Welcome to Berger Excavating

Berger Excavating has earned the reputation as one of Northern Illinois’ leading heavy construction contractors. For more than 40 years, our private-sector clients have trusted us to lay the ground work for their subdivisions, banks, office parks, restaurants, shopping centers, and industrial parks. While at the same time, our public-sector clients have come to expect the same level of quality on large highway and infrastructure projects. Our skilled machine operators, qualified site foremen, and experienced project managers make every job run safely and efficiently. We are proud of our team of long standing employees who are among the finest in the industry.

When it comes to earth moving, speed is critical; however accuracy can never be sacrificed. In order to increase both speed and accuracy, we have made a heavy investment in GPS equipment and other technologies that improve efficiency, accuracy, and speed. Owners and general contractors alike have come to rely on Berger to deliver their sites ready to build on, in a timely fashion.

Underground utility installation is one of our specialties; with crew capabilities ranging from open field pipe installation to complex urban reconstruction projects. With the ability to directional drill, in addition to televise and jet sewers, Berger provides a single solution for underground utility installation and reconstruction. In this demanding field, Berger is noted for speed, safety, and uncompromised quality.

By staying ahead of technology and continually educating our employees, we provide our clients with the safest and most cost effective site solution to any project.
