Building quality relationships since 1977

Wellman & Zuck was founded in 1977 by two small-town boys – Brian Wellman & George Zuck – with a vision to build quality buildings that were beautifully crafted, highly functional and would stand tall for many years to come.

After forty-four years of continuous execution of their original vision, Chris Abbey and Kevin McCarthy have stepped in to carry on Wellman & Zuck’s construction legacy. With an expertise in Commercial, Mixed use and affordable housing projects, Wellman & Zuck is poised for another 44 years of producing beautifully crafted buildings.

Our team prides itself on honest business dealings, and we truly care about our clients and their projects

We believe in building the best quality we can. Our unabashed goal is to make clients so happy, that they’re excited to work with us on their next project. Many of Wellman & Zuck’s projects come from repeat customers.
