L.F. RooneyManhattan is a family company of enduring strength and a pioneering spirit. That spirit drives us to continually find smarter ways to build for the benefit of our clients, our work, our team members and our communities.

In 1896, Laurence H. Rooney launched Manhattan Construction Company in what was then Oklahoma Territory. When Oklahoma gained statehood in 1907, Manhattan was the first company to be incorporated in the new State, holding Corporation record number one.

Today, Manhattan is one of the largest privately-held construction companies in the country. Current operations extend through the Southwest and Eastern regions of the United States, Mexico, and the Caribbean.

The success of our projects is achieved by the hard work and expertise of our team members. No matter the delivery method or combination of services that you choose, we build excellence and trust.  It’s a package deal.

Manhattan is the flagship company under Manhattan Construction Group.

Manhattan is a family of builders committed to developing teams who do the right thing for our projects, our clients and each other.
