Collaborating with Amazon: A Construction Journey

Behind the Scenes with J.E. Shurden Construction


At J.E. Shurden Construction, we pride ourselves on being more than just a civil construction company. We are the architects of progress, the sculptors of landscapes, and the guardians of precision. Our commitment to excellence has led us to collaborate with some of the biggest names in the industry, including Amazon.

The Unseen Partnership

While our collaboration with Amazon may not be direct, it is no less significant. As of January 31st, 2024, we have been working alongside the original contractor, Birdsong Construction, on a project that will shape the future of our community. Our role? To move earth with precision, ensuring that every foundation is solid, every drainage system efficient, and every detail meticulously executed.

Erosion Control and Demolition

Our expertise extends beyond traditional construction. Erosion control is our shield against the forces of nature, safeguarding the integrity of the land. We implement innovative erosion control measures, preventing soil loss and preserving the environment. Whether it’s stabilizing slopes or installing sediment barriers, we take pride in our role as stewards of the earth.

And when it comes to demolition, we are the masters of controlled chaos. Buildings may come down, but safety and efficiency remain our top priorities. Our crews dismantle structures with surgical precision, recycling materials whenever possible. It’s a dance of destruction and creation, and we execute it flawlessly.

First and Last on Every Job Site

At J.E. Shurden Construction, we arrive early and leave late. We are the first boots on the ground, surveying the terrain, analyzing blueprints, and strategizing our approach. Our commitment doesn’t waver as the sun sets; we stay until the last nail is driven, the last beam secured. It’s not just about completing a project; it’s about leaving a legacy.

The Amazon Connection

Birdsong Construction’s collaboration with Amazon brings us into the fold indirectly. As they build the infrastructure that will power Amazon’s operations, we lay the groundwork. Our bulldozers hum, our excavators dig, and our team works tirelessly to ensure that every inch of soil is ready for what’s to come. It’s a silent partnership, but its impact reverberates through the soil and steel.


So, the next time you see an Amazon package arrive at your doorstep, know that behind the scenes, J.E. Shurden Construction played a part. We move earth with precision, shaping the landscape, and collaborating with giants. Our slogan isn’t just words; it’s a promise: “Precision in Every Shovel, Excellence in Every Brick.”

As the sun rises on another construction site, we stand ready—first and last—because progress doesn’t wait, and neither do we.
