Parsons Steel Builders offers both steel fabrication and steel erection services. Steel is one of the most widely used materials in construction due to its versatility, strength, and value compared to other construction materials. Structural steel fabrication is the process of cutting, bending, shaping, and assembling steel to create a wide variety of products.


The steel fabrication process requires careful planning, extreme precision, and thorough knowledge of the properties of steel.

Parsons Steel Builders’ focus on steel erection gives us valuable insight into the safest and most efficient way to construct the structural steel portion of the project. Our approach to every project is to partner with the general contractor and project owner towards the common goal of a successful project completed safely, on time and on budget, one of which every member of the team can be proud. Every Parsons employee—from estimator and project manager to supervisor and skilled iron workers—view themselves as part of the project team.


Parsons Steel Erectors, Inc. was founded in Tucson in 1972 by Charlie Parsons as a structural steel erection company serving local fabricators. In 1983, Charlie and his son Joe Parsons, along with Tom Glenn, expanded the company by adding a steel fabrication shop, making Parsons Steel a full-service structural steel company with the ability to both fabricate and erect structural steel.
