Quality

Quality is an essential component of our culture at Michuda Construction. Quality control, both on and off the job sites is critical to maintaining an innovative environment and reputable product. Procedure implementation, paired with constant measurement and documentation, keeps us at the forefront of the industry.

Michuda Construction is dedicated to continuous process improvement in every stage of the building environment. This dedication includes actively encouraging employees to generate, present, and adopt new processes, technology, and operating approaches. We are especially alert to the best practices of our partners and clients, always learning from experts from within and outside of the construction industry.

Innovation

Continuous Process Improvement happens organically at Michuda, due in large part to our Lean Construction initiatives. Employees know that their ideas are welcome, and we are committed to trying new ways of doing things—thoughtfully and methodically.

Innovation can be as simple as bringing together several existing ideas into a new approach, or as complex as completely changing the way problems and issues are solved. One example of this is Michuda Mobile, our newest deployment of jobsite technology. Building Information Modeling (BIM) and secure cloud-based access to the most up-to-date construction documents are just a few additional examples of our forward-thinking technology infrastructure.

Safety

We don’t just say that Safety is our #1 priority—we prove it. Every worker on our jobsites is required, at all times, to have the proper credentials for his or her role. Superintendents check workers in and out of the jobsites, they record their attendance at our Daily Huddles, and they check off when they’re issued safety vests each day before work activities begin. The accuracy of our documentation is further assured through Michuda Mobile, our web-enabled technology. We also have job-specific safety training for workers in the field, as well as location-specific requirements for the employees on each of their individual jobs.

Sustainability

The Michuda “Lean Philosophy” is one of our guiding organizational principles. We strive beyond preserving natural resources and minimizing our carbon footprint. To preserve our family legacy, we must ensure the well-being of future generations by continually improving energy efficiency and reducing waste. As such, we provide services that create comfortable, durable, environments with minimal impact on the ecosystem. We are pioneers, doing business with more than our current generation in mind, but the generations to come.

Philanthropy

Our century of success has come as a direct result of the clients, partners, and communities we’ve served. To honor that, we are always seeking opportunities to promote and benefit their legacies with our financial support.
