James Shelton and Robert Shelton

Hailing from Washington, D.C., brothers James and Robert Shelton cut their teeth working in construction from the early 1960's to the mid-1970's.  Studying architecture at Howard University, James Shelton honed his passion for construction and began to work with Shelton and Sons - at the time his fathers construction company.

James and Robert's careers led them to work 40+ years for the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA). At DCRA the brothers started as sheeting and shoring inspectors; this propelled  James Shelton to management positions in several branches of the Building Inspection Division of Washington D.C. When the brothers are not striving to educate and please clients, James and Robert spend time golfing with friends, traveling abroad and spending time with their family.
