Who we are

Michael Ehrhardt


Michael was born in Warren, Ohio and then moved to El Paso, Texas where he graduated from High School. In 1989, he moved to Austin and earned a B.S. degree in Architectural Engineering from the University of Texas. During his last year of college and until the Spring of 2011, he worked for J.C. Evans Construction. After that, he gained more experience at A Greater Austin Development, Ranger Excavating, DNT, and C.C. Carlton.


Then, in the Summer of 2016, he started Liberty Civil Construction, LLC. Michael has been on the Board of Directors of the Austin Contractors and Engineers Association since 2007 and served as its President in 2010-2011.

"I'm very proud of what we have accomplished in a very short period of time at Liberty. We have exceptional crews and staff and we are determined to be the best civil contractor in Central Texas with the highest level of customer service. This is our company culture."

Heath Haney

Vice President

Heath developed his strong work ethic while working for his uncle in the early part of his career. He truly started from the ground up as a laborer with Tridal Ltd and worked his way up. Through his hard work, he became a Superintendent before leaving the company.


That experience plays a big role in his management style. Heath quickly realized the importance of interpersonal relationships within a construction company and works diligently to create a family-like atmosphere at Liberty Civil Construction.

Before partnering with Mike at Liberty Civil Construction, Heath served as Vice President of Operations for 5 years at a local civil construction company. Due to his diverse background and experience, he has the ability to manage large and technically challenging projects and complete them on schedule and within budget.


Heath has been married to his wife Ginger for 11 years, and has 4 children: Garrett, Wyatt, Savannah, and Caitlin.
