Established in 1997

Established in 1997, Derek, Inc. – General Contractors’s experience is strong with well over 23 years building restaurants, retail and commercial construction across the Midwest. Everything from fine dining to fast casual concepts and retail centers; new ground ups, tenant fit-outs and remodels.

With a strong focus on pre-planning, an experienced project team, and a strong network of high quality sub-contractors – Derek Inc. can help your project get completed on time and on budget.  We help many of our clients from the moment they find a potential site with feasibility studies, site visits, budgeting and pre-design.  This up front focus allows the project to flush out a lot of the typical problems construction projects run into during the most costly phase of a project, construction.  Our project managers have extensive experience in site layout, design as well as architectural design/drawing – this translates to us being able to help our clients look ahead in the process and quickly overcome unknown issues as they arise during the construction phase.   Instead of bringing problems on a job as they come up to our clients, we focus on bring multiple solutions derived from our years of experience to keep the project on track and deliver an exceptional finished product.

Our experience transcends commercial to a wide variety of other venues such as health care, churches, veterinary clinics and real estate development. Following are some advantages we offer to you and your project:

  • Due Diligence
