With more than 30 years in the construction industry and another 20+ years specializing in the foundation support industry, Bill McCown continues a long-standing family tradition.
For generations, the McCown family has worked in the masonry field of construction. In 1986, Bill proudly took “the family business” in a new and successful direction by founding Power Lift Foundation Systems, and growing it into the successful company it is today.
In addition to his design talents, Bill has cultivated his extensive knowledge of foundations, foundation failures, and foundation repair techniques and systems through a combination of continuing education programs, equipment and technology seminars and in-field experience.
For more than two and a half decades, he has been recognized as an industry expert and has been called on to provide expert testimony in foundation litigation cases on numerous occasions.
Throughout the course of his career, Bill has been published twice concerning foundation investigation, failure and repair. Under his leadership, Power Lift has been featured in one of the nation’s most recognized engineering periodicals, Engineering News Record Magazine.
Throughout the company’s history, Bill has led the charge for excellence in the engineering aspect of Power Lift’s projects and equipment. Accordingly, he has formed strong alliances with some of the most prominent engineering firms in the southern and central United States.
Due to his solid working relationships with these firms, Power Lift can proudly say that there has never been a failure or call-back on any of our commercial projects.
Coming from a close construction family, Bill has always put a great emphasis on relationships — both personal and professional. His wife and two children come first, and this attitude extends to Power Lift Employees. In fact, this philosophy is what makes Power Lift less like a business and more like a family.
Today, Power Lift Foundation Systems is one of the leading companies in the field thanks to Bill’s talents, knowledge and leadership.
