About Byrne

Our History

Thos. S. Byrne, Ltd. was founded in Fort Worth in 1923 by Thomas Sneed Byrne, a native Texan and a graduate of Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Much of the Fort Worth skyline has been shaped by Byrne, from the original Firestone Station, Montgomery Ward’s Building, The Fort Worth Club, Pier One Headquarters to the award winning world class Amon Carter and Kimbell Art Museums in the cultural district.

Byrne is now in its third generation of management under the direction of John Avila, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer. Under Avila's successful leadership, Byrne has taken almost a century of building experience into the twenty-first century, utilizing new technologies in construction to build projects that exemplify the highest standards the industry has to offer.
