National Construction broke ground Thursday, July 16 on an office expansion to accommodate growth of Verona, Wisconsin-based Cleary Building Corp.
National Construction built a previous addition for Cleary, and will partner with the customized pre-engineered structures builder’s team on the project.
“Our team and company as a whole are proud to once again support the growth of a fellow local builder invested in our industry and community,” said Jeff Grundahl, owner of National Construction, which is based in Madison and also employee owned as one of four divisions of JG Development.
In a press release, Cleary Building Corp. President Sean Cleary said, “Cleary Building Corp. is always looking to the future, and this expansion is representative of our commitment to further investment in our employees, the community, and our clients. We are making this capital investment to become even more efficient and to provide better client service going forward.”
The project includes two additions to the existing headquarters. A 6,480 square foot, three story addition and a 13,231 square foot, two story addition will include expanded office space – both open and private – plus conference rooms, restrooms, mechanical rooms and storage. The additions are designed with a new generation of employees in mind. Interior exposed rafters and ductwork will showcase the company’s building system.
One of Cleary’s manufacturing plants is located in Verona, Wisconsin, and two others are located in Grand Island, Nebraska, and Hazelton, Idaho. The family-owned company, in business since 1978, employs more than 800 throughout the United States at 81 branch offices.
A commercial design-build firm, National Construction partners with architects, business leaders and communities to build facilities that enable success for all. The general contractor takes pride in bettering southern Wisconsin communities, with a portfolio of work focused on the businesses and services most important to a community’s residents, like childcare, healthcare and government facilities, and housing, retail and hospitality. Offices are located in Blue Mounds and downtown Madison, Wisconsin.
