The foundation for Bulley & Andrews success was set back in 1891. That’s when Frederick Bulley, a 21 year-old English stone mason, partnered with Alfred Andrews, an architect.

The men’s talents complemented one another and they shared a deep sense of commitment to the building industry. Together they endeavored to set the company apart based on honesty, integrity and quality service in construction. These attributes remain the principle forces in our business practices today.

First opening for business at 115 North Dearborn, with a staff of one, Bulley & Andrews began to win its first projects, due in part to Fred’s masonry work, which was regarded as among the best in the city. Alfred Andrews’ uncanny estimating skills ensured that their bids were always accurate and reliable. This winning combination, quality workmanship and expert coordination, continue today to be the hallmark of Bulley & Andrews’ successful project delivery.
