About Us

Who We Are

Dickerson Florida, Inc. first began operations in the 1950s, developing capabilities that range from major highway development, airport and bridge construction to complex nuclear storage facilities and environmental remediation.

Dickerson currently maintains a bonding capacity of $417,000,000 and is prequalified by the Florida Department of Transportation for contract work in excess of $400,000,000.

 As a result of this experience, our teams have developed the knowledge and expertise to mobilize quickly and efficiently to the Southeast areas of the United States for a wide spectrum of construction needs and specialties.

Our Founder

Dickerson Florida, Inc. began under the leadership of Norvin Kennedy Dickerson in 1936 and was incorporated in 1947. Mr. Dickerson started small, like most businesses do. He began with one dragline and a few trucks.

Norvin had the philosophy that you must stay on the leading edge of technology in order to succeed. The corporate brochure from 1975 reads,

“Mr. Dickerson represents a lifetime of construction; he formed the first partnership and led it to incorporation in its present form. For his entire business life, he has been an innovator and a national leader in the industry. He, with his original associates, has put together the skilled management team…that has established the strong fiscal policies that gives financial stability, and developed the philosophy of diversification that offers the utmost to our clients.”

Client service was a key component of Mr. Dickerson’s philosophy – and it remains so today.

A New Era: Energy Services - ISFSI, Substations, Environmental Remediation and Transmission

As components of America’s energy infrastructure are modernized and updated or decommissioned, efforts require a very specific order of operations to occur. Realizing the great need of this industry, Dickerson has positioned itself to utilize its expertise around the country. In particular, our teams serve as expert Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI) contractors and have performed other numerous energy-related construction efforts through completion.

We have been responsible for the efficient completion of numerous energy facility construction efforts that include sub-stations, site excavations, drainage system improvements, roadway development, transmission construction, ISFSI facilities, Security Operation Center (SOC) and other overall design improvements. In addition to this experience, we understand the stringent safety needs of the energy community and adhere to a strict code of conduct that keeps our teams, clients, and job sites running safely all day every day.

With an eye towards the future, Dickerson’s goal is to remain the premier contractor in the energy construction sector by completing projects in the most safe, efficient and productive manner.
