Construction Firm Celebrates Five Years in Connecticut

Hamden, CT – Wohlsen Construction is celebrating the fifth anniversary of its Connecticut office.

Located in Hamden, Wohlsen specializes in building senior living, healthcare, commercial, and education facilities. Since 2016, the office has completed over a dozen projects totaling nearly 1 million sq. ft.

“Not many companies are able to accomplish what Wohlsen has done in just five short years in terms of the volume of construction and diversity of the markets we serve,” noted Mauro Rubbo, regional vice president. “We are thrilled to recognize this important milestone and consider the last five years as excellent building blocks for the next five as we expand across the state.”

Representatives of the firm say that financial stability and a strong bandwidth of resources are key components to its success, as Wohlsen Construction Company, headquartered in Lancaster, Pa., has over 300 team members in offices throughout the Mid-Atlantic. However, when it comes to success in Connecticut, Wohlsen intentionally set aim on one factor: local team. Mauro stated, “Our entire team is handpicked and consists of local construction experts from project managers to estimating staff.”

“We have a vested interest in the success of our communities which reflects how Wohlsen delivers projects,” remarked Justin Gamache, Wohlsen’s preconstruction manager from Manchester.

To celebrate its fifth year, the company volunteered to build on its day off. “Wohlsen promotes a culture that is rewarding, challenging and fun. Volunteering with the Greater New Haven Habitat for Humanity is a natural extension of that culture. We jumped at the chance to give back to the community,” commented Larry Leonard, Wohlsen superintendent.
