A native of Fort Wayne, Indiana, Dave Zurbuch, the owner and founder of Zurbuch Construction, is a graduate of Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana with a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering.
Dave, whose father also was a builder, began his career as an engineer for a bridge builder, a path he followed for 11 years. When he started his family, he wanted more flexibility and for his life to work better for a growing family. At the same time, he wanted to keep the hands-on aspect of the work and the sense of accomplishment that came with building. In 2005, he started Zurbuch Construction.
From the first screened porch to a new, custom home, Dave relies not only on his engineering and building background, but the skills he has developed as the father of five. According to Dave, “It takes a lot of scheduling and a lot of managing.”
Dave is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers.
