1010 Post Construction, LLC

Royal McCargo
Full-Scope Construction Clean-Up Services

Ever wonder where all the debris from a construction site goes or who cleans up after a job is completed? Royal McCargo knows. The owner of 1010 Post Construction wants to provide fluidity and convenience to his clients, ultimately saving them money and time by delivering a valuable service for residential construction sites. The name “1010” stands for ‘all clear’ in the emergency services industry, and it is Royal’s goal to provide that same result on all of the projects he’s working on, from new home construction builds to smaller renovations. Royal is the father of two daughters Jasmine and Mia. They were both born on the 10th of their respective months, which provides the double meaning and inspiration for 1010.

By incorporating his love for family into his company’s name, it will allow him to keep his values in the forefront and never lose track of his vision and goals for his business.
