Wickersham Construction & Engineering was founded in 1906 by John H. Wickersham. Starting in 1910, Wickersham constructed more than 24 of The Hershey Company’s original corporate facilities. More recently Wickersham acted as the general contractor for several expansion projects at Hersheypark, The Hershey Company, Milton Hershey School and Hershey Medical Center.

Today, Wickersham Construction provides a diverse range of services to commercial, institutional and industrial clients. These services include traditional general construction, design/build construction and construction management. Wickersham’s industrial services division meets the special challenges of performing small projects in an existing facility.

Recent Pennsylvania clients who chose to build blue with Wickersham include R.R. Donnelley, Lancaster; St. Michael’s Lutheran Church, Unionville; Eastern Lebanon County Municipal Authority and Wayside Presbyterian Church, Landisville.

Maryland projects have been completed for Tidewater Outfitters corporate offices in Havre de Grace and the Perryville Middle School.
