Straub Construction was founded in 1920, when Ernest J. Straub, Sr. began developing real estate, including churches, schools and homes in the Mission Hills area of Greater Kansas City.

Today, under the current leadership of Ernie Straub III, Parker Young and Dan VanDonge, Straub Construction is an award-winning general contractor specializing in corporate, higher education, k-12 education, historic renovation, multifamily, religious, senior living and specialty projects.

Our ability to make sound decisions over our many years in business has given us a reputation as a solid firm who continues to deliver project after project and one that values our relationships with clients, peers and vendors in the industry.

It’s our expertise and commitment that make Straub Construction Kansas City’s most trusted construction company.
