Revisit and Renovate Institutional | BOGNER CONSTRUCTION CO. – COLLEGE OF WOOSTER SCOT CENTER Working in Ohio since 1897 and maintaining a quality reputation for just as long, Bogner Construction Co. tends to earn work from many of the same clients. Along with the hundreds of projects it has delivered for Wooster, Ohio-based The College of Wooster since 1901, the company has maintained a century-old relationship with a number of other clients. They include the Ohio Agricultural Research & Development Center, the Gerstenslager Co., the Wooster Brush Co., Wayne County Commissioners, Wooster Area Chamber of Commerce, Wooster City Schools, the City of Wooster and PNC Bank. The company, which is now in its third generation of ownership with a fourth generation also working in the company, is led by President Ted Bogner and his cousin Robert Bogner, vice president, secretary and treasurer. They are grandsons of company founder Theodore I. Bogner. In the past couple of years, Ted Bogner says the company has had the pleasure of renovating seven projects that were originally built by his grandfather. He says the experience reminds him and others at the company why they are involved in the construction business, especially during times such as these. “If you don’t get excited about putting something where nothing has ever been before or taking an old building and bringing it to modern standards, and something an owner can use, then you are in the wrong business,” he says. “It has to be about more than the monetary reward.

It also boasts a list of repeat clients with whom it has developed relationships for the past century. In fact, Ohio’s The College of Wooster, which was the University of Wooster when Bogner first performed masonry work there, repeatedly has hired Bogner to work on its campus since 1901. To date, Bogner has performed 30 new construction and total facility renovation projects for the college, as well as hundreds of smaller projects, including additions, remodeling, partial renovations and site improvements.
