CELEBRATING 40 YEARS


WBCI is celebrating 40 years in business that began August 1, 1973 when Tom Williams founded the firm in a small office in Peoria Heights, Illinois. The firm has grown over the years and consistently completes over 100 million dollars of work annually - with a history of over 400 projects throughout Illinois, Indiana and Iowa. Thanks to clients, architects, engineers, subcontractors and suppliers with whom lasting relationships have been established. Thanks also to the loyal, dedicated and hard working staff of office and field personnel who are part of the family. The retirement of Tom as President of the firm in 2013 and handing over the leadership to sons Dave, Tom Jr. and Joe has not changed the philosophy of the firm to serve the client by delivering quality construction on time and on budget.
