History of Excellence

Our Story

Richardson Construction, LLC is a locally owned, family operated full service construction company. At Richardson Construction, we are not only building and renovating homes— We are “Building Higher Expectations.”
Since 2004, we have been honored to serve Blount Count, TN and the surrounding areas in their construction needs. As active members in our church and community, our family is proud to be part of East Tennessee. Here is a little more about me and our story. My wife Becky and I have been married for over 20 years. We have 3 beautiful children and a wonderful grown foster daughter and her family.

We are both long term Blount County residents and graduates from Heritage High School in Maryville, Tennessee. After receiving my BA in History and teaching for several years, I felt stirred to take my career in another direction. My construction knowledge and skills began their development early on in childhood as I watched my father work hard in various facets of construction. He eventually became one of the area’s most sought after craftsmen. So with Becky’s encouragement and building on my mother and father’s foundation of hard work and an eye for detail, I decided the building industry was indeed my professional calling.

With the Lord’s help and a great team, I have seen our company grow that calling into an impactful Construction Firm with over 15 full time employees and longstanding relationships with the highest quality trade contractors. Today, we are one of Blount County's largest and most admired home builders. With conscientious employees and multifaceted skills, our Team here at Richardson can fashion your vision into reality. We are grateful to be serving our community and at the same time do what we love to do. Our Team is committed to making every project a success and we look forward to teaming up to meet all your construction and remodeling needs.
We enjoyed our experience with Chester and his talented team at Richardson Construction.

When people asked who we went with, We got almost this exact same response every time, “You picked the best builder in the area.
JAson & Jacci, 2023
There is absolutely no better feeling than working with people you trust, people of integrity and genuinely good people. On top of that, their craftsmanship is without comparison. My mountain home is more than I ever dreamed possible and that is 100% due to Chester Richardson and the outstanding individuals at Richardson Construction.

Here's the real question you always want to ask and know. "Would we use Richardson again?" Our answer is a resounding YES! Not a question in the world.

Through their expertise, we were able to transform our building to match our company's branding with a timber frame design. Chester and his team managed the project with great care, effective communication, transparent costs and a remarkable attention to detail.

Working with the team for product selections was seamless and their suggestions on doors and the perfect trim options were the difference between standard and custom build team.

We were impressed Day One when Richardson came out to the property to assess the landscape and how to best orient the house. From the start of clearing the property through all phases of construction we were continually updated via an online daily log, with photos.
