The Midwest’s Premier Marine Construction Experts

Midwest Foundation was founded in Tremont, Illinois near Peoria in 1969. Originally specializing in pile driving, today, Midwest Foundation provides comprehensive marine construction.





Locks & Dams

Piling & Foundations


Having completed over $750 million in quality construction, our capable team has a proven track record with complex marine projects for state transportation departments, Army Corps of Engineers, and various private companies throughout the Midwest. 

One of the many things we’ve learned over the years– to listen and respond quickly to our customers’ needs. This unparalleled commitment to relationships is backed by robust equipment resources, an available and qualified workforce, and the know-how to deliver the most complicated projects on time and on budget. The result is quality workmanship and overall value for dollars invested from concept through completion. 

In 2018, Midwest Foundations was acquired by Alberici Corporation, a diversified construction services firm headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri. Midwest Foundation will work hand-in-hand with Alberici’s Heavy Civil division to continue providing comprehensive service on the U.S. inland waterway system.


Adding value through our unflinching commitment to safety.

The importance of safety cannot be overemphasized when constructing on, under, and above the water. With our long history of marine construction and rehabilitation projects, we know that safety is first and foremost, and we have seamlessly integrated these practices into our culture. We take safety very seriously and our statistics prove it, year in and year out.
