In 1973, Ivey’s Construction, Inc. (Formally Ivey’s Steel Erectors, Inc.) started as a small rebar/steel erector in Merritt Island, Florida. Over the years we have grown into an Industry Leader capable of complex Steel Erection/Heavy Rigging contracts of over $30 million dollars nationwide. Ivey’s offers a full range of services that include structural and miscellaneous steel erection, advanced welding services, heavy rigging services, and bridge crane erection and maintenance.
Our experience allows us to successfully manage all phases of steel erection, including connection design, detailing, managing fabricators, sequencing, lift plans, quality control, and safely erecting the steel. Our personnel are dedicated professionals. Our staff of Executives, Project Managers, Quality Control, Safety, Superintendents, Foremen, and Ironworkers are second to none.
Since its inception over forty years ago, Ivey’s has been proud to be associated with the International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Ironworkers Union.
