As an industry leader we are always looking toward the future, so by expanding into new markets and growing our team, we’re able to stay at the forefront of our industry.

Our newest member of the Wohlsen team is Jeff Sturla. Jeff began his career in construction in 1980, operating his own small construction firm.
