JE Dunn Construction Reaches Centennial Milestone

KANSAS CITY, MO — One hundred years ago, John Ernest Dunn started a company, JE Dunn Construction, based on the principles of hard work, integrity, and excellence. Dunn's principles have become the cornerstone of the century-old company and the eighth-largest general contractor in the U.S. In recognition of the company's 100th anniversary, JE Dunn will continue its legacy of giving back and showcase its partnerships with employees, clients, and partners.

"This year-long campaign reflects our past and celebrates our future," said Tim Dunn, Chairman of the Board and Chief Investment Officer at JE Dunn. "JE Dunn not only transforms skylines, but our employees also build authentic partnerships that transform local communities through philanthropic efforts."

To honor this milestone — which comes on the heels of Chairman Emeritus Bill Dunn Sr.'s 100th birthday — the company has planned local and national celebrations that include employee and client events, a commemorative logo for construction site signage and employee gear, and a digital media campaign featuring 100 stories that showcase the company's history and legacy.

A national centennial initiative, Building a Legacy: A Century of Generosity, will kick off in 2024, celebrating the employees and communities that have been foundational to the company's success and longevity. Ten organizations will be selected by employees to receive a gift of $100,000 to empower their work in the communities where JE Dunn employees live, work, and build, for a total impact of $1 million nationwide.
