OPEN. HONEST. UNDISGUISED.
To be frank is to be honest. For over a century, building fairly is just what we've done. Understanding yourself helps you understand your clients. Knowing who you are not is equally important. Frank Rewold & Sons is not the biggest contractor. But, for the right job and client, we are the right contractor!
Widow of John Francis Dodge, of Dodge Motor Car Company, Matilda Dodge Wilson co-founded Oakland University on her 1,400-acre estate, Meadow Brook Farms. This is where she hired established carpenter Frank Rewold as her personal handyman. Decades of building, fixing, and problem solving pass as Frank Rewold teaches his young apprentice and son, Roy Rewold, tools of the trade. Roy later completed the construction of Sunset Terrace, a retirement home and guesthouse for Matilda.
Today, after a century since inception, Frank Rewold & Sons still regularly performs construction services for the university and other surrounding colleges, communities, businesses, and organizations throughout Michigan.
From the beginning, Frank Rewold’s carpentry and relationship skills conveyed facets of his future company’s distinct character. Since 1918, we have retained a people-focused, honest outlook that seems to escape larger construction companies today. To be sure, FRS constructs multi-million dollars of construction annually, but is by no means the largest contractor. Our projects express their own candidness and character -- these qualities are what make us Rewold.
