Universal Utilities was established in Seattle, WA in 1962 by Jerry Bold.  Jerry had recently migrated to the Seattle area from Garrison, North Dakota. Jerry found abundant work opportunities and by 1963 recruited his brother in law, Al Zahnow to be his partner.  By the early 1970's Jerry and Al's younger brothers joined the company, helping to grow the business taking advantage of the tremendous growth in the Puget Sound area.


By 1977, due to skyrocketing growth in the Seattle area and with Jerry and Al's assistance, Buck Zahnow, Stu Bold, Charlie Bold and Steve Legg founded a new company called Land Construction Co.  This new company concentrated on private subdivisions and commercial projects while Jerry and Al continued Universal Utilitiies working primarily in the public works market.  In 1985 shortly before Jerry and Al retired Universal Utilities and Land Construction merged to become Universal Land Construction Co.!


Since 1985 Universal Land Construction Co. has focused primarily on private subdivision and commercial work, entering the public works market when local development activity slows.  Today, with the help of one of the most diverse and experienced workforces in the industry Jim and Steve Bold own and operate the company.
