Leander Construction, Inc. in Canton, IL was founded by Jerry Leander and his two sons in 1991.

Jerry brought with him 25 years of experience with a prominent Peoria, IL-based commercial construction general contractor. In 2015 Todd Leander took over as President/CEO.

Leander has completed many quality projects for a variety of markets, but regardless of the type of client that we are working for, we are also able to partner with architects to provide design/build services for customers that request assistance in the pre-construction phase. In this capacity, our staff will develop budgets that incorporate alternatives and the design and construction schedules.

Leander has developed effective subcontractor partner relationships over the years and a team of craftsmen that enables us to self-perform in such areas as concrete forming and placement, carpentry, various metals, and equipment/specialties installation. This results in the ability to meet aggressive schedules while maintaining quality and production targets.


In the challenging economic environment that exists today, Leander, in many cases will, through the offering of value engineering services, assist in bringing an apparent ‘over budget’ project to reality. We've found this to be true many times in cases of a traditional hard bid submission where the method of delivery is design/bid/build.

The company has obtained numerous awards and special commendations relating to a variety of completed projects. Leander has LEED accredited staff, and our projects have received awards on multiple occasions from such agencies as the Illinois Capital Development Board.

Today, Leander Construction is a well-known and trusted medium sized contractor in west-central Illinois that has performed work within up to 150 miles of its home base of Canton, Illinois; including the performance of work in the states of Iowa and Missouri.
