Construction rebound

After years of little activity and high unemployment levels following the Great Recession, construction activity has picked up significantly in southeastern Wisconsin.

The most notable upcoming building project is Northwestern Mutual’s plans to build a 32-story, $450 million office tower at its downtown Milwaukee corporate headquarters complex.

Other major building projects in the region include the 18-story hotel under construction at Potawatomi Bingo Casino, the Mayfair Collection retail development in Wauwatosa, The Corners retail and apartment development planned in the Town of Brookfield, the Drexel Town Square project that will create a mixed use downtown in Oak Creek, several apartment buildings in downtown Milwaukee and in the suburbs, numerous industrial buildings including two huge distribution facilities for in Kenosha, and major road projects including the $1.7 billion Zoo Interchange reconstruction and the reconstruction of the Hoan Bridge.

As the construction industry continues to rebound and builders get busier, it will become increasingly difficult to find the right construction and design firms for new projects. To help area businesses choose the best builders and designers, BizTimes Milwaukee presents the CRE Services: Construction, Design, and Renovation Directory.

Firms that are eligible to be in this directory include: construction firms, architecture firms, engineering firms, commercial real estate firms, interior designers, restoration services and specialty contractors.

The companies listed in this directory are based in the eight-county southeastern Wisconsin region (Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, Kenosha, Walworth, Ozaukee, Washington and Sheboygan counties).

Entries submitted after the print deadline can be viewed online, or to purchase an electronic copy of the CRE Services directory please go to
