Commitment, Quality and Value

Principles that have shaped our company for more than 85 years. We recognize that quality construction practices are an investment, a way to help our clients meet their objectives. On every project, we work closely with the client to gain an understanding of their facility needs, budget requirements, site conditions and organizational goals. Our multi-disciplinary team approach enables us to develop facilities that are appropriate and effective, as well as aesthetically distinctive.

We value our relationship with owners, design firms, subcontractors and vendors working as a team to achieve the highest level of communication from project inception to completion. Quality begins with a well defined scope that is achieved by all members of the team - that means bringing construction technology to the table early, a viable step in avoiding budgetary constraints or misconceptions. This partnership is essential in delivering projects within the timeframes outlined and providing a "win-win" scenario for the project team and most importantly - the owner.

As a result of these high standards, we employ staff who shares in our vision. With many full-time employees, Selzer-Ornst seeks personnel who illustrate initiative and commitment and believe, as we do, the importance of delivering quality and value to all of our clients. We recognize that quality construction practices are an investment, a way to help our clients meet their objectives.

What Our Clients Say

"Selzer-Ornst has been able to put together a high-level team that has been instrumental in the success of the rejuvenation of the Ambassador Hotel and I am pleased to have your company as part of the project."

Richard A. Wiegand, Owner, Ambassador Hotel

"I appreciate Selzer-Ornst's willingness to partner with Willis from the initial concept of design to the final touches. Your company more than justified our selection decision to partner from not only the ease to work with and the final product, but as importantly, the ability to meet timelines and budgets."
