About B&R Construction

B & R Construction is a full-service construction company specializing in boatdocks and shorewalls along with barges and workboats. In addition, B&R Marine, is your source for recreational boats and marine services in Taylorville, Illinois.

Since 2006, we have been building and operating our own barges and workboats year-round on lakes and rivers in Illinois and the midwest along with building boat houses and boat docks, installing boat lifts & hoists, and adding value and beauty to lakefront property with shorewalls & seawalls.

In 2014, B & R Construction purchased AFS Enterprises, Inc., a company with an excellent reputation that began installing steel shore walls, boat docks, boat hoists, and related shore line improvements in 1983. Installations started on Lake Sara, near Effingham, Illinois, and have since expanded to include some twelve lakes, water impoundments and golf courses throughout Central Illinois and Indiana.
