About PGC

In 1982, Mark and Shelley Peabody settled in Dripping Springs, Texas, where they founded and ran Peabody General Contractors for the next 36 years. During this time, PGC grew from just a couple of employees to over 100, working throughout Texas, including the City of Austin and the University of Texas. While Mark and Shelley officially retired in October 2018, when PGC joined the MCG Civil family, PGC is proud to carry on the legacy of the Peabodys every day.
