The Great Lakes Construction Co.

About The Great Lakes Construction Co.

The Great Lakes Construction Co., with offices in Cincinnati and Hinckley, Ohio has been a successful heavy/highway general contractor since 1948, completing hundreds of projects. Great Lakes' success and reputation has evolved from our focus on major heavy civil construction projects including excavation, piling, earthwork, utilities, energy, concrete foundations, structural concrete, concrete paving, environmental remediation, and general site work.

Our employee-owned team - which is comprised heavily of Engineers and Construction graduates, including 18 Professional Engineers - oversees a field operations workforce of over 500 Union craftspeople. Great Lakes believes that co-op programs serve as a great foundation for the student's career path. A co-op experience allows the student to explore different opportunities while providing the employer a preview of the candidate's skills. Currently, over 30 former co-ops have accepted permanent positions in our company, including our current President, and Vice President of Operations.

The Great Lakes Way … Safe. Capable. Efficient.


Engineering Co-op

August 2021 - December 2021 Cleveland, OH
“I enjoyed working out on the jobsite. It gave me the opportunity to get out and see exactly how things I have seen in design plans are built in the field. I had an in depth look into the design plans and the budget of the project. Another think I enjoyed was that everyday I had meaningful work I contributed to the project.”

Construction Management Intern

May 2021 - August 2021 Canton, OH
“The people in the company are so nice and helpful. Walking into this internship I have had no experience on a construction site. They had patience and persistence to teach me what is expected on a job site and how to be professional about it. ”
