About Our Business


Concept Masonry is a commercial masonry contractor that operates in the Greater Triangle area of North Carolina. Our customers and clients seek us out based on our honesty, integrity, high quality work, and competitive pricing.

Concept Masonry, Incorporated was started in April 1994 by James Gurley. James had a vision of becoming not only the best, but also the most respected masonry contractor in the Triangle area. With the help of his two sons, James Jr. and Michael, James was able to make his vision a reality. James Sr. has been in the construction industry for well over 35 years. Combined, our Owners, Project Managers, and Superintendents bring over 125 years of experience to the brick mason and construction fields.

Concept Masonry currently employs an average of 40 employees. We have 3 Estimators, 3 project Managers, 4 Field Superintendents, and we run about 4 crews of 8-10 masons and laborers. As the dynamics of the jobs and projects change, the structuring of crews also changes. We strive to meet the expectations of all of our clients at all times.

We perform work under ANSI Division 4 Masonry and have completed Office Buildings, Retail Centers, Institutional Facilities, Distributional and Industrial Buildings, and Multi-family Housing.
