Our History

Since our founding in 1958, Atlas has built commercial projects in all geographical locations of Oklahoma and the Midwest Region.

Atlas Construction Group was first known as The Atlas Organization. Founded
by Calvin Garrett.  His son, Jim Garrett, took the reins in 1988 and abbreviated the company name to its acronym, TAO. Atlas continued to build a solid reputation for quality buildings and client satisfaction. This steadfast business model persevered through industry highs and lows, evolving as the industry grew to embrace today’s technological advances and ethical ideals. Originating in Oklahoma City, a second office was opened in Tulsa to accommodate growth and geographical construction needs. Atlas re-branded in 2003 to Atlas General Contractors. New partners, Mike Owen and Matthew Knight took the helm. In 2016, Atlas began doing business as Atlas Construction Group.

Atlas has had the privilege of constructing a few iconic buildings, including the Oklahoma City Founder’s Tower and the 1964 Founder’s Bank, renowned for its Mid-Century architecture. Atlas has proudly built schools all over the state of Oklahoma and considers this an area of industry expertise.

Atlas Construction Group values building a strong team and staying connected to the community.  In addition, the Atlas team continues to focus on quality, budget-conscious, timely delivery of projects.
