Commercial Experience

You Need a contractor that understands Commercial Construction Services

Gundlach Champion, Inc. (GCI) has decades of experience working on commercial construction projects. Our experience includes theaters, banks, hotels, breweries, retail spaces, and everything in between. Whether your project involves a new building or the renovation of an existing space, we can do it all. 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 project will be tailored to meet the exact needs of your business operation, positively impacting your overall operation.

Since our establishment in 1898, GCI has evolved to become a one-stop shop, providing a variety of construction services. Our range of expertise and knowledge allows us to help walk you through the complexity of a commercial construction project.

From the very beginning of a project, we can help you select the best construction 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 the banking requirements to obtain loans for your project.

Experienced in building successful commercial projects

We’ve worked on hundreds of construction projects ranging in size, scope, and complexity in every major market throughout Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. Through our wide range of 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. We are pleased to work with skilled local subcontractors who are familiar with the area, and who will be available at a moment’s notice should the need arise. It is our preference to hire field craft from the locale of the project whenever possible.

As a construction company building in the Great Lakes region we are well aware of its unique seasonal challenges. Given the extreme weather conditions we experience, GCI understands what it takes to complete our construction projects safely and on time. We have the flexibility in our construction services to meet tight schedules. To accommodate your schedule 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 escalating budgets or change orders; we use all of our expertise to ensure that these do not occur. During the bid process, we perform a “scrubbing” of design documents to avoid costly mistakes. We employ value engineering techniques to ensure that proper materials are used. If a change order is needed during any phase of the project, we will work with the project designers and owners to identify solutions that minimize cost.Gundlach Champion’s suite of services combines all of the components our clients need to take a project from start to finish. New and returning clients have the convenience of being able to plan their projects with us to make sure their proposed building will meet their needs and budget. We’ll discuss the financial sourcing of your project and analyze the impact (if any) your budget may have on your facility and on taxpayers. You’ll be intimately involved in the design of the project as you watch your new facility take shape. Finally, we’ll manage and construct the project, completing the entire process of your new building.
