State University. After graduating, Erin gained 12 years of experience in the title
industry where she managed residential and commercial transactions, then
eventually changing her direction to analyzing the finances of the joint venture
branch of the company. After 12 years of experience and having her fifth child, Erin made the decision that it was time for a change. Lucas approached Erin about an opportunity at Viking Construction

for their growing company. After much thought and prayer, she was thrilled to join

Josh Ulberg developed a passion for the building trades at a young age. Growing up
in the building industry, Josh loved to help his father on jobsites and that love grew
into a very clear vision that the construction industry was the career path for him.
After graduating from Ferris State University with a Building Construction
Technology degree, he went into the residential construction field full time. From
2000 to 2007, Josh worked with his father and brother building new homes and
fabricating custom cabinetry. In 2007, Josh began his sole venture as Josh Ulberg
Builders, LLC. At this time Josh’s passion became a healthy obsession for developing
a superior custom home tied with creating personal client relationship that would
last a lifetime. With this mindset, Josh was able to accumulate many successful
projects into his portfolio and customer loyalty relationships that brought him
repeat business. Knowing that God is always in control, he had another plan for
Josh. So, with much prayer, and now thankfulness, Josh and Lucas merged their
talents to form Viking Construction Group in 2017. Josh resides in Jenison, MI with
his wife, Kimberly, and three children.
Lucas Ulberg was drawn into the field of architecture and construction at a very
young age. From building little projects with his father’s left-over scrap materials to
hand sketching houses sitting at the dining table, his passion for architecture and
building is attributed to being surrounded by construction his entire life. Prior to
starting Viking Construction Group, both Lucas and Josh worked together with their
father building homes and custom cabinetry. From 2007 to 2016, Lucas worked as a
Project Manager and Manager of Property Development for a large-scale
commercial construction firm, as well as a hotel development company. He has
managed many projects ranging from Interior Build-Outs, Food Service, Office,
Industrial Facilities, Restaurants, and Hotels. After much thought and prayer, both

formed Viking Construction Group in 2017. Lucas holds a degree in Architectural
Drafting/Construction Management. He currently resides in Zeeland, MI with his wife, Tara,
and four amazing children.
