Making Our Mark


Goodwin Brothers owns, operates and maintains one of the highest quality fleets of earthmoving equipment in the industry.

Because of the earthmoving demands within our other sectors, Goodwin Brothers has developed capabilities to excel at larger and more complex earthmoving projects. These projects include landfills, earthen dams and levee construction.

Across all of our sectors, we’ve completed excavations up to 180-feet deep and projects of over one million cubic yards.

Our Earthmoving endeavors began in the late 1980’s when we were awarded the contract for Springfield, Missouri’s new wastewater treatment plant. To construct the plant, we first had to move a landfill. Since then, we’ve moved millions of yards of material with projects ranging from slope repairs to moving more than a million yards of material to construct a landfill.

Over the last 30 plus years of earthmoving, we have developed the knowledge and resources to tackle any challenge. We continue to improve by fully embracing all the latest that technology has to offer. GPS machine controls give our operators the confidence to run more safely and more accurately than ever before, while our Drone technology allows us to map an entire site and have the information to our clients in a matter of hours instead of the weeks it took in the past.


Some of our larger and more complex projects are highlighted below. Click on each photo for a more in depth look of the project stats.

Goodwin Brothers Construction worked double shifts and weekends to offset weather delays to help meet a challenging construction schedule while maintaining excellent quality of construction. Goodwin exceeded our corporate goal of Diverse Subcontractor involvement. Goodwin’s construction supervisor, safety supervisor, subcontractors, equipment operators and laborers worked together to achieve a very successful project.

There are several goals that MSD tries to accomplish with each project we undertake.
