Community Involvement

Wurster Construction

Community Involvement

Being involved in our community is more than an after-hours commitment for Wurster Construction. Fred Wurster was a strong believer in paying your social dues, giving back to the community that has allowed Wurster to earn a living. This means Wurster’s name is as sturdy as our buildings.

We encourage all of our employees to get involved with a cause that has special meaning to them. We believe in growing our employees as individuals, and appreciate the drive and energy that results from getting involved by giving back. Adding value to the community and our business aren’t separate missions at Wurster; they intersect on a daily basis.

Being involved means more than just donating sums of money. Wurster believes in individual and team involvement by giving our time, our skills, and ourselves. From serving on industry or civic boards, to helping run the Indianapolis 500 Festival, to sharing our construction and building expertise with Habitat for Humanity; these are just a few of the many endeavors supported by members of the Wurster team.
