When they're viable, commercial remodeling projects have some great benefits. Typically, they require less time investment and can accommodate tighter deadlines than a new build. Remodeling can be less expensive than starting from scratch, and it can allow you to remain in your current location by using the space you already have more efficiently. Below, I've outlined a few of the commercial remodeling projects we've completed over the years.

It's never lost on me that there's a community-building aspect to what we do here at Winkelman Building Corp. And I mean that beyond the fact that we create buildings,
When we took on the Fulton Brewery construction project, it was new and exciting for us and them. While we've been building in and around central Minnesota for decades, this was our first brewery. The project gave us a chance to flex our Design/Build muscles and put our skills to the test.
With the recent boom in Minnesota's brewery business, breweries are bigger, better and more “in” than ever before. These buildings encompass micro-breweries, taprooms, restaurants, meeting places and tour destinations, and no single brewery is the same. Here's the story of our first brewery project - it's definitely not our last.
Your company is growing, and that’s a great thing. Revenues are up, your client base is expanding, and you are hiring new employees to meet rising demand. And as your business grows, you are experiening growing pains with your current facilities. The time has come to expand your office or building to accommodate the growth of your company and better situate the business to handle future growth.
It is important that you stop and take a moment to answer a few financial questions before making an addition to your current space. Before you begin this exciting project, take some time to consider a few finance tips before construction.
The relationship between a business and its local community is more than proximity. It's a partnership. Both sides have to opportunity to benefit from one another, which makes it important to foster and nurture that relationship. At Winkelman Building Corp., we believe a positive relationship with the local community is well worth the effort.
Just about every quality construction project requires a reliable general contractor. You may have a vision for your remodeling or expansion project, but it takes a great general contractor to help bring that vision to life. Construction experts in this field help get projects off the ground. A general contractor helps you negotiate with the trade contractors, such as plumbers, electricians, and cement layers, to get you the best possible prices and the best possible products.
In the world of business, time changes everything. Over time your business will experience staff turnover, product/service changes, and the adoption of new technologies that change the way you do business. What about the facilities you use every day? The buildings, office complexes, warehouses, and manufacturing facilities that house your business are going to change over time as well. What's different, though, is how you respond to those changes.
Taking on that commercial construction project can be a stressful and daunting task. That being said, don't jump into uncharted waters without making sure that you are using cost-effective construction techniques designed to limit your risk and exposure while maximizing your potential rewards.
If your business is growing beyond the needs of your current facility you may find that the time has come for a new building to accommodate growth. How much thought have you given to choosing a building site or location? The building that houses your company and its location in your region are just as important as the product or service that makes your company so successful in the first place.
When it’s time to relocate or open a second location, choosing a building site should not be taken lightly. There are a lot of factors to consider in the selection of a construction site. Take the time to ensure your company is familiar with these factors so that an informed decision is made, setting your business up for further success in the future.
