What is Gardner Builders?

Gardner Builders is a hospitality company in the commercial construction business.  We’re a general contractor focused on delivering projects – both simple and complex – in a way that gives you complete confidence and has you rest assured that you are in excellent hands.

We help our clients be the best at who they want to be.  A space is designed to meet several factors – business need, efficiency, and aesthetic while also reflecting personality.  We work closely with our clients, the designers, and our trade partners to deliver quality spaces. Our end purpose is to provide each one of our clients with an outstanding experience during the construction process.

Why work with Gardner Builders?

Our end purpose is to provide our clients with an outstanding experience during the construction process.  This means not just preventing a negative experience, but creating an enjoyable one.

Gardner Builders is setting new standards for an industry that’s been around since the beginning of time.  Our innovative approach includes:

Hospitality

Hospitality – it isn’t just about what we do; it’s about how we make you feel. We want our clients to feel respected, heard and understood, included in the process, informed, taken care of, highly satisfied, and really excited about their new space. Gardner Builders is more than just a construction company – it’s a company among great companies to do business with.

Transparency

Transparency with clients – our clients’ needs and desires are foremost in our work. Every project is customized to maintain open communication with the client. We welcome our clients to actively participate in the building process: visit job sites, ask questions, voice concerns. We view listening and problem solving as critical job responsibilities. Our onsite field staff provide daily activity reports to the client, architect, and building manager with project updates and photos.

Partnerships

Positive partnerships with the design and trade partner communities – we don’t beat up our partners to deliver on promises made to the client. We know that embracing mutually-beneficial relationships with designers and trade partners results in credibility and trust with our stakeholders, longevity in the market, and most importantly, successful projects for our clients.

Execution

Flawless execution – high standards are the standard at Gardner Builders. In fact, if we don’t exceed client expectations, then we haven’t met our goal. Our goal is to exceed expectations every time. Our use of technology with field staff, development of building playbooks, and project schedules are designed to result in zero impact during the construction process and a zero punch list upon project completion.

WE LIVE, WORK AND PLAY
IN THE TWINS CITIES AND DULUTH

Where is Gardner Builders?

What do the Jucy Lucy, rollerblades, and the hockey haircut have in common?

Minnesota bragging rights.

We may be Minnesota nice, but loving our beautiful state is one thing we’re not shy about.

The stats speak for themselves.  Our capitol, St. Paul contains over 100 landmarks – including the Cathedral of St. Paul and the James J. Hill Library.  Minneapolis is home to The Walker Art Center, a brand new stadium for the Vikings, and the Minnesota Twins and has more theater seats than any other U.S. city but New York.  Travel and Leisure ranks the Twin Cities tops in the nation for our summers, public parks, cleanliness and intelligence. Duluth sits on the shores of the largest fresh water lake in the world, and is noted to be one of the ‘happiest cities in the U.S’ according to USA Today and the U.S. National Bureau of Economic Research.

We believe it. Some seriously creative and inventive minds have called these cities home – think 19 Fortune 500 companies, the National Marrow Donor Program, Prince, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and our friends at Rhymesayers, just to namedrop a few.

Headquartered in the heart of downtown Minneapolis with a new office in Duluth, we’re strategically placed to rub elbows with tons of brilliant people. We have a unique rapport with our cities, bringing a sense of relationship and camaraderie to every project.

And we have a blast doing it.
