Project and partnership celebrated with a ribbon cutting Tuesday, August 17

National Construction recently completed a more than 20,000 square-foot addition to the Verona, Wisconsin, corporate headquarters of Cleary Building Corp., in cooperation with the customized pre-engineered structures builder. The project was the second National completed for the organization, having also constructed an addition in 2005.

“National Construction truly appreciates our long-standing relationship with Cleary,” said Jeff Grundahl, co-owner of National and its parent company JG Development. “It’s notable to construct multiple projects for a client within our own industry, and the collaboration and cooperative self-performance by both of our teams was outstanding. We’re honored to support Cleary’s continued growth.”

The project encompassed two additions tied seamlessly into to the existing headquarters.  A 6,480 square foot, three story addition and a 13,231 square foot, two story addition 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 showcase Cleary’s building system. Construction was completed safely amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and phased employee access minimized disruption.

“The expansion represents a commitment by Cleary to the Verona community and to the continued future growth of the company,” said Cleary Building Corp. President Sean Cleary.

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 900 throughout the United States at 81 branch offices.
