Hamden, CT – Wohlsen Construction, a construction management firm headquartered in Lancaster, Pa., recently celebrated its 131st anniversary.
Wohlsen is an ENR Top 400 firm with over 300 employees in eight offices throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions. The result since opening its Connecticut office in 2016 has been a steadily growing portfolio, which has triggered recognition among design, engineering, and construction professionals around the state.
Connecticut native Mauro Rubbo is Wohlsen’s regional vice president and is responsible for charting the path forward, which includes priorities to elevate the brand in the local market and establish Wohlsen project teams as best-in-class builders. Rubbo said, “Our goal is to foster long-term partnerships and generate repeat client satisfaction. We offer a unique combination of capacity and agility, which means we are supported by the strength of a regional builder yet perform with the flexibility of a local partner. Subcontractors enjoy working with Wohlsen which pays dividends toward the overall success of a project.” He added, “We are a merit-based shop. This advantage positions us to exceed expectations and deliver the highest quality project while using the most cost-efficient approach possible.”
Joining the Wohlsen team is Director of Business Development Bob Labanara. “From a client’s perspective, whether a private developer, college or university, health network, senior living community, or private K-12 institution, deepening your general contractor bench is a good thing,” noted Labanara. “Wohlsen has arrived in Connecticut at the right time. We are thrilled to supply the market’s demand for an energized and experienced construction partner among an otherwise usual list of builders.”
The team at Wohlsen has a strong background in senior living, education, hospitality, healthcare, and corporate work. “Competition drives quality. Our completed projects throughout Fairfield County and our current work managing the new parking garage at Central Connecticut State University speak for themselves. We are excited at what the future holds for Wohlsen Construction in Connecticut,” commented Rubbo.
