Why Burling

Our Mission

Burling Builders, Inc continues to build on the trust we have developed with our clients for over three decades, by providing high-quality construction services and professional team collaboration that goes beyond simply constructing projects.

We believe that every commercial property, educational facility, health care site or housing development must meet the unique needs of those who live, work or play there.

Our Values

  • Safe Work Environment
  • Attention to Detail & Quality
  • Sustainable & Innovative Practices
  • Diverse Partnerships
  • Strategic Project Team Implementation
  • Professional Growth


Burling Builders, Inc holds a strong commitment to safety, which doesn’t stop with our team members—we are committed to the safety of our clients, subcontractors and the public. Burling Builders has a safety program that is always improving and evolving to exceed OSHA standards. Burling’s project superintendent acts as the primary safety representative on the job site. It is their job to ensure all work is performed in a safe manner. No matter how many projects a given subcontractor has completed with Burling Builders, it is a project requirement that they go through project safety orientation before stepping foot on the job site. No construction job is ever the same, so it is Burling’s responsibility to convey the job specific safety plan to all project team members (internally and externally) so they know and understand Burling’s safety culture. All project superintendents have the following minimum training: Purdue University Construction, are certified in CPR, have an OSHA 300 and inspect job sites daily. Burling’s safety manual exceeds OSHA standards.

Award-Winning Work, Built by a Diverse Workforce


  • I’ve worked with Burling Builders for twenty years. They have a strong history of being able to do all types of project work from substantial rehab to adaptive reuse to new construction. The one-stop shopping including self-perform capabilities is a big plus.
