Established in 1969 by Earle Zachau, Zachau Construction has built a reputation as a company with honesty and integrity.
Zachau Construction has been building honest relationships into every new project. We work collaboratively with our clients toward a common goal — quality construction that is on time and on budget. We have completed over 350 contracts with a combined value exceeding $200 million with zero litigation. Not with anyone — owners, designers, subcontractors, or suppliers.
With the flexibility to complete projects within a wide range of size and scope, Zachau has maintained a long history of delivering the same high level of service to all clients. We are ready for the challenges of special project requirements including: historical restorations and preservations, occupied spaces, environmentally sensitive areas, or off-hour work.
Our success is a result of our outstanding team. Zachau’s management team has over 200 years of combined experience in the construction industry, with knowledge and expertise that carries a project from conception through completion. Our field teams are led by supervisors who have between 15 and 35 years of field experience, with skills in many construction trades.
While focusing on honesty and integrity, Zachau Construction, throughout its history, has provided value for its clients through the entire construction process. Zachau sets clear goals while maintaining the flexibility needed to meet all safety, budgetary, scheduling, and programming objectives.
