It all started with a dream back in 1986 when Bill Lorrigan decided to go into business for himself. After many years of working in the industry, Bill felt he could offer a premium service to the industry and with the help of his wife, Barb, formed Bill Lorrigan Construction Inc.

Growing up with a strong work ethic, Bill has never been afraid of hard work. He enjoys the challenges that come along in the construction world and prides himself on never giving his employees a task that he himself would not do. Through dedication, long hours and "the school of hard knocks", he has seen his company grow into the force it is today. Bill loves being on the job sites and will touch base personally with all jobs. Having raised three children (Jessica, Ryan and Bridgette) with his wife, Barb, he now enjoys being "Papa" to his seven grandchildren. When Bill is not working he enjoys socializing, a ride on his Harley, a friendly game of golf, a cruise in his corvette or a casual run.
Starting the business with Bill in 1986, Barb initially did all the paperwork involved with the business in addition to working outside the company. As the business grew and employees were hired, Barb continued overseeing the office side of the business but continued her fulltime employment elsewhere. In 2010, after 33 years being employed outside the company, Barb returned to the company fulltime bringing her knowledge of the financial and business world with her. Serving as Vice President/Treasurer and Secretary of the corporation, Barb continues to oversee the general running of the office and human resources. For enjoyment Barb loves spending time with family and friends, especially her grandchildren, a casual bike ride, Zumba or a ride on her Harley.
Dave was born and raised on a dairy farm and he knew early on that the factory scene was not for him. In 1985 Dave bought the family business from his dad and thus for the next 10 years owned and operated Zellner Construction & Equipment. In 1995, Dave closed the doors on his own business and worked for Braun Electric where he worked closely with the needs of the dairy farmer and housing of cattle. Joining Bill Lorrigan Construction Inc, in 2008, as an agricultural sales associate, was an easy fit for Dave. His years of working with the dairy farmer and knowing the needs of both the cows and the farmer make him an excellent addition to the Lorrigan sales team. Dave enjoys helping our customers make their dreams become reality. Relaxing for Dave involves wood working and spending time with family, especially his 10 grandchildren.
