A History Built on Integrity, Quality, and Excellence

Sorensen Gross has a 96-year tradition of integrity, quality and excellence in the construction industry, and our history has a lot to do with who we are today. Sorensen Gross Construction Company was founded in 1925 in Grand Rapids, Michigan by John Sorensen and Robert Gross. The company moved to Flint in 1927 and quickly established itself as the city’s premiere builder.
In 1966, Ghassan Saab joined Sorensen Gross and soon realized the opportunity to lead a company with a solid reputation and a loyal, competent staff. Accepting the role of CEO in 1972, Mr. Saab has continuously overseen the company’s management since then, embodying the Sorensen Gross ideal which is commitment to the client through excellence, value, service and integrity.
Sorensen Gross has helped clients complete thousands of projects throughout the United States and internationally that have created jobs, transformed infrastructure, increased access to vital services, and built communities from the ground up. Differentiated by the excellence of our people and a relentless drive to deliver the most successful results, we align with our clients’ needs to deliver lasting and effective impact.  
Over the years, projects have grown in size and complexity due to modern technology, tighter budgets, and greater time constraints. Responding to meet these needs, Sorensen Gross offers a variety of delivery methods and services which include Construction Management, Design Build, General Contracting, International Services, Management Consulting, Staffing, and Specialized Trades.
Sorensen Gross continues to grow its solid client base in Commercial, Industrial, Educational, Medical, Municipal, and Multi-family Residential building applications. Our contributions to the built environment have ranged in scope and size from minor repair work to the complete construction of hospitals, university buildings, office buildings, mixed-use residential buildings, airports, and water and wastewater treatment facilities.
In 2021, Sorensen Gross was proud to welcome Christian Comair as a partner. Mr. Comair is the chairman of GET Engineering & Contracting, a mega project engineer and builder with over 7,000 employees, and The PIMA Group, which includes 18 companies across Europe, North America, and the Middle East.  This exciting new partnership will allow both powerhouse companies to expand their reach and impact across the construction industry in an expanding geographical footprint.
We are Building on the Past and Constructing the Future.
