Your Partner in Providing On-Site Solutions
Family Owned and Operated Since 1988
Colonial Construction Materials, Inc. was founded by Timothy Branin in 1988. Equipped with a few trucks and a small installation crew, Tim and his team started supplying and installing geotextiles and erosion control products to contractors in Virginia.
A few years later, Tim’s brother Tommy and his mother Nancy joined in, making Colonial Construction Materials a true family business.
A Developing Industry
Over time, Colonial Construction Materials expanded to meet the demands of an evolving industry. An increase in environmental regulation correlated to an increase in construction regulation, specifically related to stormwater runoff and erosion control. Construction permitting and site inspections became stricter and the demand for effective products to control silt and sediment increased.
Response to Industry Changes
In response, Colonial vertically integrated operations and began manufacturing several site work products. We also expanded our geographical influence by supplying distributors from the Caribbean to Pennsylvania with environmental construction products.
In 2002, Colonial Construction Materials moved its headquarters to Oilville, Virginia. The 40,000 square foot facility includes a 6-acre yard which provides greater storage and manufacturing capabilities. The strategic location sits just west of Richmond, Virginia and has quick access to major interstates that connect us to the Mid-Atlantic region.
Colonial Construction Materials also has a branch office in Virginia Beach. This location includes a sales office, warehouse and large stock yard. The Virginia Beach location services customers in Southeast Virginia and the Carolinas.
Managing our own fleet allows us to control logistics, optimize routes and reduce lead times.
Customer Pick Up
Customers are welcome to pick up material at our Oilville and Virginia Beach warehouses.
Our dealers include landscape suppliers, garden centers, drainage and building suppliers.
Less than Truckload
When we need to ship material LTL, we negotiate low rates and short lead times.
COVID Restrictions for Customer Pick Ups
Customer Pick Ups continue to be permitted during COVID-19 restrictions, however, we are operating with adjusted protocols. Offices are restricted to employees only. We ask that customers place their orders over the phone and remain with their vehicle. Material will be loaded by a Colonial employee.
