About Us


Our mission is to provide reliable expertise to deliver quality, workable, and effective building solutions for today’s buyers at a reasonable cost. Whelan & Curry Construction Services, Inc. was founded in late 1992 by Roger T. Whelan and Michael Q. Curry during an economically challenging time during which the key factor in a buyer’s decision-making process was the bottom line.  The year 2017 marks an exciting milestone for the company as we embark on our 25th year in business!

Reasonable cost was, and continues to be, central to both our building philosophy and to the needs of the Central New York area buyer. Since 1992, our firm has maintained a steady growth pattern while earning the trust of many local and national decision-makers.

To mark the beginning of a new era in the firm’s history, in 2015 Mr. Curry retired and Mr. Christopher Corfield became Vice President of the company.  As of January 1, 2017, to complete the transition of the company to the next generation, Mr. Corfield has assumed the role of  President, bringing his design/build knowledge and experience to the forefront of our business.  Mr. Whelan will remain active in the company’s operations.

The structural integrity of any business or building begins with its foundation. Each member of our team shares the philosophy that a strong business is built upon relationships with satisfied customers, which will lead to repeat business and valuable references for use in negotiating work with new clients. Our projects and our reputations were built on this philosophy. Now, we are building our business on it. Together, we have the right combination of work ethic, experience in local construction, knowledge of construction methods and techniques, and understanding of the value placed by the client on quality, time, and bottom-line cost.

The key to our success is the satisfaction of the client. This means having the ability to adapt to the different needs of the client and project type.  For some, the streamlined design-build approach takes the worry and uncertainty out of the picture.  For others, our competitive bid proposals give peace of mind in bottom line costs.  And for all, it’s our team’s commitment to total service and attentiveness to the demands of the project from concept to completion.   Our clients benefit from our years of experience in the local construction market, the relationships that we have established, and the talented, quality-conscious subcontractor base that we have developed during our 50-plus combined years of experience.

In a partnering process, we assemble all required professionals and establish the necessary relationships with them in order to realize the common goal of our clients’ project. This partnership is one of efficiency and cost effectiveness with an increased opportunity to use current methods, techniques, and quality products. Continuous evaluation and timely responsiveness are guaranteed throughout the design and construction process. It is a professional system of checks and balances, cooperation, communication, and accountability. We will take the time to fully understand the demands and challenges of the project while working in the best interest of our client to develop both a project design and a construction budget that maximizes the value of the project.

Let us show you why Whelan & Curry is the trusted repeat builder for so many local and national businesses.
