Construction is not what we do…it's who we are.


English Construction is a third-generation family-owned business. For over a century, English has been advancing steadily, adding new skills, new resources, and new technology. As we kept pace with changes in the construction industry, our areas of expertise expanded to include such diverse areas as roads and bridges, power plants, water and waste water facilities, factories, monumental and institutional structures, and historic renovations.

But throughout our dynamic history, we’ve never outgrown the values that have made us successful since 1909: integrity, relationships, service, quality, and experience.
