LEWISTON — Hebert Construction, a family-owned commercial construction contractor, us celebrating its 80th anniversary. As a new generation takes the helm, the company remains focused on the values and expertise that got it here, while keeping the door open for fresh perspectives.

Hebert Construction started as a small carpentry company based in Lewiston, and over the years evolved into a multigenerational, family-run staple of Maine. Ed Hebert, an independent home carpenter, launched the business in 1943. Twenty years later, his sons Richard and Dan, became part of the team.

Today, the company remains in the family with Richard’s son Michael Hebert as owner/president, Dan’s son Tim Hebert as owner/chief executive officer, and Simon Hebert, Michael’s son and the fourth generation, chief operating officer.

Hebert Construction is an industry leader in the planning and execution of collaborative, sustainable, and community-forward construction projects. Over the past year in an incredibly competitive job market, Hebert added 14 new employees to its team, while promoting top talent within the team.

In 2023, Hebert Construction will take on a variety of projects, including restoring Lewiston’s Picker House, a 72-unit housing project at the site of the former Continental Mill. The city of Lewiston also looks forward to Hebert’s commitment to developing Avesta Housing’s Wedgewood Block project within the Tree Street neighborhood. The block development includes construction of eight multifamily structures and the historical restoration of the structure at 111 Pine St.
