Schiffer Mason Contractors

A reputation for excellence

Spend some time talking to Mike Maher about his company's work, and you hear pride in his voice. And with good reason.

University and high school buildings, state houses and historic renovations across Michigan and parts of the U.S. are testaments to the expertise of Schiffer Mason Contractors. 


The firm, which focuses exclusively on industrial and commercial masonry, was founded more than 40 years ago by Dan Schiffer, now retired. Today, partners Mike Maher, Mike Ellsworth, Steve Meyer and Kay Udry comprise the ownership team.


Keeping customers happy and satisfied is, of course, one of Schiffer's driving principles. Although much of the firm's work comes from successful project bids, "call-back work" from satisfied customers–no bidding required–is both rewarding and a key part of the mix. Approximately 80% of the company's work is new build, with the balance nearly equally split between standard and historic renovation.


One of Schiffer's proudest achievements locally was converting the historic Board of Water and Light building in Lansing to Accident Fund Insurance Company's national headquarters. "It was an amazing project," Mike said. Michigan's State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) has rigorous standards for historic building renovation, and Schiffer successfully overcame many complex construction challenges.


Schiffer Mason Contractors has been part of numerous projects at Michigan State University, including renovations to the Brody Complex dormitories, Mary Mayo Hall and the Plant Sciences building expansion. The firm has also done work for University of Michigan, Wayne State University, Grand Valley State University and University of Notre Dame. While Schiffer's focus is in Michigan, it has also been tapped for such high-profile work as the capitol building of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
