WML is active in the public and private infrastructure markets and we focus on the construction of water/wastewater treatment plants, pump stations, pipelines, and underground utilities. In order to maintain maximum control of safety, quality, cost, and schedule on our projects, we self-perform earthwork, structural concrete, mechanical/civil piping, and equipment installation. Our estimators and project managers are directly involved in a variety of construction operations.
WML provides quality contracting services in an ethical manner and at a fair price, while maintaining controlled growth in a safe, stable, and rewarding environment. Our philosophy is to delegate responsibility and authority to the operating level. Since 1945, we have modeled our company slogan “Progress through Performance” by having competent, intelligent, and experienced personnel actively directing the tactical and strategic operations.
We believe in intensive project management with focus on the four pillars of project success: Safety, Quality, Schedule, and Cost. Our Project Managers are hired from construction management and engineering programs at universities across the country and from within the construction industry. As a result, we are able to leverage the latest and best construction practices with proven experience to ensure project success.
We take great pride in our ability to meet and exceed our clients’ expectations. Our teamwork approach between management, skilled craftsmen, and support personnel has enabled us to become an industry leader. It is to this team of highly dedicated employees that we look to and depend upon for our continued progress and success.
