeper, gradually the two hired additional staff to support their growing efforts.

In 1994, as the street and highway project became larger, Garry and Rick hired Dale Wood as their project estimator.  In 1995, Dale was added as a stockholder.  The company operated today under the direction of Garry, Rick and Dale has the capability to fulfill the construction needs of the largest projects brought to the area.  From Humble beginnings of small equipment jobs (with a  dozer, backhoe and dump truck), the company has grown into the largest provider of commercial site work in the Northeast Arkansas region.  In addition, Meadows Construction offers work in drainage system, highway, street and road construction, plus airport runways.
