You need a contractor that understands Industrial Construction

Gundlach Champion understands the complexities and high level of detail industrial construction present an owner and project team. Regardless of the size or difficulty of a project, GCI is prepared to show you why we have been building relationships since 1898. Whether your project involves a new build, facility renovations, equipment installations, conveyors, shredders, or a pre-engineered building, we take the time needed to understand the goals of your project and your manufacturing facilities. The time spent in the programming and design phase means your building will meet your exact needs with a positive impact on your operations.We are a one-stop-shop for multiple construction services for manufacturers. 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 start, we can help you select the best construction delivery system and engineering firm, then work with the team through the design phase, gather bids, and finally construct it. If you need financing assistance, we can develop budgets of varying detail levels to meet banking requirements to obtain loans.

Experienced in building successful industrial projects

Gundlach Champion has built many manufacturing projects ranging in size, scope, and complexity throughout the Upper Peninsula, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.  With employees living in nearly every county in 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.Building in the Great Lakes region presents unique challenges. We understand what it takes to complete our construction projects during extreme weather conditions, safely and on time. Our flexibility allows us to adhere to tight schedules. We will work overtime, multiple shifts, fast track schedules, or around existing operations to accommodate your timeline or adverse weather. We understand that cost overruns cause frustrations for the owner and we use all of our expertise to avoid them. During the bid process, we “scrub” design documents to catch costly mistakes. We employ value engineering to assure the proper material is used. If a change order is needed during the project, we will work with the project team to identify options that are the least costly.
