DOD construction and military construction
The military has always played a part in the fabric of our company. In fact, Ralph Korte, our founder, served as an Army switchboard operator in Korea. With the money he earned, and the good sense he had to save it rather than spend it, it was his service that helped fund the start of The Korte Company back in 1958.
Today, the military continues to play a significant role in our day-to-day operations. We completed our first military construction project at Scott Air Force Base more than three decades ago. And since, we’ve delivered more than 500 DOD construction projects.
We think that when you build for the most powerful military force in the world it says something about the caliber of your work. At The Korte Company, we're honored to serve those who serve us.
Department of Defense partners
Throughout our many years and many projects building for the best military in the world, we’ve partnered with the agencies and departments who support the efforts of our troops – including USACE, NAVFAC, MWR and numerous state military departments. With these partners, we've built a portfolio that ranges from child-development center construction to chemical/biological-warfare-detection facility construction.

Because of our proven Design-Build portfolio, it's safe to assume that your timeline will be shorter and your process will be smoother when working with The Korte Company.
It's not cheap to protect and serve a nation as big as the United States. So when it comes to construction costs, there's just not any room in the budget for surprises.
At The Korte Company, we pride ourselves on knowing that we've never gone over-budget. And that at your ribbon cutting, the only thing you'll be left holding is a large pair of scissors.
