About

With more than a century of superior work behind the William Charles name, we are still guided by the pursuit of excellence in every residential, commercial and industrial project we execute. We connect people and places through the neighborhoods, communities, and highways we build as well as through the competitive services we provide for regional and national municipalities and markets.

Our original roots are steeped in construction and we continue to provide a strong presence in the construction industry through William Charles Construction and Ragnar Benson. These business units enable us to offer general contracting and design/build capabilities that are among the industry’s finest, as well as heavy highway contracting, underground utilities, electrical, environmental, sand and gravel aggregates, and residential/commercial paving services.

As a result of strategic and prudent acquisitions, an attention to innovation, and a strong financial position, William Charles has grown and diversified. In the past 20 years, we’ve experienced significant growth by expanding our  Real Estate Development business, and by actively exploring new ways to be planning for the future in all that we do.

Each of our business units shares a strong desire to enhance the quality of life and make a positive difference.

With over a century of quality work behind our name, William Charles is still guided by the pursuit of excellence and the “Do it right the first time” work ethic that has been at the cornerstone of our business philosophy since 1892. Our attention to the customer and to the highest safety standards are at the very heart of all we do.
