It’s the Henning Motto: Quality through Leadership.

And you can add on to that family motto: pride, integrity, safety & equity.

Those simple but elegant words, filled with deep and resolute meaning, sum up the Henning Family and Henning Florida Construction.

You see, remodeling and commercial construction is a Henning Family tradition. After four generations quality service runs to deep roots in the Henning Family tree.

When customers come to Henning Florida  they know they are not only engaging with the current generation – Heather Henning – but a tradition passed on by her father and her grandfather and her great-grandfather.

Founded by Danish immigrant Lars H. Henning in Latimer, Iowa the Henning Family history in the renovation and construction industry is based on core principles: honesty, hard work and integrity. It is from those principles combined with solid Midwestern values that drive each and every Henning Florida project to this day.

The story of Henning Family of companies is also the story of America in so many great ways.

Renovations by Henning - Four Generations

Four generations of the Henning Family


Lars was a brick mason by trade, having learned his craft in the traditional ways of European craft guilds. Upon arrival in America he sought out the American dream by starting a small construction business in his adopted hometown of Latimer, Henning Construction quickly gained a reputation as a builder of quality clay tile barns, gymnasiums, grain silos and other buildings within this north central Iowa community.


Lars’ sons, Owen and Wayne, expanded the portfolio of the company to include carpentry and home building. Owen started a division of business specializing in grain handling, drying, storage and milling. By the early 1950s, Henning Construction established itself as a respected regional builder of single family residential housing, light commercial buildings, agricultural confinement buildings and feed mills.


Lars’ grandson, Jeff Henning, became a senior member of the Company’s management staff and expanded Henning Construction’s expertise into the areas of multifamily residential, multistory office buildings, state-of-art livestock confinement facilities, food processing facilities and international construction management.


The fourth generation is represented with both of Jeff’s daughters, Heather Henning and Lisa Henning Beohm working in the family business. Under Jeff Henning’s leadership and with the support of a stable and experienced management and building team, The Henning companies – Henning Construction Company in Iowa and Henning Florida in Naples, Florida – is well positioned to meet the construction needs of various industries throughout the world.

Henning Florida is widely regarded as among the finest commercial and home renovation and remodeling firms in Florida, if not the entire Southeastern U.S.

The rock solid Midwestern heritage of honestly, hard work and integrity remains embedded in the DNA of the company.

Quality, leadership shine through at Henning in its work, in its leadership.

It’s little wonder, really, that Henning Florida is among Florida’s most respected brands in home & commercial remodeling.

Quality of the work, integrity of the business operations, dedication to customer satisfaction all shine through which, in turn, leads to accolades and leadership in the greater community.

For nearly 90 years – and four generations – the Henning Family has built its reputation on quality, pride of workmanship, ethics and decency in its business dealings.

Heather Henning, president of Henning Florida, follows in that family tradition and her leadership and accomplishments reflect, in turn, the family tradition.
