Amat Victoria Curam: The Motto of MKE Construction


"Within our collective of masterful artisans, designs can reach their peak potential knowing that all resources are easily within reach." -Jake Knox

“Amat Victoria Curam” (Latin for victory loves preparation) is the motto that Matt Cerra, owner of MKE Contracting, applies to his business.  

Matt has over twenty years of quality custom contracting and construction experience. He started his business in 2013 after years of working for builders doing rough and finish carpentry. He would often get requests from friends and family who were unhappy with their own contractors and would want the work corrected. Matt would essentially take over the remodel. He quickly realized that he could provide better quality and decided to open his own contracting business. 

"My philosophy is that I will not start a remodel project until all aspects of the project have been planned and selected. All materials are ordered and waiting for install. This leads to reduced project timelines, smooth project operation, and overall higher quality" says Matt. This is why customers continue to return to him and refer to him. 

MKE Contracting treats each and every project as if it were their own home. We take extra care to make sure that the home owner receives exactly what they want for the budget we are given.
