A Career in Building
Fred spent nearly 20 years in the construction industry perfecting his trade skills. Then in 1993, Fred and his wife, Annette, started Schramm Construction. Their goal as a commercial / industrial construction contractor was to complete large projects while providing businesses with the personal service they deserve. Initially working with a major home building developer, they built residential clubhouses and swimming pools in Chicago’s western suburbs. As Schramm’s reputation grew so did the business. Today, the Schramm team provides general contracting and design build services for commercial and industrial construction.
Our Construction Business is Personal
Big or small, we keep a close eye on all of our projects. When a client hires us, they work directly with the principals. Our goal has always been to make sure the customer is treated fairly and with respect. Staying in tune with new processes, products, and technology, we bring value to each project. Our project management software “Procore” is used to streamline all project workflows. When we look at a project, we decide which subcontractors would be the best fit for the project type.
The foundation on which Fred built the company has never changed. It’s our job to help the client meet or exceed their goals in quality, cost, schedule and safety.
