Phalen Nighttime

Founded in 1946 with the hard work and perseverance required to be successful in the construction business, Phalen Steel Construction Company spans four generations of the Phalen family. Today, Phalen is supported by a corporate team of construction professionals  from around the country and has been modernized in operations and technology while holding to the same values of quality construction at a competitive price that made it so successful for 75 years.

We are a general contractor offering design/build construction services for the community, commercial, industrial, and agricultural markets. Approximately 80% of our work is negotiated on a design/build basis. Our history of repeat customers is a testament to the value we deliver on every project.

The discipline and processes that we perfected over the years has allowed us to expand the operation from the Mendota, IL region to a second office in Lisle, Illinois. Now Phalen is able to increase its focus in the Chicago Metropolitan area by bringing the same approaches to successful projects that clients across Western Illinois and other states have enjoyed for many years.

Phalen became a Butler Builder? in 1948, making us the longest tenured builder in Butler’s nationwide network. We also are a "Career Builder" with Butler, which is offered to builders only after demonstrating their ability to add value to clients and successfully complete several projects. We also have received more than 50 Butler awards, including the highest award: Builder of the Year.
