    The Why Of Wieland

    Everyone knows the “what” of WIELAND – providing excellence in construction. But more importantly is the “why” of WIELAND. Every day our employees strive to embody the mission, vision, and core values that WIELAND stands for. WIELAND is proud of this established culture that is made possible by the people who work here. This is #TheWhyOfWieland.

    “Working at WIELAND has been an amazing experience for me. I feel invested in this company, and not just because of the length of my employment at WIELAND (19 years), but because I’m involved in so many aspects. I work in the Accounting Department at WIELAND, which entails everything from AP/AR to jobsite visits. I like that accounting offers stability, but so many diverse functions at the same time. The culture at Wieland is energetic. I enjoy coming to work and accepting the challenge of every day or simply completing my day-to-day tasks to keep our team and company moving forward.” – Amanda Canfield, Senior Contract Administrator

    Lansing Riverfront “Rotary Park”

    WIELAND is excited to be a partner in the continuing beautification of downtown Lansing. On January 22, Lansing Mayor Andy Schor officially renamed a portion of Lansing’s riverfront to “Rotary Park,” in honor of the The Lansing Rotary Foundation’s $400,000 gift. Nearly $1M of private money was raised, while the Capital Region Community Foundation is providing over $1M of matching funds. WIELAND will act as the Construction Advisor on the project, which will transform a portion of Lansing’s riverfront into a destination park.

This is #TheWhyOfWieland.

    “At WIELAND I like that I have responsibility and that my supervisor doesn’t micro manage me. I can ask questions and people make me feel okay about not knowing everything. I also like that I can talk to people who I don’t directly work with. We all play different roles, but we can appreciate each other on a personal level. In a previous job I never so much as met the CEO or CFO, much less socialize with them. It’s different at WIELAND, and that’s something special.” – Candy Caldwell, Asst. Pre-Construction Manager
