Meeting the evolving educational needs of 21st-century students requires a physical space as stimulating as the material itself.

Berghammer Construction sees every educational building project as an opportunity to strengthen communities by providing dynamic, efficient learning areas that inspire tomorrow’s leaders. Those spaces can be found in daycares, public elementary schools, charter high schools and technical colleges throughout southeastern Wisconsin. What they all have in common is Berghammer’s commitment to supporting educators’ vision through innovation and strong fiscal stewardship.

Central to this approach is Berghammer’s design-build philosophy. It starts when the project is little more than a napkin sketch. Berghammer asks critical questions to help shape a design in the context of the available budget. By coming at the project from this direction, Berghammer lends efficiency to the entire process. Surprises are eliminated and budgets and timelines are met.

Pre-construction Services for Education

In order to meet the changing demands of today’s school construction requirements, a true builder starts very early in the process. At Berghammer Construction, we work hand-in-hand with architects and school leaders to examine all options in order to effectively balance school needs with the construction budget available. As your educational facility construction company, Berghammer starts early in the process, providing proven pre-construction services.


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.
