About Us

OUr History

Chairman of the Board, George Harms, founded George Harms Construction Co., Inc. in 1960.  Since then GHCCI has evolved into a leader in the industry undertaking the most difficult of construction projects.  We have grown to perform over $100 million dollars’ worth of projects annually with a bonding capacity of over $700 million dollars.

Our Team

We believe our employees are our greatest asset. We value our team of over 200 people and want them to continue to grow with us. Our average employee has over 12 years of service with GHCCI.

Employee development is a major focus for us. In addition to our US Department of Labor approved Apprentice program, throughout the year we offer classes in:

  • Safety
  • Management
  • Methods
  • Personal Development
  • Apprenticeship Program

 We maintain a steady, company-loyal, 100% Union workforce.


We have an extensive list of projects encompassing all areas of construction.  We self-perform all of the work on our projects except for those items requiring specific licenses that we do not possess, or for work which we believe is better performed by subcontractors.


We have a massive equipment fleet consisting of some of the largest, most technically advanced equipment in the world.  We rarely lease or rent equipment.

We have a state-of-the-art corporate computer, phone and data network integrating our main office facility and our jobsites. Our Engineering, Accounting, Human Resource and Maintenance operations operate using the latest software tools.
