A Brief History

In 1955, Barry M. Himmelman founded the firm shortly after moving his family from Canada. With not much more than his skills as a craftsman, Barry M. grew the company from one man jobs to small remodel projects and eventually to more extensive construction projects. From generation to generation, the company has continued to honor the founding principles of being true to the honest hard-work ethic of yesteryear.

Today, three generations later, Barry J.  Himmelman has grown the Construction Management / General Contracting firm into a company using the most advanced technology and innovations of today’s construction industry while still holding true to its roots.  Almost 60 years after its founding, Himmelman Construction is still based on the same basic core principals of honesty, integrity, common sense, and hard work.
