Block Build MKE 2023

We recently came together to participate in Revitalize Milwaukee – changing the lives of homeowners by providing free home repairs. Block Build MKE 2023. This incredible initiative brings volunteers and community partners together, with a common goal of transforming a neighborhood block in just one weekend.

As part of our commitment to giving back to the community, our dedicated team members volunteered their time, skills, and sweat equity to complete a range of repairs and beautification updates. From accessibility improvements on the porch and in the bathroom, painting, tree trimming, and other general repair efforts — we covered a wide array of tasks to uplift and enhance the home that we were working on. Together, we are building a better Milwaukee!

V.P. Preconstruction and Principal, Tiffany May, on Panel at Women in Business Symposium

On August 23, 2023, our team had the pleasure of attending the BizTimes Media Women in Business Symposium, and what an incredible experience it was! This event proved to be a perfect blend of inspiration, learning, and empowerment, leaving us motivated and energized.

A particular highlight was watching our Vice President Preconstruction Principal, Tiffany May, take center stage as she participated in a panel discussion. It was an honor to witness Tiffany share her insights and experiences with other accomplished women leaders from southeastern Wisconsin.

Beyond the educational aspect, the camaraderie we experienced as a team made the day truly memorable. Seeing the ladies in our office come together, supporting and cheering each other on as we attended the event was uplifting.

Lastly, thanks to BizTimes Media for organizing this transformative event and Tiffany May for eloquently representing our team on the panel! Together, we strive to create a more inclusive and diverse business landscape.

Work Begins at Wisconsin Shower Door

We are thrilled to announce that our special projects team has officially started a construction project for Wisconsin Shower Door! The project entails expanding their existing building with a newly acquired neighboring property. This expansion will span an impressive 10,500 square feet, accompanied by renovations to some sections of their current 38,000 square feet facility.
From the beginning, we worked closely with Wisconsin Shower Door to develop a comprehensive budget and timeline for their expansion project, ensuring a seamless connection between the two properties. Thank you, SEH, for partnering with us too! We appreciate your expertise and collaboration throughout the process.
Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting project! We can’t wait to see the final result, where Wisconsin Shower Door’s operations will be enhanced, and their vision realized.

St. Leonard Catholic Church & School’s Columbarium Project Begins

Faithbridge Church Addition Completed

We recently completed a 9,686-square-foot expansion for Faithbridge Church in Franksville, Wisconsin. The main goals for the project were to provide much-needed space for their growing youth ministry program and to consolidate their childcare program from two locations to this location. The project included a new entrance, collaboration spaces, a kitchenette, offices, classrooms, two additional restrooms, and a youth space with a stage and playground area.

We were brought in early on the project to help control the budget and offer constructability guidance. To achieve this, we carefully sourced budget-friendly materials without compromising the modern look the church was aiming for to attract a younger demographic. We worked closely with Plunkett Raysich Architects, LLP to achieve this goal.

In addition to managing a large construction project, the church underwent several organizational transitions. We tailored our approach to make it easy for our Faithbridge so they could focus on managing their transitions while having confidence that the project execution was meeting schedule and budget expectations. Our team also maintained a separation between the construction areas and the church while the church remained open so that they could continue operating during construction.

In addition, we also ensured that everything was completed on time so that they could open their Childcare Learning Center early enough for parents to enroll their children before school started back up again after the summer break.

The end results? The added space was turned over on schedule and within budget and now has all the space it needs for its growing congregation!
