The Christman Company

A good name takes a long time to build, and The Christman Company has been striving to do just that since 1894 when Heinrich Christmana hard worker with simple but strong valueslaid its foundation. Today, we’re proud to be among the country’s oldest, most respected construction firms, but prouder yet of our cherished long-term relationships. Christman’s services include construction management, general contracting, design/build, program management, real estate development, facilities analysis and planning, and self-perform skilled trades. We specialize in diverse market segments, including historic preservation, corporate office, healthcare, higher and K12 education, industrial and power, government, and others. 100% employee-and-management-owned, Christman ranks #110 in the Engineering News-Record ENR 400 list of top contractors nationally and #7 in the 2018 “Fast 50” list of Detroit’s fastest-growing companies. We currently have more than $3 billion in construction underway managed by 450 professional employees in 10 offices throughout the country.

Our company was founded by Heinrich G. Christman in 1894 on a set of fundamental business principles that, over time, have become known to us and others as "The Christman Way."

Altogether, they express our Purpose, Vision and Mission as follows    
Our Purpose

Our Goal
To be the most sought after in the markets we serve.

Central to Christman’s core commitment to “be a great place to work” are the qualities of mutual respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie. Enjoying the challenges of our work and each other makes the work we do together exciting and fulfilling. Whether it’s being part of something more than 100 years in the making, peer-nominated employee award programs, professional development opportunities, helping the community through our “Be Constructive” giving and volunteerism program, or enjoying each day on the job with a talented team of colleagues, there are countless reasons that Christman attracts the best of the best.
