DA Collins Companies


Today, the D.A. Collins Companies leads the northeast in civil construction and associated services as a multi-brand organization. But in 1948, D.A. Collins Construction was just a man and a pickup truck. Through growth and acquisitions, the company became a family of organizations, though that wasn’t always clear to customers and new hires.

Their team selected Black Dog Designs to tackle that challenge. Through a redesign of their corporate website, we helped improve company-wide recognition across the group’s many brands. We also reclassified the site’s important services to improve usability – allowing for a clearer path for purchasing materials versus researching for bids.
