Construction   |   Real Estate

William Charles, headquartered in Rockford, Illinois, has grown over the years to become one of the region’s largest and most successful companies. We serve a wide array of industries under the William Charles umbrella, through two business units: Construction Management and Real Estate Development.

Together, these units set the highest standards for safety, ethics, and sustainability. From highways, railroad and intermodal construction, and aviation facilities to commercial buildings, apartments, and condos, and commercial and residential paving, our companies work to build community infrastructure with some of the best processes and technologies in the industry.

Our projects have grown local economies and improved the quality of life for communities and the people within them. Our goal is always to be the best possible corporate citizen and to give back to those we serve through a sound management of resources.

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.
