Born to Build

O’Shea Builders is a leading commercial construction-services provider in Illinois with offices in Springfield and Peoria. Founded in 1902, we provide General Contracting, Construction Management, Design Build, Civil and Building Maintenance services. 

Supported by over a century of satisfied clients, lasting partnerships and projects that help make a positive difference in our communities, O’Shea Builders has established a reputation for excellence, performance and integrity. From pre-construction to post-construction and everything in between, there’s a purpose to every plan we submit, every project we complete and everything we do. We are committed problem solvers who bring innovative solutions to every obstacle we are confronted with - sometimes before they arise. It is our vision to enhance every opportunity for our clients, our people and the communities we serve.

Building With A Purpose

Our passion for building comes from within. We have a keen understanding of what our clients are trying to achieve. Whether it’s building spaces perfectly suited for healing, teaching students or serving customers, we are driven to help our clients accomplish extraordinary things.

That purpose propels us forward. It inspires us to be flexible and allow room for innovation, to overcome obstacles and plow new ground, to enhance projects and find more value, and to build trusted, collaborative partnerships with our clients. Some call this unique combination “The O’Shea Way.” To us, it is just doing the right thing.

Life Long Learning

At O’Shea there is a commitment to growth. And not just as a company, but also as individuals. Our employees value learning and are always finding new opportunities to grow personally and professionally. That mindset is imperative to our culture. Because that personal growth allows us to consistently provide more value and service to our clients. At O’Shea we consistently offer training opportunities so that our team is up to speed on the latest trends in the industry whether that is new healthcare protocols or general construction. Our training also expands beyond just the ‘construction industry.’ We encourage our employees to expand their capabilities, to become better leaders and service professionals in addition to creative problem solvers. Many of our employees are also readers and post book reviews. If you are interested in seeing what we’ve read recently, check out our bookshelf.
