Illinois Minority Business Enterprise

Our History

With his foundational commitment to client satisfaction, Demeke Berhanu-Haile recognized that although he provided the best service to his clients for the design phase of the construction process, many times the construction process led by other firms did not have such a commitment to meeting the client’s needs.

Established early in 2010, Berhanu Construction continues to grow through the trust of satisfied repeat clients. Berhanu Construction pursues work for clients seeking a well thought-out construction process, with a commitment to value and quality.

Berhanu Construction is a registered contractor with both the City of Chicago and the Illinois Capitol Development Board. We are registered as a Minority Business Enterprise with the Illinois Department of Central Management Services (for CDB Work) and are seeking similar registration with the City of Chicago.
