In 1956 Mr. Robert Edens began Edens Construction to provide water control solutions for the blossoming agricultural community in the glades area. From day one of providing pump stations and culverts for the agricultural interests in the area, Mr. Edens’ focus on integrity, quality, reputation, and community quickly led to a business with established success which allowed the purchase of the South Bay property in the early 1970s which remains the home to Edens Construction today. With the purchase of the South Bay property also came the need to expand the services that Edens provided, so roadway work, paving, and utility installations quickly followed. As the provided services expanded, so to did the Edens team with the next generation of ownership coming on board as Mrs. Brenda Edens Tyson and Mr. Dennis Miller joined the Edens team in the 1970s. Under Mrs. Tyson’s and Mr. Miller’s ownership, Edens remained a pillar of the community moving into the 2000s. As the economic downturn of the mid 2000s set in, Edens adapted and evolved to the times through a renewed focus on public works projects; in the educational (Palm Beach County School District), public services (Martin County Fire Rescue), and environmental remediation (USACE and SFWMD) arenas. The new focus on public works projects also coincided with the addition of the third generation of Edens to join the team, when Mr. Joshua M. Crawford finalized his education at the University of Florida and decided to come back to the glades to continue and strengthen the legacy that his grandfather began so many years ago. As Edens Construction Co., Inc. now celebrates our 65th year in business, pride is the word that summarizes all that we have accomplished. Proud of the work that we perform. Proud of happy customers and our impeccable reputation. Proud to have been a provider of good jobs and a member of the glades community for 65 years. Proud of the work that we do every day and proud of the name EDENS and what it means. We will carry this pride as Mr. Crawford takes the next step of ownership in the Edens family and as we push forward to 65 more years.
