We’re building a foundation of inclusivity, respect, and opportunity.

At Erhardt Construction, we believe that when people experience respect, inclusivity, and opportunity they are more creative, impactful, and fulfilled in their work.

We strive for a community of cultural understanding, genuine relationships, and intentional belonging for our team members and project partners.  That’s why we actively stand against racism, harassment, and all forms of discrimination.
