Webcor Builders – Why Work For Us?


BUILT THROUGH TRUST

WE ROLL UP OUR SLEEVES and work with deep attention to detail, crafting the highest quality projects until completion. This is our promise to you. We back this up with our reputation as people you can trust. Our honesty and openness forge trusting relationships that our clients, employees, and community have come to expect. Our word is our bond and without it, nothing else matters. Welcome to Webcor.

SHAPING OUR COMMUNITY

A CITY’S TRUE SKYLINE is where our relationships and the projects we build meet - a beautifully crafted set of distinguished, high-quality projects and the people and communities that use them. Take a closer look at them inside.

DISTINCTLY BOLD

WE DO NOT FLINCH. We are bold in our approach to undertaking new and daring projects. We embrace and meet all challenges using creativity and respect for each person's unique perspective to reveal the best solutions. As award-winners in construction, concrete, interior construction, historic restoration, and seismic renovation work, the results are distinguished, high-quality projects every time. Come in and see how it's done.

MASTERS OF OUR CRAFT

CONSTRUCTION IS OUR CRAFT, and we have been refining our skills and making meaningful structures for over 40 years. Having a deep understanding of the materials we use, the tools we handle, and the needs of the people we build for results in remarkable, distinguished buildings. Validated by our recent ISO 9001 certification, a distinction possible only because of our stringent quality standards, we are proud to put our name on each and every one of our projects. Welcome to Webcor.

SPARKED BY INNOVATION

OUTSIDE-THE-BOX THINKING is a Webcor hallmark. Our commitment to innovation feeds this passion and allows us to translate our best ideas into functional solutions for you. We visualize steps ahead on each project, and this mentality separates us from our competition. We meet challenges long before they become problems. That’s when great ideas can reveal unexpected opportunities to do something unprecedented and make your project special.

WHY WE ARE UNIQUE

Our people make us stand out from the competition, and as a company, we pride ourselves on working together. Individuality is encouraged, creativity is rewarded, and passion is met with more. These are just a few ways we are unique. Come take a closer look.

WE VALUE HEALTH AND SAFETY.

We are unequivocally committed to providing a safe work environment to all of our employees and partners to ensure they leave their place of work not only as safe as they arrived but happy and proud for having truly contributed.

WE ARE HANDS-ON.

At Webcor, we love building. This means mud caked boots and jeans; it means hammering out solutions in a job trailer and making them happen. When it comes to building, we are passionate.

WE ARE OPEN DOOR.

We value the free communication of ideas and insights. We don’t hide behind protocol or reporting structures. No one at Webcor will disrespect a question or ignore a thoughtful comment.

WE HELP YOU GROW.

We want our people to love what they do and stick around. Whether you’re an estimator who wants some field experience, a project engineer who wants to do more BIM, or a seasoned superintendent who wants to work on a different building type, we will help you achieve your goals. If you are driven to excellence in whatever you do, you will be rewarded.

WE ARE ALL ABOUT TEAMWORK.

Caring for others, as much as, or more than, ourselves is who we are as the Webcor team. Fundamentally, what’s right – not who’s right – determines our actions.

WE GIVE BACK.

We take contributing to our community seriously. Whether mentoring high school students on a job site, repairing an American Legion post, supporting community hiring, building housing for families in need, or fielding a team for the CANstruction food drive, giving our skills and energy to our communities is fundamental to who we are.

WE HAVE FUN.

From building top-off barbeques to outings to the ballgame, we celebrate our accomplishments and find enjoyment in what we do. We recognize that part of a balanced life requires that we play and work.


Our work is not just a job; it is a craft. We are continuously refining and improving our process. Every project yields lessons-learned, resulting in smarter decisions and building efficiency into the framework of who we are. We innovate. We are known for leading industry breakthroughs and bringing those advantages to the job site first, time and time again.

We see our employees, clients, partners, and neighbors as our team. By aligning our common goals, we build community wherever we go. Our approach always comes back to trust. Our team relies on us because of our leadership, our willingness to adapt, and our desire to forge lasting relationships. Our depth of experience builds true confidence and makes us bold in the face of challenges. Delivering superior service, exceptional results, and unmatched employee and client satisfaction is the cornerstone of our success.
