    + Agricultural Drainage

    Holland Contracting was originally based on our agricultural tiling and drainage services. We established ourselves as regional experts when it comes to soil and weather conditions. We also continuously strive to stay current and ahead of the curve in regards to trenching technology, most recently GPS guided install and mapping. Our machinery has also been fitted with patented boots and various upgrades to perform safer, faster, and more efficient work in specific Midwest environments.

    + Automotive & Tire

    We offer automotive and tire services for a wide range of vehicles, including farm equipment and semis. We also have a four wheel alignment machine for cars and trucks. NEW: We now provide on-the-farm tire service. Click here for more information.

    + Concrete

    Concrete in the midwest can be tricky because of our extreme and always changing weather conditions. Rest assured that when you choose Holland for your next concrete project, the results will hold up through the seasons for years to come. From sidewalks to foundations, we're a solid choice for concrete work.

    + Crane Service

    Our crane fleet includes one 50-ton rough terrain (RT) crane and two 30/40-ton truck cranes. We offer custom sets by the hour and can hoist anything—from setting rafters to removing demolition refuse, our craning division is able to meet your needs.

    + Design Build

    We can work with you to design and build your project in our own facilities, enabling us to provide you with the best service from start to finish.

    + Directional Boring

    Our Certified HDD Operators are ready to work when trenching or excavating is not practical — installing underground pipe, conduit, or cables in a shallow arc along a prescribed bore path by using a surface-launched drilling rig, with minimal impact on the surrounding area.

    + General Contracting

    We've built schools, banks, community centers, and many other structures with almost all architects in the Greater Northern Iowa region.

    + Pre-Engineered Buildings

    Our experienced ironworkers, carpenters, and craftsmen handle all phases of the building construction process. Holland Contracting proudly constructs steel framed and wood post framed buildings.

    + Seeding & Erosion Control

    Our industrial seeding division will come in and do rough-and-find grading, planting, and other touch-ups to complete the exterior appearance on your project, new or old.

    + Shop Services

    Our well-equipped shop is prepared to handle just about anything you bring in. If you don't have the proper tool to do it, we likely do.

    + Site Work

    Holland Contracting has completed many projects involving heavy machinery used for earth moving with our self-propelled and dozer-assisted scrapers. Preparation of building sites is a regular part of our operation.

    + Steel Erection

    We have the experienced manpower and the right equipment to erect steel. Large or small, we are equipped to handle most any job.

    + Underground Utlities

    Our utility division has completed underground projects throughout Iowa at depths of 45-feet or greater. Large or small projects, this crew has earned a solid reputation for quality work and it shows.

    + Wind Industry

    Holland Contracting's Windfarm division is a natural evolution from the company's beginning as a farm drainage specialist—the trenching technology, although much more complicated, follows the same basic principals. Our personnel is well aware of the issues presented by broken tile in the surrounding farm property and our goal is to install the various forms of cabling necessary for windfarm electrical production as efficiently as possible and without any detrimental effects to the property. Agricultural costs being what they are, Holland Contracting wants to be viewed as innovative and a partner for all parties to the project. For more information, visit our JTH Wind site.

    + Wood Framing

    We provide professional, skilled framing services with an experienced carpentry staff that can frame any size or style of project.

    Holland Contracting uses InterDrain trenchers for agricultural drainage (tile installation) and underground utilities (installation of electrical and cable wire).
