Our Deep History
It all began with Ray Baker, the founder, who laid the building blocks of Baker Construction’s success in the early 50’s. The 18 year-old Ray worked for other contractors for three years, learning the block and brick laying trade.
In 1952 at only 21 years of age, he established his own business. He began laying block basements for individual houses during the suburban construction. Starting in Allen Park, Lincoln Park and Riverview, Ray literally laid the foundations for emerging communities. He eventually expanded his business to encompass laying block and installing brick veneer for entire subdivisions in Berkley, the eastern suburbs and in communities throughout the Detroit metropolitan area.
Baker branched out into apartment and small commercial construction. Tackling one of its largest apartment complexes of the 60’s, Baker performed work on various phases of the Lake in the Woods complex located on the shores of Belleville’s Ford Lake. In the same time period, Baker shifted the majority of his firm’s work to the Ann Arbor Area.
Working in the business since the age of twelve, the Baker brothers, Tom and Tim officially took over the helm in 1995. They are currently grooming a third generation for leadership roles in the family business.
Baker Construction now performs work in all segments of the commercial market including; industrial, institutional, health care, educational, municipal, retail and religious.
