Project Experience

Industrial Contracting Co. specializes in all forms of industrial construction, including power plant design and construction. When the going gets dirty, messy, large, complicated, or time sensitive, we really shine. We have decades of combined experience working in operating steel mills, auto plants, power plants, and manufacturing facilities of all sorts. The kind of projects where every few minutes a whistle blows and a giant ladle filled with molten steel rolls through the job site, and flame retardant clothing is a must. Or the kind of project where the factory has a planned shutdown over a long weekend, and we need to accomplish 10 days worth of critical maintenance work in just 3 1/2 days of "24/7" work so the plant can be back up and running when the first shift starts on Tuesday morning.

The owners and management of Industrial Contracting Co. have been in the industrial construction business for decades. Walter "Pete" Kerr, our head of project management and business development, has been in the business for over 40 years. Tim Kerr, shareholder and Executive Vice President, Jim Kerr, shareholder and Chief Estimator, and Steve McGrew, shareholder, Vice President and General Counsel, have more than 40 more years of experience between them. We have the experience and expertise to get your job done, to get it done right, and to get it done on time and on budget.

Richfield, Ohio is the location of Industrial Contracting's corporate headquarters, but our team has been responsible for tens of millions of dollars of successful construction projects in Ohio and throughout the United States, from Baltimore to San Diego. Our experience includes:

  • Over 1,000 MW of design/build peaker power plant projects providing complete turnkey services that include design engineering, equipment procurement, construction, commissioning and start-up

  • Dozens of steel mill and auto manufacturing plant projects of all sizes

  • Placement of civil/structural cast in place concrete in projects of all types

  • Structural steel erection and equipment setting

  • Site work and excavation

  • Concrete restoration

  • We take pride in our ability to competitively price your project without sacrificing quality. We are not a big multi-national conglomerate, so we can keep our overhead low and pass those savings on to our customers. The bottom line is that we not only have the expertise and experience to do your job, we can do it without busting your budget.
