Gundlach Champion

Gundlach Champion has been involved in constructing university projects for over 100 years, when our founder (Herman Gundlach, Sr.) was building his business back in the early 1900s. It was then that our earliest university work began, starting with Michigan Technological University with the construction of the Chemistry building (1902), Civil/Mining/Engineering building (1902), the Metallurgy building (1903), the Sigma Rho Fraternity house (1906), and the Library and Museum (1907).

Gundlach’s reputation for excellence earned him early projects at Northern Michigan University and Finlandia University as well. In 1913, he constructed the NMU Administration Building and the Assembly House & Gym. At Finlandia, Gundlach along with Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen erected Nikander Hall.

In 1945, Herman Gundlach, Sr.’s son, “Winks” became president of the firm and continued his father’s work constructing university buildings until his death in 2005. Today, our firm continues the tradition of providing project excellence to these same universities and many others.

Gundlach Champion has been part of educational communities for nearly a century. Our planning, design and construction of these facilities goes across the board from private schools and elementary schools, to secondary schools and universities. We are honored to be involved in the construction of facilities that strengthen the future of any community. A list of completed projects is located in the table below.
