“We were extremely pleased with Straub’s performance in constructing the new athletic complex. This was a very complicated project on a small site with many adjustments needed along the way. Straub was excellent at managing the typical subcontractors needed for the buildings as well as the specialty subcontractors needed for the field, bleachers and press box.

They got to know University Academy staff and communicated thoroughly to avoid any disruption of operations. Everyone took pride in their work and the impact it would have on the kids who would use the field. Straub delivered on the very high expectations set by University Academy and its supporting foundation.”  {Project: University Academy Athletic Field}

“I am writing to share the positive experience we have had working with Straub Construction Company on the construction of the new Shawanoe Elementary School in Shawnee, Kansas.

We know the importance of a good working relationship with the general contractor, and we have appreciated the focus that Straub Construction Company placed on creating such a relationship with the school district.

From the outset, we experienced exceptional communication and outstanding professionalism from the representatives of Straub. Thank you for working so well with our staff in the completion of this important project. We have enjoyed working with your team and would welcome the opportunity to do so again in the future.” {Project: Shawanoe Elementary School}

“We were extremely pleased with Straub’s performance in constructing our new athletic complex—an important campus facility, built for the benefit of our outstanding and hard-working student athletes.

Straub eagerly took on the challenges of this complicated and critical project, completing the field well under budget and having it ready promptly for our students’ practice. Straub also worked closely with the city so that we could have the stadium available for our grand opening at USM Homecoming.

Straub was excellent at managing the subcontractors needed for the buildings as well as the specialty subcontractors needed for the field, bleachers, and press box. The entire team very clearly took pride in the work they were doing and the positive impact it would have on the students who would use the field. 

In the end, Straub was able to deliver a stadium that stands out among USM’s NAIA peers.” {Project: University of Saint Mary Berkel Memorial Stadium}

“Going into this project, we had expectations that the work would be accomplished.  We are glad to report that Straub exceeded those expectations by going above and beyond and making our space comfortable, efficient and very functional.

The overall goal was to keep the history intact in our new space, yet make it conducive to our efforts of working in the 21st century. With Straub’s execution of the design, both of those goals have been achieved. Straub Construction has performed an extraordinary job, and has made Entertainment Properties Trust a very happy client.” {Project: Entertainment Properties Trust, 909 Walnut}

“All of Straub’s team members were experienced, smart, proactive, creative and, above all, highly professional.  They took responsibility for completing the project proficiently and on time, no matter what obstacles appeared. Each and every member of the Straub team maintained a whole-hearted and positive can-do attitude from start to finish, through weekdays and weekends.

Straub’s performance was beyond commendable; we can all learn a great deal about how to perform our jobs in the best way possible by following the Straub team’s example.” {Project: Entertainment Properties Trust, 909 Walnut}

“From concept to completion, this was both a meaningful and complex project for its size, with numerous stakeholders and rigorous directives that had to be met, such as the project requirements to achieve both LEED-H Platinum Certification and Historic Landmark Status with Federal Approval while keeping to a strictly scrutinized budget.

As with most projects, there were daunting challenges along the way due to budget and time constraints, but thanks to the teamwork between our organizations, and the exemplary efforts of Doug Heinen, Jason Burke, and John Falk to pro-actively identify and resolve issues, we collectively overcame these worries and created a project that has already made a genuinely positive impact on the Historic Manheim Park Neighborhood.” {Project: Bancroft School Apartments}
