Carter Mackey


Carter has been working in the commercial construction industry since 1996. After managing projects for large national and regional firms, he founded Tekton in 2015 to focus on design-assist and design-build projects. His experience prepared him perfectly for Tekton’s mix of historic renovation, multi-family, office/retail, and medical. Unlike most commercial builders, Carter and the Tekton team prefer to be hands-on, working closely with their clients to bring dream projects to life. Carter graduated from the Virginia Military Institute with a degree in Civil Engineering, and received his MBA from the University of Richmond.

Sam Jabarian

Project Manager

Sam’s first job in real estate was as a construction site manager. After getting his Master’s in Construction Management from the University of Birmingham (UK), and then a Master of Science from Virginia Commonwealth University, Sam leveraged his degrees and five years of real-world experience to join Tekton as our Project Engineer. He’s now a master of cost controls, prepares construction schedules, and oversees project processes. He ensures our projects are completed when we promised them, and cost what we quoted you.
