Sanitary / Storm Sewer / Water Main Division
(Utility Division) –

The Utility Division is where the JHB family of companies began. John H. Berra purchased a small rubber tired backhoe in 1963 and began providing sanitary sewer lateral installations to existing homes in the growing suburbs. The company continued to reinvest in additional equipment and labor, expanding the operations to include the installation of sanitary sewers, storm sewers and water mains for new developments.

Currently, we install over 125 miles of pipe per year ranging in size from 4" in diameter to 120" in diameter.

We also install pre-cast box culverts, poly fusion pipe and ductile iron pipe. We employ over 150 quality union workers forming 18 pipe laying crews, 7 structure crews and 4 inspection crews. Our structure crews are experienced in building manholes, inlets, wingwalls and junction boxes with pre-cast products, concrete, brick and other materials. We control all facets of our work including site blasting utilizing our own track drills. All this self performed work insures that your project will be completed on a timely basis.

We are equipped and prepared for small or large sites, and municipal, residential, and commercial types of work. We have experienced crews, supervision, support staff and management to provide a full range of construction services including multiple crews on the same project to ensure the timely completion of your project. This focus has created a loyal customer base that consistently contracts with J. H. Berra for all their utility projects.

Some of our projects include the 12,000 feet of 54" RCP sanitary sewer upgrades in River Des Peres for MSD, the 730 lot Springhurst Subdivision in O'Fallon, Missouri, and the Meadows at Lake St. Louis Shopping Center in Lake St. Louis, Missouri.

J.H. Berra Construction Co.'s Utility Division is ready to meet your needs for sewer and water main installation. We are committed to providing quality service to ensure your project is completed professionally and in a timely and cost efficient manner.
