Sewer & Water Contractor in Green Bay for 52 years!
The history of De Keyser Construction reflects a strong reputation of quality and integrity while serving Green Bay and Northeastern Wisconsin.
In the beginning their main focus was municipal sewer and water projects. Since then, De Keyser has widened its scope of projects and has extensive experience in commercial, industrial, municipal and residential projects. Below, a timeline of our work.
De Keyser Construction was started in 1965 by Ron De Keyser and his cousin Jim De Keyser. Dan De Keyser bought into the company three years later and became a partner. Dan had been working with them since the start but took time off in 1969 when he was drafted and served six years in the US Marines.
De Keyser became a union contractor and was the first sewer and water contractor north of Milwaukee to use a line laser for installing pipe.
In the photo (left) the Green Bay Press Gazette used the phrase "Space Age Technology" to describe using a laser beam to install sewer pipe.
The municipal project on the left involved installing 12" concrete sanitary sewer on Verlin Rd. for the Village of Bellevue, formerly the Town of Bellevue.
The University of Wisconsin Green Bay (UWGB) officially moved from the Deckner Center to it's current location in Green Bay in 1969. As for most universities, growth is ongoing. The photo was taken in 1971. De Keyser Construction was involved in the installation of a 36" concrete storm sewer.
By 1987, De Keyser Construction was well established in the commercial and industrial side of sewer and water construction. This photo was taken while installing 10" sanitary sewer at the I-43 Industrial Park.
Underdrain systems are installed to prevent premature pavement failure. De Keyser worked at the U.S. Army Reserve building in 1992 installing an underdrain system for their parking lot.
Construction began in early 2001 for a massive redeveloment project of Lambeau Field. For De Keyser Construction it was a $3 million dollar sewer and water project, one of their highest profile jobs on record.
De Keyser has not limited itself to projects in the Green Bay area alone. Through the years they have completed projects throughout Wisconsin, including Port Washington, the Fox Cities and north. Here is an installation of a 21" storm sewer in downtown Appleton.
By 2004, De Keyser's scope of projects spread from sanitary sewer, storm sewer, emergency sewer and water repair, underdrains and watermain installation and more. This photo shows De Keyser installing an 8" watermain on Pilgrim Way in Ashwaubenon.
In 2012, De Keyser Construction was proud to be a local subcontractor for the $143 million Lambeau Field stadium expansion project.
In 2016, De Keyser Construction was proud to be a part of the Aurora BayCare Medical Center Vince Lombardi Cancer Center Addition.
