Stacks Image 392
Gibbs & Register, Inc. (G&R) was founded in 1990 by John Gibbs, Gary Register, and Joanne Register. John Gibbs, the company CEO, is a graduate of Auburn University with a degree in civil engineering and is a registered professional engineer in the State of Florida. Gary Register, Owner of J Register Company in Jacksonville, Fl, is a graduate of the University of Florida in building construction and is a certified general contractor in the State of Florida. Joanne Register, Owner of J Register Company in Jacksonville, Fl, is a graduate from Valdosta State University with a degree in Accounting. After 20 loyal years of service, the Registers have retired from G&R.
After two years of performing primarily engineering services and some building construction, G&R began in 1992 focusing primarily on civil and site work construction services for municipalities in Central Florida. That has been the company’s strategic thrust to the present time. G&R has performed hundreds of projects over the past 20 years for key clients such as Orange County, City of Orlando, Seminole County, City of Altamonte Springs, City of Ocoee, City of Winter Garden, City of Kissimmee, City of Longwood, Lake County, Brevard County, school boards of Orange, Volusia and Brevard Counties, FDOT, City of Lakeland, Polk County, Hillsborough County and the City of Tampa. In addition to work for the above clients, G&R has also performed as a subcontractor for numerous nationally-recognized construction management and Design-Build firms such as Jacobs/Sverdrup, Turner Construction, Centex-Rooney, The Haskell Company, Archer Western and Clark Florida Builders. All the above clients are repeat business clients.

In 2004, the company established an office in Orange Park, Florida. From this office, G&R has completed projects for FDOT, the City of Jacksonville, the Jacksonville Electric Authority (JEA), St. John’s County and the City of St. Augustine. In 2010, G&R established an office in Kenner, Louisiana and are currently completing the N. Perimeter Rd. Improvements project for the City of New Orleans at the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.

G&R continues to focus on high-quality construction services that are delivered in a timely fashion. The company emphasizes safe construction practices and has strived to make the jobsites safe working environments for the public and all employees. John Gibbs’ philosophy is that “We want to treat our employees, our clients, our suppliers and our subcontractors the way we would want to be treated individually.” The implementation of this philosophy in the way G&R goes about business has resulted in a low turnover rate in the office and field. Thus resulting in the high-quality services that the company strives for and the repeat business generated year after year.

Some of our key areas of expertise are lift stations, water and wastewater treatment plants, urban roadways and streets, school sites, specialty projects using unique geo-textile materials, airports, parks and recreational facilities, multi-purpose trails (linear parks), continuing services contracts for sidewalks, curbs, driveways and utilities projects and design-build services.
