The Core Purpose of WDS Construction is to provide for WDS Families and build Communities through our Passion for construction. Nowhere is this Core Purpose more evident than with our community-focused initiative, WDS Works LLC.

When it comes to building Communities, we put our money where our mouth is, helping nonprofit organizations achieve the dreams that allows them to better fulfill their missions. Launched in 2018, WDS Works supplies the construction know-how of the WDS team to those charitable organizations with critical construction needs that they may not be able to otherwise afford.

Whether providing pro-bono construction services or working with our extensive network of suppliers and subconsultants to secure products and services at or below cost, WDS Works bridges the gap to make the impossible possible.

According to Ben Westra, founder and president of WDS Construction: “I’ve been to ribbon cutting ceremonies throughout the United States, but there is truly nothing more rewarding than those WDS Works ribbon cutting ceremonies, knowing we’ve helped another community organization achieve their dreams.”
