Robert S. Biscan
A 1973 Graduate of Pennsylvania State University with a BS in Civil Engineering, Bob Biscan has built a company that continues to be recognized as one of Greater Nashville’s top 100 companies. He got his start in construction working with Firestone as a Project Manager over new builds and renovations. From there, he moved to Barge, Waggoner, Sumner & Cannon where through his hard work and dedication, he earned his engineering license.
Bob possesses extensive expertise in all types of construction, spending ten years just in engineering design working on all sizes of projects. He brings immense value to the company in his ability to interview, train, and build a successful brand and team. He keeps an eye on projects through constant communication with team leadership to manage risk, monitor safety, and maintain quality.
He calls Brentwood, Tennessee home, but enjoys spending ample amounts of time in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. He visits often with his two children, and loves spoiling his three grandchildren. In his free time, he is an avid boater, motorcycle enthusiast, sports car collector, and gardener. He has a passion for traveling the world, and has been to many exotic places. One of his favorite trips was riding his Harley throughout Europe, visiting seven different countries.
Bob has savored his role in helping develop Nashville, Middle Tennessee, and surrounding areas. He has an entrepreneurial spirit, and has been a huge part of the drive of this company since its founding in 1981.
Williamson County native, Jim graduated Belmont University’s School of Business in 1987. Son and grandson to home builders, Jim has been in construction his entire life. He started his career in the grading and utility business, joining Biscan Construction in 1988. Jim gained experience on a wide variety of projects, advancing quickly through roles of increasing opportunity to become a partner 8 years later. From then, he ran day-to-day operations through his strategic planning, dedication, and motivation, and has helped the company grow to the nine-figure operation it is today.
Jim and his wife Kate have two sons and two grandchildren. Their passions include horses, western big game hunting, skiing, wine collecting, spending time on their working farms, and spoiling their grandbabies. Jim is notoriously known for being a family man, and this largely translates into how he runs and operates Biscan Construction.
Jim is always accessible to employees and clients and maintains an open-door policy throughout the company. “I’ve always strongly believed that to succeed in this business, it is very important to treat all employees and subcontractors as equal partners on every project. Lead, but listen to everyone’s input. Constantly seek out what can be done to make everyone’s tasks more efficient and profitable, and help to make that happen.”
