You Need a Contractor that Understands Industrial Construction
GCI has decades of experience working on industrial construction projects. Whether your project involves a new build, facility renovations, equipment installations, conveyors, shredders, or a pre-engineered building, we spend the time needed to learn about the goals of your project and your business. The insight we gain during this programming and design phase means your building will meet your exact needs with a positive impact on your operations.
Since our beginnings in 1898, we have evolved to become a one-stop-shop for multiple construction services. This range of expertise and knowledge allows us to help walk you through the complexity of an industrial construction project. Over the years we have learned how to work with many of the facets of building for manufacturers, such as equipment bases and installation, piping, conveyor installation, ball mills, cyclone, filter press, dust collection, throughput, flotation, tailings, thickener, and instrumentation.
From the very beginning of a project, we can help you select the best project delivery system, choose an engineering firm, work with the team through the design phase, bid the project out, and ultimately build it. If you need assistance with financing, we can assemble budgets of varying detail levels to meet banking requirements to obtain loans for your project.
Experienced in Building Successful Industrial Projects
We've worked on hundreds of projects ranging in size, scope, and complexity in every major market throughout the Upper Peninsula, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. With employees living in nearly every county in the Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, it is our preference to hire field craft from the locale of the project whenever possible.
We have access to skilled, local subcontractors that know the area and are nearby should there be any issues. Through our longstanding experience in the Northern Great Lakes region, we have established relationships with many trusted subcontractors and suppliers to get a quality job done safely, on time, and within budget.
Industrial Construction Expertise You Can Depend On
Building in the Great Lakes region can present unique challenges. GCI understands what it takes to complete our construction projects given the extreme weather conditions we experience, safely and on time. We have the flexibility to meet tight schedules. To accommodate your timeline or adverse weather, we will work overtime, multiple shifts, fast track schedules, or around existing operations.
There are few things more frustrating to an owner than cost overruns on a project and we use all of our skills to assure they do not occur. During the bid process, we perform a “scrubbing” of design documents to avoid costly mistakes. We employ value engineering techniques to assure the proper material is used. If a change order is needed during the various phases of the project, we will work with the project designers and owners to identify solutions that minimize cost.
