About Us

Founded in 1977, Building Erection Services has earned a reputation for quality and excellence, based on the essential principles of honesty, hard work and commitment. It’s a reputation that attracted Tim Olah, who built his thriving steel fabrication company based on the same standards.

A second generation union ironworker, Olah truly understands both the fabrication and the field side of a project. In 2011, Building Erection Services joined forces with Tim’s Kansas City Structural Steel. Both companies work (separately and together, depending on the job) to bring those common-sense values to life every day for the benefit of clients.

My philosophy is pretty simple: put qualified people in management and field personnel, then give them the tools they need to be successful. I believe that if you invest in the best tools and equipment, you let your team achieve a higher level of quality and efficiency with every job. If you work with junk you end up building junk. We build with quality, across the board, so we deliver quality to our clients.
