About Heneghan Wrecking


  • We are fully licensed, bonded and insured, with a bonding capacity over $35 million.
  • Our comprehensive insurance includes liability coverage with pollution coverage.
  • We have the resources to remove structures of all sizes with our state-of-the-art-equipment.
  • We are an active member of the National Demolition Association.

There are very few demolition companies in the Chicago area who can match the size and capabilities we have at Heneghan Wrecking.  We’ve been in business for over 40 years and our experience is second to none.  There is a reason that we are the most trusted name in demolition in northern Illinois and northwest Indiana.  The demolition business is highly specific in nature and experience in working with different projects in different industries and located in different municipalities has been critical to the formation of the most seasoned management team and worker personnel in the industry.  We see around corners and anticipate what you may not see, and that is our our most valuable asset as a company.

Safety Is Always a Top Priority

Safety is first and foremost on our minds whenever we begin a job. That is why we enforce strict safety standards every step of the way. We have daily toolbox meetings to review work conditions and safety requirements, and our crews regularly attend classes to stay current on OSHA rules. Some of the safety courses our staff has been trained, certified and licensed include:

Fall Protection
Crane Signaling
Skid Steers & Forklifts
Torch Safety
Fire Prevention
Emergency Response
First Aid

Electrical Safety
Confined Space
Stairway & Ladder

Without adhering to the highest safety standards on a demolition project the best laid plans can be highly hazardous.  Safety is the cornerstone of our work, which is why we train and over train our workers to be the best in the business.  We do it because it’s the right thing to do, because it protects our workers (our family), and because it protects anyone and everyone that is on or near the job site.  It’s not simply a matter of insurance, it’s a matter of caring about people and running an ethical business, both ideals which we hold in high esteem.
