Here at Penhall Champaign, we dedicate ourselves to make sure that your job is done correctly, and safely. We strive daily to provide you with a service that adds value to your project, and we know that one of the best things we can do to reach that goal is to do our job right while protecting the wellbeing of your team, our team, and the jobsite.

We worked with Penhall’s Denver branch on the remodel of University of Illinois’s State Farm Center, where we provided concrete cutting and removal services. Penhall has the capabilities to run the gamut on job size and complexity. As with projects such as the State Farm Center, we have the nationwide resources and experience needed to pull off the big jobs, but we still have the flexibility and finesse to turn right back around and handle a homeowner’s driveway removal the same day. Regardless of size, you can count on Penhall’s safety record and reliability to make sure you get the services you need.
