Jordan-Wilcomb Construction, Inc. is believed to be Idaho’s oldest construction firm still in operation today. Records show that when Boise began issuing building permits in 1910, Jordan-Wilcomb was actively building single family residences. Housing continued as its main endeavor until 1924 when St Joseph school, on Fort Street in Boise, became its first commercial project. The original partners of the firm were J.0. Jordan and his son J. Cecil Jordan, operating under the name of J.0. Jordan Construction and later becoming Jordan & Son Construction.

 

In 1948, J. Richard Jordan, son of Cecil Jordan, and Richard P. Wilcomb, son-in-law of Cecil Jordan, joined the firm and it became Jordan-Wilcomb Company, a partnership. In 1979, Tim R. Wilcomb, son of Richard Wilcomb, became a partner in the firm. In 1982, the company structure was modified, resulting in Jordan-Wilcomb Construction, Inc. as the construction division and Jordan-Wilcomb Company, a partnership, as the real estate holding and development branch. In 1986, Bill T. Mooney, Jr., son-in-law of Richard Jordan, became a principal in Jordan-Wilcomb Construction, Inc.  Tim Wilcomb and Bill Mooney became the majority owners of Jordan-Wilcomb Construction, Inc. in 1995. T.J. Wilcomb, son of Tim Wilcomb, joined the corporation as a partner in 2012, becoming the 5th generation in one of Idaho’s most accomplished construction firms.

Jordan-Wilcomb Construction, Inc. has been and remains engaged primarily in commercial construction in the southern Idaho area, having completed thousands of projects over the last 100+ years. Jordan-Wilcomb has maintained their office at the same location, 406 South Sixth Street in Boise, for more than 70 years.
