Rendering of the Garage

Passion. This one word embodies Mortenson’s approach to community involvement.  It is their common denominator among their offices and project sites and is a commitment to reinforce their company’s core values of Trust, Responsibility, Safety, Teamwork, Service, and Stewardship within the communities they live and work.

Over the past year, Mortenson Construction partnered with Milwaukee Habitat to salvage approximately seven tons of materials from a building demolition project on the Marquette University campus.  We also worked with them to salvage materials from houses prior to demolition on the St. Camillus campus.

As members of the construction industry and our local business community, we seek your support to join Mortenson on our building efforts this year. Monetary support will be complemented by meaningful corporate sponsorship recognition.  In addition, we are confident that your company and team members will be enriched by the volunteer experience if interested.
