atering To Your Construction Needs.

When the issues are complex, the schedule tight and the risk substantial, you need to know only one thing—how to get it right. For the last 5 years, Cater Construction & General Contracting has been Northern Illinois' choice for succeeding with the toughest construction challenges. And building certainty, above all else.


It starts by being a builder first with a Bachelors of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign.  And taking a hands-on approach to every aspect of every project, from preconstruction through completion. Most of all, it means having a deep understanding of the trade. Knowing how to be both hands-on and high-tech. And nurturing close relationships with the best design partners and subcontractors in every market, from Concrete Foundations to Complete Roofing Solutions.


Here, you'll find the expertise in such specialties as convenience store construction, restaurants, high performance green building, remodeling and more. While we're an experienced builder, we live and work in the communities we serve. And are proud to call each of our locations home.


We've come a long way since we began our first convenience store construction 1999. But, as much as things have changed, one thing never has, or will—Our genuine belief that our people make the difference. Come see for yourself.
