Danny’s Construction Company has been built strong since our founding in 1970. We are proud of our history and the expertise and reputation that we have gained from years of successful projects and practices.

Our Story

Est. 1970

Our journey began in 1970 when our founder, Keiran “OB” O’Brien, saw an opportunity to bid on a local school project and was awarded a contract for structural steel erection. With only his reputation, OB needed to establish a company and hire someone he could trust. In honor of his son Dan who was undergoing heart problems, he named the company Danny’s Construction and hired his best friend Milton as his first employee.

In 1994 our company grew nationally when we opened two new division offices in Chicago and San Francisco, allowing us to better serve our customers. Danny’s Construction Company now specializes in structural and miscellaneous steel erection services.  We have substantial experience in building bridges, sports and events facilities, hospital and medical facilities, as well as a variety of industrial and commercial structures. With this experience, we have built a reputation for surpassing rugged industry standards for quality, safety and productivity.

Having the resources available to take on projects regardless of size, location, complexity or demanding scheduling parameters, has allowed Danny’s Construction Company to continue to build strong landmark structures from beginning to end for nearly 50 years.
