Undertaking a $70 million expansion with a significant economic impact, this project’s success was critical to the company, the community, and the state. To represent their best interests, Waukesha Electric selected Consolidated Construction as their Owner’s Representative for this complicated, 140,000 square foot expansion to their building and infrastructure.
“This is the largest expansion in the history of our company. It is a very high profile project for our company and for the community. We needed an expert Owner’s Representative to confidently show us how to get this done correctly. The Consolidated Construction team got our attention from day one due to their ability to listen to our needs and to customize a solution to meet them. In all areas of project execution — economic development, design, community interface, contract management, and construction — the CCC team has exceeded our high expectations. A capital project of this size and complexity is difficult to keep on schedule and on budget; it is a testament to CCC’s ability to work in our best interests that we are achieving our goals. I would highly recommend CCC to anyone considering a capital project in the future.”

In order to meet unforgiving harvest schedules of their agricultural customers, Central Storage and Warehouse Company could take no chances in their contractor selection. They needed speed and cold storage facility expertise to build a 45,000 square foot building in under three months. Consolidated delivered in 76 days, including cool down.
“Given our experiences with some other general contractors, we were at first very skeptical that the job could be completed in the allotted time, but CCC’s assurances and enthusiasm convinced us to proceed. Now, less than 90 days later, we have a completed facility, done on schedule, with no cut corners, and an impressive standard of quality. We were consistently amazed by CCC’s responsiveness during construction, the smooth integration of their crews and all of their subs, and the speed with which the project came together. I would highly recommend Consolidated as a company that can get the job done fast and done right.”
A highly orchestrated workflow and 7-days-a-week schedule were required to meet the owner’s equipment delivery schedule of this 60,000 square foot paper converting facility. The project was completed in 70 days on a fast-track schedule and Economic Development Associates helped secure public-sector incentives for the project.
“Honestly, I was fairly certain that no one could meet our schedule. As the project progressed I became more and more convinced that we just might pull this off. Joe, Jason, and the rest of the guys did a great job. There were no excuses, and they finished on time. I’m not sure any other contractor could have.”
When the Cambria Suites – Appleton was originally bid, it was an untested prototype that came in more than $600,000 over the developer’s budget. While similar projects stalled in other areas of the country, Consolidated Construction led the charge to re-evaluate the design and value engineer savings that made the project feasible.
“In hotel construction, time is crucial. Rooms must be available on schedule to meet prior reservation demands. Swift Hospitality has built many hotels and CCC was the first contractor that met the budget and finished construction on time. CCC exceeded my expectations and will be my contractor of choice for future projects”.
Airgas North Central has contracted CCC to design/build over 20 retail and operations locations throughout the Midwest. Their first “green” facility is located in Elk Grove Village Illinois.
“Airgas faces unique challenges in our building needs. We strive for both safety and customer convenience, however, that’s a delicate balance to strike when your chief products are industrial gases. With Consolidated, every step in the process is taken very personally. They’ve navigated us through complicated planning and permitting procedures in multiple municipalities. They’ve championed cost savings and sustainable options. They even found solutions to keep our employees and customers safe among industrial flammables and oxidizers. It’s not easy to impress a fire chief, but Consolidated’s design in Elk Grove Village surpassed code requirements and did just that.”
