MLB Construction Services, LLC – Celebrating Over 70 Years of Construction Excellence

It is not often that a company can survive and thrive for over 70 years, but MLB Construction Services has managed to do just that. MLB has been building more than trust since it was established in 1947 in Albany, NY under the name McManus, Longe, Brockwehl, Inc. Beginning operations started from of the attic of the Longe household. Throughout the following years the company expanded and changed its name to MLB Industries in the mid-70’s, and later to MLB Construction Services, LLC; all while continuing their success by building a reputation of trust with clientele.

To this day, MLB has the privilege of working with some of the same great clients they have served from the beginning of business. One of which is Skidmore College, who MLB has partnered with for over 50 years. MLB is honored to have been awarded the recent Center for Integrated Sciences Building Project. This will become the home of Skidmore’s new science and learning center. The multi-phased project broke ground on May 21st and has made some
excellent headway thus far. MLB had the opportunity to provide Construction Management services for the enabling package during the summer of 2017 to help get ready for this large project undertaking. Over the next two years, the North Wing of Phase 1a will be constructed. The completed project will be a three-story building that will connect the existing Dana Science Center with new Center for Integrated Sciences. MLB feels very fortunate to have been able to work with Skidmore since 1964 and looks forward too many more years to come.

Another long-term client of MLB’s is The New York State Racing Association. MLB has recently been awarded the General Contract for a major hospitality project for Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs. This 36,000-square foot, three-story, climate-controlled “At the Rail Building” will offer a variety of hospitality options and premier modern amenities for racetrack guests to enjoy. In addition, there will be a basement level that will provide space for the building’s fully-equipped kitchen. Construction is scheduled to start promptly after the 2018 race season on September 4th. Be sure to check out the MLB Construction Facebook Page for progress photos.

MLB takes pride in the fact that historically, 90% of its business is with repeat clients. MLB continues to be a leader in the construction community completing numerous projects in various market segments. The majority of MLB’s work is in the private sector and includes healthcare, education, retail, and hospitality. The remainder is work completed with public projects and through their Facility Services division. As MLB focuses on keeping their work local and clients happy, the company is beginning to take on a bigger and more developed team expansion. MLB plans to add at least two more Project Engineers and a Project Manager before Fall rolls around. The company is currently working on a Strategic Plan for the future of MLB and how to give back to its employees along with how to service its clients better. With hopes for another 70+ years ahead, MLB is very excited to play such a large part in the future of the construction industry.
