In Memorium


We have been truly blessed with great talent in the E&L Construction Group, Inc. over the years.  We have never had an incident on a job site that led to a death, but sadly, we have had a few employees whose time on earth was up all too soon. Never forgotten, they are still with us: we know they are working the big projects “The E&L Way” up in heaven. 


“Thanks for all you have done. You are still missed”
