Our history and unique approach

In 1958, Ralph Korte founded our company with three people, a truck and a saw. Today, we’re an award-winning, ENR top 400 contractor and top 100 Design-Builder.

We’ve built our company by putting our passion into every project, approaching each as if it was our own — a chance to improve. That’s kept us at the forefront of construction for decades. Through the years, we helped pioneer Design-Build, created one of the first formal safety programs and have been early adopters of BIM, Tilt-Up construction and other technologies. Today, we’re still searching each day for ways to build smarter, better and faster.
