About Us

Our Story

With deep ties to Durham construction, starting with George W. Kane Construction in 1974 and then Mixon Construction in 1988, Jack Moore founded Gateway Building Company in 2013. He wanted to develop a construction company that was based on its people, collaboration instead of hierarchy, and where he could hang up his suit and wear his jeans every day! Jack wanted to be in the heart of Durham and located the headquarters downtown. Gateway was THE downtown contractor, growing with the city, and has now expanded to the Triangle and its tertiary markets including RTP, Chatham, Person, Wake, Alamance, Johnston, Orange, Franklin, Moore, and Vance Counties.

Gateway was at the forefront of creating a boutique, friendly, open, honest team that would take on creative projects. Client focused. Value focused.

Our Evolution

High visibility jobs in downtown enabled us to grow quickly in multiple markets. Whether it was restaurants like Nanasteak and Pie Pushers, Institutional jobs with Duke University, or many of the downtown storefronts in the Triangle, Gateway established a strong reputation. Through an entirely organic referral system, job number and size increased steadily year over year. Our work began to speak for itself as we grew; repeat clients and developers followed along. We've experienced a vast range of project types and learned how to tackle each and every one.

Our Future

The mission stays the same - honest, value-driven, high-quality work. We work with a diverse clientele from local business to national brands, providing excellent customer service and refreshing, honest, quality work.
