Wausau, WI, January 10, 2019 – Greenfire Management Services, which is owned by the Potawatomi Business Development Corporation, celebrated the grand opening of its northern office in Wausau, Wisconsin today with members of the local business community including ambassadors from the Wausau Chamber of Commerce. Greenfire’s new 3,000 sq. ft. office is located at 301 N. 17th Avenue and houses the team’s project management, business development and administrative staff supporting projects in the northern sector of the state. The company expects additional growth as it acquires new contracts in the region.
Greenfire, headquartered in Milwaukee, is one of the fastest growing construction management firms in the region and established its northern operations a year ago to gain a foothold beyond the southeastern region of the state, and to support developments by the Forest County Potawatomi in Crandon, Wisconsin. During its first year, the northern office secured and completed work on the Demmer Memorial Library in Three Lakes, Wisconsin.
“Establishing a presence in northern Wisconsin completes one of the company’s key expansion goals and addresses a need for quality construction solutions in this market,” said Mike Murphy, Greenfire’s Director of Northern Operations. “We are excited about the work we are already doing here and look forward to expanding our portfolio of projects. We are also happy to have a physical presence in Wausau as it will allow us to become even more actively engaged in the community.”
Since it was formed in 2010, Greenfire has grown into a leading construction management firm in Wisconsin. The company’s portfolio includes major construction projects for some of the Midwest’s most successful property developers, as well as the Forest County Potawatomi Tribe. Greenfire was recently recognized as a Minority Contractor of the Year and Fastest Growing Firm. Greenfire is a state certified, Native American-owned company.
Greenfire excels in multi-family residential, historic renovation, adaptive reuse, tenant improvements, industrial, commercial office, healthcare, education and hospitality developments. The northern office expects to focus on education, healthcare and commercial projects but the company’s full capabilities will be available in the region.
