General Contractor Industrial Buildings / Projects are on the Rise
Per Katie Clark Sieben, MN DEED Commissioner, in a recent article in the Minneapolis StarTribune, “Shovels are turning for Twin Cities Industrial Projects,” “We are seeing hundreds of business expansions happening in the metro and in the greater Minnesota.” Ms. Sieben attended five in one week alone, and recently attended the Menasha Expansion project by APPRO.
The team at APPRO Development has broken ground on multiple industrial expansion and addition projects throughout Minnesota in past year, further attesting to the growth that has been measured and reported by NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association, stating, “Nationally, the commercial real estate market grew at the strongest pace in the past year since the economic recovery began in 2011…and the overall outlook for the industry through 2015 is expected to grow between 8 and 15 percent.”

Manufacturing Construction Updates: A Current Perspective on U.S. Manufacturing & Industrial Facilities
“Manufacturing is coming back to the U.S., both in terms of jobs and demand for industrial facilities,” according to Robert Carr, in his recent article, “Manufacturing Sector Benefits from Hi-Tech Efficiency” in the National Real Estate Investor (NREI). This is an insightful article for both the manufacturing industry and for our organizations – APPRO Development, Inc. and CERRON Commercial Properties, LLC, as a commercial building services providers to the manufacturing industry. Some of Carr’s key points are:
- We will see a larger number of manufacturing facilities in the years ahead
- Larger, aged manufacturing facilities have [and will continue to] become functionally obsolete
- [Many of] the new properties will…consist of expansions by current companies
- The U.S. remains a manufacturing powerhouse today and that the trends we are seeing take shape in the market decidedly favor manufacturing
- The manufacturing sector is actually above pre-recession volume (in terms of dollar value before and after the recession for the value of construction)
We are working with many business owners – in manufacturing, and other industries – who account for this improvement. Whether the need is to build a new facility, to add on to an existing site, or simply remodel, we help walk our clients through all their options. They have the information they need to then make the decisions to bring continued success to their organization. If you have considered a change in your building (manufacturing, industrial or other commercial building type), and want more information on current commercial construction trends, please give our team a call. We can help walk you through the process. Our process starts with a simple phone call or email, and we can guide you from there. No pressure, no stress – we are here to help!
