CEO, Big-D Construction



Modesty. Restraint. Tenacity. Those three adjectives perfectly epitomize Jack’s persona. Suddenly it becomes even more obvious why Big-D has been named one of the nation’s Top 100 Contractors. Jack’s 32 year career has been focused on innovation, teambuilding and growth. You see, it all starts at the top. 

It’s been more than four decades since Jack sat on a hand-carved bench in the corner of his grandfather’s construction office, sipping from a frosty-cold can of root beer and watching intently as the respected contractor belted-out directions to his team of loyal craftsmen. Livingood recalls, “I remember thinking, he’s got the best job in the whole world.”

That job is now Jack’s.Jack's Bio


President, Big-D Construction


A company’s persona reflects that of its leadership. If the Big-D persona is one of passion for your project, Rob Moore is the fire that stokes our corporate furnace. It’s a furnace that has grown from $2 million to nearly $1 billion in revenues since Rob joined the company in 1976.

Under Rob’s leadership, the company has expanded from a respectable local contractor to a serious player on the regional and national stage. His gift for inspiring and motivating others continues to spur Big-D’s progress. In fact, the company’s future burns brightly because of Rob’s intense desire to put a satisfied smile on each client’s face.Rob's Bio


Senior Vice President


Since 1974, Dale Satterthwaite’s leadership has been an integral part of Big-D’s growth and success. Throughout his impressive career, he has successfully led hundreds of extraordinary projects while setting the standard for leadership excellence at Big-D. In 1995, Satterthwaite accepted a two-year assignment, providing on-site leadership for the Scott M. Matheson Courts Complex (the largest project undertaken by the State of Utah since the State Capitol). Satterthwaite completed this $68 million project on-time and below the original budget.  The Courts Complex has since received national recognition as a prototype for excellence in the Design/Build process - and making Satterthwaite the prototype for leadership excellence at Big-D.Dale's Bio


Senior Vice President


There are two undeniable facts about shortsightedness: 1) It can’t be treated with corrective lenses; and 2) It has no place in Big-D. Good thing Forrest McNabb epitomizes its polar opposite.

His long-view approach to the construction process begins even before the relationship does, and doesn’t end until we have a completed project and an extremely satisfied client. From demanding painstakingly thorough estimates to creatively exploring and recommending more cost-effective alternatives, Forrest’s business philosophy is centered on performance. After all, if a completed project doesn’t result in a positive reference or letter of recommendation, we’ve failed. And failure isn’t a word in Forrest McNabb’s vocabulary.Forrest's Bio
