It's said necessity is the mother of invention and that is precisely why William A. Hazel invented the concept of “total site development”. It all stemmed from the notion that if you want something done right, do it yourself. Over the years, the company has created a legacy for doing things right because they can control all aspects of the project.

Our long list of repeat clients are a testament to the benefits of the total site development concept.

It all started with a little International TD6 bulldozer, and a couple of brothers who would do just about anything a customer needed – from clearing fence rows to digging out rocks. “We worked wherever we could get work”, recalled Mr. Hazel.

That was in the late 1950's. They got their first Caterpillar in the 1960's. As the business grew, it was time to be formally incorporated, and in 1964, William A. Hazel, Inc., was officially launched as a corporate citizen of Virginia. The work gradually evolved into the sewer and water business and the company grew from there.

We think Mr. Hazel would be thrilled to know that, in the 21st century, two (and sometimes three!) generations of employees have worked in the company he and his brother started.

Client Testimonial

Excellent work Hazel Team, thank you all for the strong push (to finish the paving).
It's no small thing when people rise to the occasion and do outstanding work, something I don't take for granted! Marden and crew did just that! He and his men deserve recognition for their hard work in repairing the dam breach on the retention pond at Arden Project.
I commend William A. Hazel for their land development work for The Retreat at Westfields in Chantilly, Virginia, especially during these COVID-19 challenged 12 months. We consider William A. Hazel a top-notch general contractor and recommend other Developers to contract with them.
