SCS Construction - A Year in Review

2018 was a busy year for SCS Construction.  The company has five multifamily projects under construction at year end. The Construction Management Team is proud of the hard work and dedication of the field leadership and staff and the project management team.

The construction division works closely with SCS Property Management who handles the lease up and management of the completed buildings. This cooperative relationship is instrumental in the company’s success.

The company was proud to open the first two buildings at SCS Sturgeon Bay; this site is the company’s first location in eastern Wisconsin. SCS Sturgeon Bay features new interior and exterior selections which have been well received. The company is also excited for the progress on Moon Lake Estates in Rice Lake with over half of the Phase II apartments opening in 2018.

A milestone was achieved at the company’s premier site, Westwood Estates in Wausau with the first tenants moving in and multiple buildings now open.  A second location in Wausau, Urban West, is a new building that the company designed with underground parking, community and fitness rooms and upscale, modern finishes. This three story building met key milestones throughout 2018.

The company broke ground on SCS Marshfield in the fall. Site work is underway at this large multifamily project. SCS Construction’s busy pace will continue in 2019. Village Estates in Kronenwetter has been approved and several other projects are in various stages of development and approval. The architectural design team has diligently been designing new buildings to add to the company’s portfolio.

Congratulations to SCS Construction on a successful 2018!

November Star Spotlight

The November Star Spotlight is Don Braun. Don is a Leasing Manager/Maintenance Technician at SCS Sturgeon Bay. He is also assisting with construction of the site. Don was nominated by his peers for going above and beyond his duties. Here are some of the comments about Don.

Don started here a short time ago as the site manager of Sturgeon Bay. He has offered to help out in construction until his leasing and maintenance role become full time. In just a few short weeks, Don has jumped in and helped out with anything he has been asked to do, from sweeping, picking up garbage to puttying door jambs and cleaning behind appliances before install. Don has been a huge help here in Sturgeon Bay.

Don is always willing to help out and goes above and beyond expectations. He offered to tour someone from the Oshkosh planning department on a weekend. Not only did Don accommodate the tour, he took the time to explain all of the features of our buildings and was able to overcome some of the person’s objections to our plans. Don also went a step further and provided market information on Oshkosh multifamily projects that was very helpful to me. Don also did a lot of legwork for the grand opening event at his site by extending invitations and arranging for the food.

Don has been amazing as our new site manager of Sturgeon Bay. We held a grand opening a few months ago and made the process so much easier. You can truly tell he really enjoys his job and has great pride in his site. When asked he is always willing to help out and make the most of his efforts to get the units filled or to get the word out about our property.
