Moving & Shaping the Earth. Loving What You Do.

When does a construction company become something more? When it connects to its community and builds strong trusted partnerships meant to last. Founded in 2003, Central Road & Utility, LTD became a construction firm based on the values of responsibility, innovation, community, and integrity. In addition to a killer set of values, CRU President, Robert Martinez, also encourages a culture of simplicity that resonates from their client and project processes to community partnerships and even their website design. Across the board, CRU has a strong cultural trait from which other organizations could learn.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”5/6″][vc_column_text]

Paving The Road Ahead

Founder, El Patron, the big cheese. These are only a few adjectives used by the crew at Central Road & Utility to describe their president, Robert Martinez. With a B.S. in civil engineering and an MBA, Martinez joined the construction industry in 1997 as a project manager in and around Austin, Texas. After six years of planning, budgeting, and directing projects, the economic rainy day blues of the early 2000s set in and Robert was left out in the cold – jobless.

With plans drafted and financial backing secured, Central Road and Utility was built. Over a decade later, his company has experienced considerable growth and success much of which can be attributed to sound decisions Martinez has made along the way.

In the beginning, CRU, Ltd. was mainly a subdivision contractor, however, in 2007, they expanded into Plant projects, which included pump stations and lift stations for surrounding municipalities. Today CRU, Ltd. is a company that has the capability to complete complex plant projects, city projects, site work, and subdivisions.

Believing in a quality product at a fair price that provides a safe work environment for their employees and the community, CRU’s mission is to approach all projects as a partnership between the Owner, the Engineer, and the Contractor creating a solution driven project that produces a win for all parties involved.

Keeping It Simple

“Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.” – Steve Jobs

A Rube Goldberg machine is a deliberately over engineered contraption made to perform a simple task in a complicated fashion.

Probably not. The team at Central Road & Utility tackle your most complex of projects with the elegance of their simple process design getting the job done more efficiently and in words that anyone can understand every step of the way.

From site preparation to utility distribution, CRU assists with projects during any stage of construction. As experts in the field, they are truly able to keep the process simple with their five-step process:

If ever there were a company that exuded such qualities, it would have to be Central Road & Utility.

Service to the Community

“True success comes when everyone focuses on the bigger picture and here, the bigger picture isn’t just about doing our job—it’s about making an impact in our community.” — CRU Website

With a page on their site dedicated solely to Community Service, Central Road & Utility makes it clear that they strive to be an integral part of their community. With Robert Martinez serving as the Board President of the River City Youth Foundation, he leads his team at CRU in making service a priority.
