Work With Us

People who embrace chal­lenges love working with Berglund. Our projects require creative, col­lab­o­ra­tive thinking to find new oppor­tu­ni­ties to deliver value for our clients. If you want to transform the con­struc­tion industry while trans­form­ing our built envi­ron­ment, this is the right place.

Bring your specialized expertise to the company that values your work and safety.

As one of the largest and oldest con­struc­tion and restora­tion firms in the Midwest, we employ over 300 trades­peo­ple. We hire laborers, car­pen­ters, masons, tuck­point­ers, concrete finishers and heavy equipment operators to self-perform a variety of work scopes asso­ci­at­ed with both new con­struc­tion and building restoration.

Berglund takes pride in upholding the highest standards for workplace ethics and safety. To ensure a culture in which everyone is treated with respect, we provide an anonymous hotline to report any jobsite issues. Our .59 EMR is world-class, besting the industry average of 1.00. Berglund’s safety program stands as our most important priority, and we con­sis­tent­ly work to improve the safety of our oper­a­tions. We want all employees to return home safely every night.

Grow your career in a collaborative and challenging environment.

If you aspire to work on exciting, outside-the-box projects while vastly expanding your skillset, Berglund is the place for you. Our diversity of project types provides many oppor­tu­ni­ties to con­tribute your talents to work that matters and build a ful­fill­ing career. We develop leaders who take on the toughest projects in the industry.

Continuous Development and Leadership

Our smart growth strategy relies on fostering lead­er­ship and career growth for our employees. We work with each person to identify devel­op­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties that fit their indi­vid­ual goals. This could mean learning a new tech­nol­o­gy, acquiring a new cer­ti­fi­ca­tion or exploring a new oppor­tu­ni­ty within a different Berglund division.

Work Hard, Play Hard Culture

We believe bringing employees together to socialize builds stronger, more col­lab­o­ra­tive teams. Company-sponsored social outings every quarter are a way to relax and have fun outside the office. Past events have included trips to Lagunitas Brewery and after­noons playing games at Whirly­ball and Pinstripes.

Getting Involved and Giving Back

We work with a variety of social impact orga­ni­za­tions to help foster mean­ing­ful change in our com­mu­ni­ties. Our men­tor­ship programs, volunteer events and fundrais­ing efforts all provide sig­nif­i­cant oppor­tu­ni­ties for employees to give back to the community.
