Straub Construction Company is a third-generation business that has been enhancing Kansas and Missouri since 1920.
Under the leadership of Ernie Straub III and Parker Young, Jr., Straub Construction has served Kansas City’s construction industry for more than 90 years with the same reliable, ethical, award winning service that has made us Kansas City’s most trusted general contractor.
Real estate developer Ernest J. Straub, Sr. laid the foundation for Straub Construction in Kansas City in 1920 when he began his construction services developing homes, churches and schools in the Country Club Plaza and Mission Hills areas of Greater Kansas City
Ernie Straub, Jr. started his career building houses after the Korean War. With a background in engineering, he worked around Kansas City foremost as a developer, but was often hired for builder contractor services on these sites.
In 1960 Ernie Straub, Jr. built apartments on the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City. Unfortunately, Ernie Straub, Sr. passed away suddenly and did not live to see the project completed, but Ernie Jr. continued company’s legacy.
Ernie Straub, Jr. and Ernie Straub III joined together in 1987 and assembled the success of Straub Construction Kansas City based on the company’s commitment to building quality construction – on time and within budget. With the guidance of Ernie Straub III, Straub Construction evolved into a general contractor and experienced significant growth in the 1990s.
Today, the success of Straub Construction Kansas City continues. In part because of the diverse construction projects we build and by expanding our builder contractor services into areas beyond Greater Kansas City.
Founded during a time when craftsmanship was exquisite and personal integrity expected, the core traits of Straub Construction Kansas City – honesty, integrity, work ethic, respect, and accountability – remain the company’s hallmark.
