Where We Have Been and Where We Are


Markham Contracting Co., Inc. opened for business November 1977 in Mike Markham Sr.’s Phoenix garage. 5 years and 3 moves later Markham moved to its location at 2108 W. Shangri-La Road where Markham resided for 14 years and grew its reputation of being a go to grading and paving contractor for commercial, residential and municipal builders in Arizona and Nevada.  In 1997 Markham needed to expand again and built its current office at 22820 N. 19th Avenue.

Since moving to 19th Avenue Markham began its self performance of wet utilities, invested in GPS throughout the grading, paving and utility operations and continues to invest in the future each and every day.

Markham continues to receive recognition as a leader in the construction industry for its safety, performance, ethics and commitment to the community.  Our commitment to responsible development in Arizona has lead to our growth and the enhanced  efficiency and coordination of every project enabling us to utilize our strong technical experience to further compliment our attitude of Integrity and Innovation.

Markham’s team has constructed more than 4,000 site civil projects in Arizona many you may remember:
