With over 34 years of experience in the paving and concrete construction field, Ernie is one of Atlanta’s most experienced paving and concrete experts. Under his leadership and entrepreneurial foresight, he’s grown Atlanta Paving and Concrete Construction to be one of the premier providers of asphalt and concrete services in the State of Georgia and the Southeastern United States. In 1996, Ernie commenced operations and has subsequently grown the enterprise over 22 seasons, currently doing business in 26 states and over 275 cities across the United States. He has even conducted operations in Canada and Ecuador, making Atlanta Paving and Concrete one of the few United Sates companies doing work internationally. In 2015, Ernie also founded Ernest T. Lopez Company, an independent construction company with a primary focus on large construction projects. A graduate of the Riverside Military Academy, Ernie’s quest for greatness began at young age. Ernie was only 18 years old when he began his career. This unique start allowed him to learn about every aspect of the business. From having the ability to operate every piece of construction machinery, to estimating, bidding, and project management; Ernie continues to manage the entire enterprise from start to finish. This gives him a unique perspective of the business, and truly embodies the company slogan of “Where Quality Still Counts”. In addition to Ernie’s responsibilities at Atlanta Paving and Concrete Construction and ET Lopez Company, he was recently elected to the Board of Directors at Riverside Military Academy. In this role, he chairs the Buildings and Ground’s working committee; as well as has an active role on the Board. A true philanthropist, Ernie continues his community outreach helping many organizations and individuals in and out of the Atlanta metro area. Ernie currently resides in Lilburn, Georgia with his wife Donna.
