HISTORY

Minnesota-based Bossardt Corporation was established in 1983 by founder, John Bossardt. The organization would go on to pioneer the use of the Construction Manager as Advisor delivery method, making it the foremost choice of most public agencies across the state of Minnesota. 

Bossardt Corporation would also go on to build many remarkable projects including Paisley Park, Chanhassen High School, and the Ivy Tower.

In 2013, with its founder nearing retirement, Bossardt Corporation joined forces with a leading Engineering firm, Wenck Associates, to become the construction division of a much larger organization. With the merger, it was time for the next generation of leaders to step up and take the reigns.

Long-time Bossardt employee and current Partner, Andy Hoffmann, was promoted to Vice President; company veteran Todd Iverson became a Project Executive, and a several other Bossardt Corporation veterans stepped up to take senior roles within the company. 

In 2015, 2 years after initially merging with Wenck Associates, Bossardt Corporation was rebranded as Wenck Construction. With a new brand, next generation of leadership, and clear path forward, the company continued to invest in its people, technology, equipment, and processes.

The company began to focus on diversifying its service offerings, and focusing on a healthy mix of public and private work.

March of 2019 brought about an exciting new era for the company when existing management – 2 industry veterans and long-standing employees, Andy Hoffmann and Joe Uhlhorn – acquired the company, officially launching as Hoffmann + Uhlhorn Construction, Inc. (H+U Construction). 

With the acquisition, H+U’s partners could now focus entirely on our core services and clients, while continuing to build upon the legacy of great people, projects, and partnerships that John Bossardt had first envisioned in 1983.
