Babcock Construction Company was founded in 2005, when Bobby Babcock and Josh Layton formed the corporation in hometown Arkansas City, Kansas. After retiring from the U.S. Air Force, Babcock then retired from the United States Postal Service as a result of a service-connected disability. The result is a management team combining Babcock’s lifetime of service at the Civil Engineering Squadron operations level with Layton’s extensive estimating and project management experience from the perspectives of the owner, the designer, and the contractor — providing federal agencies and prime contractors with the option of quality SDVOB participation.
