Our History

Rust Construction was founded in 1920 by Robert "Doc" Rust when the Rust family farm was subdivided to create portions of the old Alexandria, VA neighborhoods of Rosemont, Braddock Heights, Timber Branch, Mt. Ida, and Beverly Hills. The company has served the community through the Great Depression, World War II, and most recently the Recession in 2008.


Tom Rust Sr. has run Rust Construction since 1973. Today, his sons, Tom Rust Jr. and Sam Rust, are part of the company leadership. Throughout our history of service, our team of experienced tradesmen and project managers has upheld the tradition of exceptional workmanship and responsible construction of commercial and residential projects.
