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 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. Adrian Figer joined Peabody General Contractors in November of 2000 while PGC was working on the Austin Convention Center Project. When the Peabodys retired and PGC joined the MCG Civil family, Adrian was named General Manager of Peabody General Contractors helping to merge the new management company with the Peabodys’ legacy.
