We build with heart.

At Straub Construction, we don’t build for the industry awards or accolades we receive, we build for the people who work, learn, pray and live in the buildings we construct. It’s how we’ve worked for 100 years.

As a general contractor in Kansas City, we genuinely believe in improving the lives of people with the buildings we construct. If our projects and financial support can make a positive impact on communities, there is an even greater hope for our children and future leaders. Straub Construction firmly believes in helping others.

We believe in providing affordable housing.

Since the 1970s, providing quality housing for low-income families has remained a company priority. Straub Construction has built or renovated thousands of Kansas City area housing units.

Many of these projects received awards, whether from the Missouri Housing Development Commission or for historic renovation. Ernie Straub III, president of Straub Construction, is highly respected within the affordable housing community for his knowledge of the construction industry, his honesty and integrity. He is also committed to redeveloping Kansas City’s urban core.

We believe in giving back.

Two of the 50+ charities Straub Construction has supported over the years are the Bishop Sullivan Center and Community Housing of Wyandotte County.  We believe each is a true asset to the community and we provide them with volunteers and financial assistance.

Employees at Straub Construction also help the community in their own ways, including:

  • Donating free time to renovate houses
  • Making presentations to student groups, whether pre-schools or college level
  • Giving time and/or finances to area food pantries
  • Active involvement with churches, schools, youth sports and scouting organizations
  • Raising money and creating awareness for special causes

Every year Straub Construction provides materials and our project managers, superintendents and laborers to charitable organizations across Greater Kansas City. We do these projects quietly. While Straub Construction takes immense pride in financially helping agencies, it’s the smiling faces of those we assist that give us greatest satisfaction.
