Over the course of its history, Grinder, Taber & Grinder has built a number of the city’s notable facilities: FedEx World Headquarters, Acura of Memphis, Lexus of Memphis, Presbyterian Day School, The Paul Barret Jr. Library at Rhodes College, 6000 and 6060 Poplar Buildings, Second Presbyterian Church, Lakecrest Office Park, Moriah Woods Office Park, Distriplex Center, Willow Lake Business Park, and the Shelby County Criminal Justice Center. And though the complex projects the company has completed are noteworthy, Grinder, Taber & Grinder takes its greatest pride in the client relationships built during their construction. By focusing on making the construction process as simple as possible, solving problems immediately with a family management team, and consistently honoring its commitments, the company has generated a wealth of repeat customers who are comfortable doing business on a handshake.
