The CEO of the Branch Group, Donald. D. Graul, was once again named as one of the Virginia 500: 2022 Power List by Virginia Business magazine. Under Don’s leadership, we have strengthened our employee-owned company by investing in a new headquarters and a new fabrication facility in Roanoke, Virginia. Additionally, we have built a new equipment facilities shop in Suffolk, expanded offices in Richmond and Chesapeake, and plan to continue that expansion in Northern Virginia and Raleigh, North Carolina, through the end of the year into 2023. Through a commitment to exceptional project delivery, dedication to creating strong teams, and building a more collaborative and inclusive culture between business units, Donald was able to steer the company to the largest share growth in the history of the company in 2022. ...

Our teams utilize technology like the Trimble X7. The 3D scanner sends vision-safe lasers to measure the building or jobsite. It then converts those measurements into a 3D model known as a Point Cloud which provides the design and construction team with a real-time as-built model of the site. Doing real-time scanning helps the team identify potential problems, verify existing conditions, and provide accurate plans and drawings to the owner after construction. ...
