The Early Years
In 1978, and with nearly 30 years of construction experience behind him, Vern E. Halverson founded Halverson Construction Co., Inc. to perform heavy/highway construction in Illinois.
The company’s first office staff included Vern, his wife Mary and their dog Freckles. The firm was located in the basement of their home in Springfield, Illinois. The hard work, experience and dedication that Vern had learned throughout his life and career as a surveyor, layout engineer, superintendent, estimator and project manager provided an outstanding foundation upon which the company succeeded in these early years.
