New Member Highlight - Berglund Construction

Berglund Construction is celebrating 104 years in business. The accomplished third-generation, family-owned and operated general contractor and nationally recognized restoration firm attributes this significant milestone to employees’ vested interest in every project’s success and to longstanding partnerships with repeat clients. 

“As we reflect on Berglund’s heritage, we celebrate 10 decades of milestones, achievements and collaborative contributions,” President Fred Berglund says. “We’ve come a long way since then, but our founding principles, values and ethics remain the same.” 

The company has restored many of the Midwest’s landmarks and historic buildings, including architecturally significant campuses such as the University of Chicago and Northwestern University. Berglund has received national recognition, including the Construction Excellence Award from the U.S. General Services Administration and the National Preservation Award from the National Trust for Historic Preservation. 

“As we look toward our second century in business, we’re excited by the promise of new opportunities,” Berglund says. “We will maintain the same level of quality service that we have always had and continue to be a trusted adviser to our clients.”
