About Us

Pearson Construction Company, Inc. (PCCo), headquartered in Benton Harbor, Michigan, began providing construction services in 1918, and since that time has evolved into a full service general contracting, design build and construction management firm. The founder of the company, Joel Pearson, emigrated from Sweden in 1914 and became the first of three generations to lead the company. Incorporated in 1931, the company grew into a regionally known firm handling many governmental, institutional, commercial and industrial projects.

The creation of Pearson Engineering, Inc. in 1956, dba TERA Architects, has allowed Pearson to remain on the forefront of innovation and construction deliverables. Staffed with highly trained and experienced architects, engineers, and designers, TERA provides efficient, economical project design through both traditional and design build methods of project delivery.

In 1972, Pearson Equipment and Services, Inc. (PESC) was formed to provide construction equipment services for the region's building industry. It also provides the necessary skilled labor trades specializing in concrete, carpentry, masonry, and steel erection for the company's projects. Pearson's field operations are maintained and supervised by PESC, demonstrating Pearson's commitment to schedule and budget control by using its own labor forces whenever feasible.

Long noted for their leadership in commercial, industrial, and institutional construction, Pearson continues to broaden their professional services to serve the industry needs of today and tomorrow.
