Wilson-Covington Construction Company was incorporated in 1947. It was the outgrowth of a long association between Jack Covington, Burke Wilson, and Reuben Wilson. The company was originally formed to develop and construct multifamily apartments complexes, the first of these being Ardmore Terrace and Cloverdale Apartments in the late 1940s Its property management began concurrently with the construction of these projects and today Wilson-Covington manages nearly 1,600 residential units for various owners as well as 440,000 square feet of commercial space.

The company has grown to become one of the premier general contractors in the Winston-Salem area. Through the 1960s and 1970s the company continued building multifamily units, shopping centers, banks, freestanding commercial space, schools, car dealerships, churches, government buildings, and high-end single-family dwellings including a number of historic reconstructions in Old Salem.

This building boom continued into the 1980s when Jack Covington began to focus more on the property management end of the business. Clay V. Ring, Jr. took over in 1995. Clay began at Wilson-Covington in 1954 and acted as an estimator, project manager and Vice-President prior to assuming leadership of the company. His interest and knowledge in construction has led to a rebirth of the construction side of the business. Since 1995 the company has steadily increased the number of construction projects completed annually. The entrance of a new generation into the leadership in the form of Clay’s grandson, Hayes Wauford, has further infused a growth in both the construction and property management aspects of the company.
