How Did They Do It? Wellen Construction


It’s all about the teamwork. Teamwork was how Wellen Construction kept everyone safe during the pandemic. The team needed to collectively develop policies for everyone to follow, according to Julie Dooley, Office Manager. Some of the staff collaborated on creating the procedures to keep Wellen staff, clients, and partners safe on site. Another team member made a brief survey affirming health status with a quick AR scan before starting work. Another team member found hand sanitizer when it was nearly impossible to find. Everyone pivoted together so they could continue working. “It’s a terrific place to work and we have some great team members. We’ve been very fortunate,” Julie said.

Teamwork is also the reason Wellen grew its staff 161.54% in the last 5 years. Wellen started as a high-end residential builder, then started offering commercial work. Wellen settled into a niche of building medical offices. As this newer venture has exploded, they’ve also continued with high-end residential building.

The Wellen team is excited to implement Syscon’s Field Integrated Time (F.I.T.) System to make collecting field time easier for their growing field staff. F.I.T. supports the team-wide goal of being paperless. “Throughout it all, Syscon has been terrific,” Julie says. They’ve also been hosting Sage 100 Contractor with Syscon since 2014.
