Immanuel Presbyterian Church Renovation and Additions

St. Joan of Arc Parish

St. Mary’s Visitation Parish

Building a new house of worship is a daunting journey for any faith community. Typical construction challenges are compounded by the burden of raising the necessary funds from members who already generously support a series of ministries.

Berghammer Construction helps you turn these challenges into opportunities to create a foundation for generations of membership. We’ll help ignite your members’ passion for the project by showing what their financial support can achieve. And throughout the design and build process, Berghammer’s commitment to stewardship ensures every decision is made with the utmost fiscal prudence.

Berghammer has guided projects such as St. Mary’s Visitation Parish in Elm Grove — where Berghammer identified savings that exceeded our fee — and a remodel and expansion of Immanuel Presbyterian Church, the oldest congregation in Milwaukee, located in the Lower East Side. Throughout all our worship facility projects across the region, Berghammer has demonstrated a unique talent for achieving the right balance between artistic zeal and fiscal responsibility.


From the first “napkin sketch” to finished project, Berghammer Construction is on your side with a unique, hands on approach to pre-construction. By engaging clients at the right time — the beginning — Berghammer asks critical questions of architects, designers and owners that save time, save money and eliminate surprises.
