EXCITING CHANGES FOR BUKACEK CONSTRUCTION
Did you know that Bukacek Construction has been a leader in the construction industry since 1963? James Bukacek, the founder of the company, passed the baton to his son Nick who led the charge until 2005. In preparation for retirement, Nick sold the company to his employees under an ESOP (employee stock ownership plan). It was employee owned and led by Jim Cairns as CEO until recently. That change started an exciting new chapter for Bukacek Construction when third generation and first female owner Andrea Bukacek (Nick’s daughter) purchased the company in August 2019 and expressed her excitement to carry on her family’s legacy. Bukacek’s former CEO, Jim Cairns, is now President of the company. To read additional articles on the new ownership, please click on any of the links below.
EDUCATORS CREDIT UNION – MUKWONAGO BRANCH
Bukacek Construction is elated to work alongside Plunkett Raysich Architects, LLP to build Educators Credit Union’s newest facility in Mukwonago, WI. This is an exciting building for ECU because it is a new and updated design indicative of the exciting changes in the banking industry. This branch will contain Interactive Teller Machines (ITMs) which look similar to ATM machines, but differ in that they allow customers to have a face-to-face interaction with a teller via an interactive screen. This allows for extended banking hours. The building site is in a prime location in Mukwonago and ECU looks forward to being the very first credit union to serve the Mukwonago community.
KNAPP MANUFACTURING INNOVATION & TECHNOLOGY CENTER
Please peruse the attached article showcasing another successful project that Bukacek Construction is proud to have played a vital role in. Knapp Mfg, Inc. recently completed its Innovation & Technology Center (ITC). This addition is the 13th addition to Knapp’s original building and signifies the strength and growth of this local company. Bukacek Construction provided all of the masonry services for the addition. We would like to congratulate Knapp Mfg on its new space!
TINY HOMES PROJECT
For those of you who noticed our earlier post about the tiny homes project we were donating our time to, here is a follow up:
Local veterans, including residents from the Veterans Outreach of Wisconsin joined the Operation Tiny Home team and Milwaukee Tool North America for a 2 day building workshop during Summerfest in Milwaukee, WI. The immersive, hands-on training took participants through house wrap installation, siding, trim, and installing windows and doors.
This tiny home will hit the road and be completed at The Tiny House and Simple Living Jamboree where it will then be donated to a Vet in need at the Mobile Loaves & Fishes Community Center in Austin, TX.
The veterans who completed the workshop received an amazing gift from Milwaukee Tool to empower them to put their newly acquired carpentry and construction skills to practice!
TOP FLIGHT INDUSTRIAL PARK – PHOENIX ONE BUILDING / AHERN RENTALS
Bukacek Construction is excited to announce that we just completed another building at the northwest corner of CTH “K” and the West Frontage Road of I-94 in the Top Flight Industrial Park. The building is approximately 13,000 square feet in size and features a high bay, clear span shop area of 9,800 square feet for services and maintenance plus 3,200 square feet of floor area for office and sales support. The space was originally a spec building, but as the project progressed, a tenant emerged and it will now be occupied by Ahern Rentals. Ahern Rentals has over 41,000 pieces of rental equipment nationwide ranging from heavy construction equipment to hand tools (for more information, please visit http://www.ahern.com/).
ANDIS CAFETERIA EXPANSION
Bukacek Construction is extremely proud to have played a part in the beautification of an important employee space. Please welcome Andis Company’s newly renovated Cafeteria!
MILWAUKEE MANUFACTURING FIRM
Bukacek would like to introduce our newest completed project. We renovated an existing 90,000 square foot building into warehouse, office and cafeteria space for a Milwaukee area manufacturing firm who had outgrown their existing space.
RACINE ST. CATHERINE’S HIGH SCHOOL GYM RENOVATION
One of the area’s premiere private education providers (Racine St. Catherine’s) is creating a new gymnasium experience for their students and faculty and Bukacek is proud to be a part of it. We are pleased to show you what the final product will look like when complete with this rendering of the new gym.
STURINO FUNERAL HOME ADDITION
We are currently completing construction of the Sturino Funeral Home Addition project. We feel this project provides a “special something” for our community because the funeral home has been serving the people of Racine since 1897! The facility maintains a feeling of home while providing compassionate services to those in need.
