VCC of Little Rock is a commercial contractor founded in 1987 by Gus Vratsinas, Ed DeMoss and Sam Alley. The move came after the bankruptcy of one-time Little Rock contracting giant Pickens-Bond Construction Co. where Vratsinas was a top executive.
VCC has recaptured the national reputation built by Pickens-Bond and grown to be recognized as the largest retail builder in the nation with total revenue of more than $425 million. Vratsinas left VCC in 2010 after selling his stake in the company two years earlier. He had turned the CEO duties over to Alley in 2004.
Alley owns VCC. His brother Essa is president of VCC, and brother Haitham is general manager of an affiliate, Diversified Materials & Handling.
A recent sampling of the company's Arkansas roster includes retail projects such as Pinnacle Hills Promenade in Rogers and Promenade at Chenal in west Little Rock; office buildings including the Arkansas FBI headquarters and Pavilion Centre in Little Rock; higher education including the Donaghey Aquatic Center at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and Student Village at Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, and medical such as Arkansas Heart Hospital in Little Rock and Conway Regional Medical Center.
