DOD construction and military construction

The military has always been a part of the fabric of our company. In fact, our founder, Ralph Korte, served as an Army switchboard operator in Korea. Money he earned during his service helped start 老虎机游戏back in 1958.

We completed our first military construction project at Scott Air Force Base in Illinois over 30 years ago, and since then, we’ve delivered 500 more DOD construction projects.

We think that when you build for the most powerful military in the world it says something about the caliber of your work. 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.
