Big-D Midwest, a regional office of Big-D Companies, one of the largest groups of contractors in the United States, is celebrating a decade of operations and community building in the Midwest market.
In its 10th year of operation, Big-D Midwest has a long list of achievements including surpassing the $1 billion mark in work projects won, as well as the completion of more than 5,000 apartment units in the market it serves.
“At the end of the day the goal is to provide a place for people to work, grow their careers and do what they love while providing a high-quality product,” said Cory Schubert, Big-D Midwest’s Sr. Vice President and Managing Director. “Ten years is a nice round number we’ve hit. We’ve become a big player in this market now. I’m excited to see what the next decade has in store.”
Part of the Big-D Family of Companies, the Big-D Midwest office opened in the Summer of 2013. Local construction industry veterans Schubert, Chris Grzybowski and Tom Driscoll had approached the leaders at Big-D Construction’s headquarters in Salt Lake City with a vision. Their idea was simple and research-based: to bring the Big-D brand to Minnesota, a prime market for general contracting work.
Carving out a focus on community and multi-family structures, some of Big-D Midwest’s portfolio includes The Gatsby in Downtown Minneapolis, The Reserve at Sono, Aster House Apartments, and The Rowan, several of which were financed by U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development funds.
Among many partners in the market, Big-D Midwest is especially proud of its relationship with the renowned developer, At Home Apartments. So far, the two firms have collaborated on nine different projects, with more expected to come in the foreseeable future.
“For the last seven years, Big-D Midwest has been our building partner. Our incredible partnership, which also includes Collage Architects, has delivered some of the most unique and desirable apartment communities throughout the Twin Cities,” At Home’s senior leadership, which includes Mike Cashill, Alan Spaudling, Leanna Stefaniak, and Tami Wegwerth, said in a joint statement. “We are proud to call Big-D our partner, and our friend. Congratulations to Big-D Midwest on this significant milestone!”
With the bulk of Big-D Midwest’s portfolio in Minnesota, the firm is looking forward to extending its footprint into neighboring states in years to come.
“We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the founding partners for their unwavering passion and visionary leadership that brought this office to life,” said Big-D Companies Chief Operating Officer Troy Thompson. “Here’s to an exciting future that holds endless possibilities.” For more information, visit midwest.big-d.com.
