Senior Living Expertise


Founded in 1932, Messer Construction Co. has built a reputation for providing outstanding value and construction experiences to owners. Messer has proven experience delivering award-winning senior living facilities for clients such as Graceworks Lutheran Services, Franklin United Methodist Community and Madonna Manor. We are consistently ranked as one of Modern Healthcare magazine’s “Top 20 Construction Managers.” The Indiana Association of Homes & Services for the Aging (IAHSA) also recently awarded Messer “Associate Member of the Year” status for our commitment to senior living.

Our project experience includes the following types of facilities: skilled nursing, memory support, assisted living, wellness center, continuing care retirement center, and more.

Commitment to Innovation

We are a leader in innovative building – both from how you purchase your construction to the building process itself. Messer is committed to increasing collaboration and eliminating project waste. For those reasons, we will continue to push the boundaries, so that we deliver the highest value for our life sciences owners.


Our ability to work in occupied environments with minimal disruption to residents and facility operations is paramount to project success on an existing campus. We employ careful phasing and scheduling to avoid disruption of services, so we enhance the resident’s experience, not hinder it.

The results speak for themselves. Messer was recently received first place in the Associated General Contractors of America Construction Safety Excellence Awards, in the building category for 1,000,001 to 4 million work hours for our achievements in this area.
