Founded in 1991 as Crawford-Smith Construction, Inc., the company originally focused on residential insurance repairs. Although it started off in the Memphis restoration market it soon expanded. In 1994, Dale Sharp became manager of the newly opened Nashville office. Then in 1997, the company made a concerted effort to leave residential and perform only commercial projects. Sharp was made a partner in 1998, and as a result, the firm changed to Crawford, Smith & Sharp, LLC. Since then, the business has continued to grow in size, capability, and areas of coverage.
In 2009, Sharp bought the business and made Dave Robbins a partner, forming Sharp & Robbins Construction, LLC. A lifelong veteran in the restoration industry, Robbins had been a project manager with the firm for 5 years before this transition. In 2008, structural engineering graduate, Chris Popwell joined the team as a project manager. As a result of his giftedness, hardwork and contributions, Popwell made partner in 2015. Consequently, the company became what it is today—Sharp, Robbins & Popwell, LLC.
