Real Estate: MARK HOURIGAN
FOUNDER AND CEO, HOURIGAN GROUP, RICHMOND
Construction and development firm Hourigan Group changes skylines across Virginia — from a new Hyatt Place on the Virginia Beach oceanfront opened this summer to a 20-story downtown Richmond headquarters completed for Dominion Energy Inc. in 2019. Hourigan Group also is behind Virginia’s tallest timber building, a Charlottesville office space anchored by Apex Clean Energy, which opened in April.
A graduate of Gettysburg College, Mark Hourigan moved to Richmond in 1982. He earned his MBA from the University of Richmond a few years later. After stints with Westinghouse and Galloway Corp., he founded Hourigan Group in 1993.
With nearly 30 years in business, Hourigan is council chair of GO Virginia Region 4’s GROW Capital Jobs Foundation and serves on the dean’s advisory board for Virginia Tech’s College of Architecture and Urban Studies. He’s also ChamberRVA’s immediate past chair.
Other notable Hourigan Group projects include the 17-story VCU Health Adult Outpatient Pavilion and Robins Stadium at the University of Richmond.
In 2021, Hourigan was named as Engineering News-Record’s mid-Atlantic contractor of the year. The outlet cited the firm’s 39% revenue growth through the pandemic to $466 million.
