We explain each phase of the project, helping you make informed decisions that work for you and your clients.

In 1906, John Burns started the company's first construction project for Middlewest Utilities Company, a predecessor of today's utility companies. He was a man of foresight and vision. In the early nineteen hundreds, utility companies were using full-time pick and shovel crews to handle their installation and repair work. This system proved inadequate. The utility companies were unable to mobilize crews large enough to handle the added burden of emergency work. Like Henry Ford and other men in this era of emerging progress, John Burns realized the probability of a rapidly-expanding population and seized the opportunity to profit by providing a better service.
Over the years, John Burns Construction Company expanded in order to keep pace with the changing demands that require new technology and more exacting quality standards in the field. John Burns Construction Company is an undisputed leader in underground construction and in the field of general contracting.
A network of strategically located offices throughout the country gives John Burns Construction Company the ability to handle multiple concurrent jobs without slowdowns or interruptions. Anywhere in the country where construction is to be done, consider John Burns Construction Company.
