Organized in 1910 by Carpenter/Surveyor Dominic Camosy, the firm prospered for the next forty years as a design-builder of homes and commercial facilities. In the 1950’s the company expanded its territory and its market expertise to include: governmental, educational, ecclesiastical, health care, and industrial sector work, in addition to commercial and residential buildings in southeastern Wisconsin and northeastern Illinois.
During the 1960’s the corporation reorganized into a departmentalized form, being among the first construction companies in the area to utilize full time, college educated Project Managers and full time Estimators/Purchasing Agents in order to more professionally manage the entire construction process. It was also during this time that the firm became an area leader in the use of Electronic Data Processing, with computerized unit costs being used for both the estimating and operations functions by means of an in-house, general purpose, main frame computer.
From 1976 to 1993 the Camosy firm continued to grow , being named nine times by Engineering News-Record Magazine (ENR) as one of the “TOP 400” CONTRACTORS in the nation, and winning many other industry awards and honors.By 1986, the company recognized that significant overhead cost savings and other benefits would be realized by combining its Illinois construction operations, its Wisconsin construction operations, and its construction management operations into one single entity.
Today, Camosy Construction is a full-service, construction management, general contracting and design/build firm. Our primary market sector is providing Construction Management services to Public Sector clients, accounting for 65% to 75% of our work volume on an annual basis. Much of this recent work has been for Police Station projects. Our Public Sector clients include Counties, Cities, Towns, Villages, Park Districts, Fire Protection Districts, and Library Districts making Camosy extremely familiar and well versed in providing Construction Management in compliance with local and state public procurement requirements.
As a mid-size, family owned, third generation, locally based firm that has been in business for more than 100 years we have worked hard to become a lean, efficient service provider that is able to provide best value to our clients. We maintain a yearly volume that allows us to provide the sort of personal service from senior staff that is not often seen in the construction industry today. Your project won’t be just another job in our office, it will be a key part of building the history and legacy of Camosy that started in 1910 and continues to this day.
