Holt Brothers Construction

Our Story

Terrence and Torry Holt, both of whom were football stars at NC State University and in the National Football League, founded Holt Brothers Construction in 2007. Upon their retirement from the NFL, they returned to Raleigh to live with their families, give back to the community, and start the next phase of their lives.

With an interest in real estate, they entered the construction industry and absorbed A&M Construction, a long-established Raleigh firm. As a result, they acquired a respected group of employees who each have 30+ years experience in the construction field.

Since then, the company has won several major projects in partnership with other Construction Manager at Risk firms. These include the $65 million City of Raleigh Critical Public Safety Center, the $35 million Reynolds Coliseum renovation / Walk of Fame project at NC State,  and the $28 million Raleigh Union Station project. Other project wins include the new student residence hall at Winston-Salem State University and the classroom building at Wake Tech’s new Research Triangle Park campus.

Award-winning projects on the Holt Brothers resume include the D.H. Hill Library renovation at NC State University and the Foot & Ankle Associates of North Carolina medical office building. Coupled with the A&M experience, the firm has completed numerous office buildings and more than 1 million square feet of up-fits in the area.

The Future

Holt Brothers Construction has grown strategically over the past two years and is well positioned in the marketplace. The firm is focused on projects that improve the quality of life for people in North Carolina and throughout the Southeast.

Terrence and Torry believe that construction is a natural fit for them because it’s all about teamwork, precision, focus and discipline – the same skills and commitment needed on the football field.

“We don’t want our legacy to be just what we accomplished on the football field,” says Terrence, who serves as president. “Our goal and ambition is to create a competitive, growing company that has the community’s best interests at heart.”
