Our History

In 2013, Rueben Gardner returned home to Bremerton, Washington, after 12 years of active-duty Army service. He found the transition to civilian life to be more difficult than anticipated. Eventually, Rueben teamed up with his Navy veteran brother, Leland, to pursue his own venture.

The brothers had grown up performing construction work with their grandfather and decided to build their own construction company from the ground up. Marwood General Construction was finally born and named after their grandfather, Marwood “Red” Bingham who spent his entire life in marine construction.

Today, Marwood General Construction is a reputable, family-run business that the Gardner brothers couldn’t be more proud of. They look forward to growing their venture and honoring their grandfather’s legacy for years to come.
