What does community mean to you?


We build spaces for communities to work, learn, pray and live.

We love doing it. Which explains why we’ve done it for more than a century. Back in 1920, Ernest J. Straub, Sr. got to work developing churches, schools and homes in the Mission Hills area of Greater Kansas City.

Today, we carry on his legacy of developing our Kansas City communities through structures that serve others.

We advocate for our vendors, clients and employees.

We’re all on the same team, building communities together. We’re motivated by doing what’s right for our teammates. We take pride, responsibility and accountability in our work.

We celebrate families.

Families are our backbone. Their support is at the core of what inspires us to work hard every day.

We believe in affordable housing.

Ernie and the rest of us are committed to redeveloping Kansas City’s urban core. Through quality housing for low-income families, Straub Construction has built or renovated thousands of KC area housing units since the 70s.

We give back.

Over the years, we’ve supported more than fifty charities. Right now, the two we’re focused on are the Bishop Sullivan Center and Community Housing of Wyandotte County.

We provide materials as well as our project managers, superintendents and laborers to charitable organizations across Greater KC. And we applaud our employees who volunteer to renovate houses, make presentations to student groups, fundraise for special causes, work at food pantries and remain active in their community churches, schools, scout groups and more.

Above all else, we keep our
guiding principle simple:
treat others the way you
would like to be treated.
It hasn’t led us wrong yet.
