BUILT FOR GOOD IS BUILT FOR LIFE.

To enhance it and at times, protect and save it. It’s part of the culture. Part of the system. Part of the promise.

We have a motto at Walbridge, “If it’s not safe, I won’t do it and I won’t let others do it.” It’s something we live by.

The story of Walbridge’s abiding commitment to safety began with the first major project the company built – the Book Building in downtown Detroit. According to Detroit Saturday Night in December 1916, “There was not a single death or serious accident during its progress…unique in the history of big buildings.”

This dedication to protecting lives has been at the essence of the company for seven generations.
