About Us

About Us

People are the foundation for F.A. Wilhelm’s (Wilhelm) quest for innovation and continual pursuit of excellence. Since 1923, our passionate, creative people have led and challenged the construction industry to build safely, build responsibly, build with the highest integrity – and to build together.

F.A. Wilhelm’s Legacy is Building Together

Today, nearly a century later, Wilhelm provides expansive construction value through flexible delivery methodologies including construction management, design-build, general contracting, integrated project delivery and trade specialty contracting services. As one of the largest employers of construction labor in the Midwest, we specialize in managing, developing, and delivering sustainable, effective spaces and places where people live, learn, work, play, discover, and heal.

The critical key to our success and longevity is our commitment to people. From clients, project stakeholders, employees, to industry peers, subcontractors, and vendors, to site visitors, and passersby, Wilhelm’s culture centers on relationships and helping others. We are honored to be part of the many buildings and structures showcasing the strength, passion, and endurance of the human spirit. From complex new and renovation projects for healthcare, commercial, higher education, life sciences, industrial, manufacturing, public works, power and parking facilities, Wilhelm understands the spaces and places we build today are the foundation for everyone’s future.

It’s people who form the foundation for everything we do

F.A. Wilhelm was a man who established our firm because of a dream to build better buildings and a better life for his family and community. This is still the Wilhelm way. Our enduring reputation for honesty, integrity and industry-leading quality has been built by generations of employees driven to do their best for our communities each and every day.
