Building Relationships Since 1976

Hargrave has served Northern Illinois for over forty-five years, providing expertise, resources and innovation through our General Contracting, Design/Build and Construction Management services.  We are active members of the Chicagoland Associated General Contractors, the Associated General Contractors of America, the Elgin Area Chamber of Commerce and the Architectural Woodwork Institute. Our ability to be either a Construction Manager, General Contractor, or a Carpentry Subcontractor allows us to tailor our services to fit specific project requirements. We welcome all levels of construction from the smallest to the largest – renovations, additions, millwork, design/build, and new construction.


General Construction

Hargrave succeeded in the overall completion of many projects

We provide general contracting services to a wide variety of public and private companies, organizations, and commercial developers. Our foremen effectively manage our projects giving us the ability to schedule, sequence and maintain safety standards. Relationships with our specialty contractors and vendors gives us an advantage to order material timely,  and deliver significant cost saving. Our people, technology, and procedures have been carefully chosen and trained to meet the technical requirements and financial budgets of our client's projects.

Design-Build/Construction Management

Hargrave is experienced with budgeting, building systems, and design to assist in a successful project 

From the onset of the project we assist with design options and systems, budgeting, phasing, and scheduling.  We work with the Architect during Design Development; Pre-Construction planning is essential for a functional, affordable, and timely venture.  Our forty-five years of experience in industrial, commercial, municipal, educational, parks and rec, and religious facilities give us the in-house knowledge for your project. We have tenured relationships with architectural firms to team with if desired.


Hargrave utilizes the latest in technology to improve efficiency and costs

Our Carpentry Division provides, but is not limited to, framing, blocking, rough carpentry, finish carpentry, exterior finishes, millwork and casework installation, lamination, metal stud framing, gypsum assemblies, acoustical ceilings and custom cabinet fabrication services. Self-performance of these activities ensures our projects are safe, remain on schedule, and on budget while delivering the highest level of quality.
