H.B. Fleming was founded in 1955 by Howard B. Fleming and Ray Erickson with a focus on pile driving and marine work. In 1993, Dean Sciaraffa and John Linscott III purchased the company, expanding the scope of services to include design-build solutions for excavation support systems, cofferdams, ground improvement, subaqueous pipelines, retaining walls, and drilled shafts. Today, H.B. Fleming is owned by John “Scotty” Linscott IV and run by a team of project managers, engineers, and support staff who strive to maintain the highest standard of quality as we continue to grow in size and scope.

H.B. Fleming has earned a reputation for quality, cost-effective geotechnical design-build solutions. Our ability to rapidly mobilize equipment and problem-solve has led to many long-term client and partner relationships.

We would be nowhere without our skilled workforce, which has grown to approximately 70 AWS-certified welders, NCCCO-licensed crane operators, and experienced pile driving foremen. Most of our field leadership began their careers here as welders or laborers. That kind of longevity is like gold.
