Providing the Twin Cities with commercial construction services since 1977
44 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN MINNESOTA
45 MILLION SQUARE FEET OF PROJECTS
LOCALLY OWNED & OPERATED
Founded in the Twin Cities in 1977, Welsh Construction is locally owned and operated and delivers a full suite of commercial construction services, from ground up new construction projects to all sizes of tenant improvements, across virtually every sector of commercial construction.
Our mission is to deliver exceptional service that enhances our client’s business, bringing their vision to life, exceeding expectations and providing an unparalleled level of customer service throughout the entire building experience.
Committed to Streamlining the Construction Process
With over 44 years of experience and 45 million square feet of projects in virtually every sector of commercial construction, we provide each unique project with a full suite of comprehensive, fully-integrated and worry-free construction services, all under one roof. Welsh Construction’s skilled project managers and professional field supervisors streamline the construction process so their clients can stay focused on what matters to them most—maximizing their business.
Our design-build contracting method combines design and construction work in a single point of responsibility. By holding responsibility in one contract, we expedite the construction delivery schedule and shorten durations which, in turn, will reduce cost of supervision/general conditions and ultimately save money for our clients. This method of contracting is often preferred by clients to speed up or “fast-track” the project, so that the ROI can be capitalized more quickly.
We have been providing the traditional “design-bid-build” delivery method of general contracting since we were founded in 1977. Our experienced team manages our own crews of carpenters and laborers, as well as all special trades involved in all aspects in this delivery method. In this method of contracting, we typically provide our pricing after the project design is complete and construction starts typically upon award.
CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT AT RISK CONTRACTING
The CM at Risk delivery method brings Welsh to the table early during the design process so that we can provide costing, scheduling and constructibility reviews while the design is being developed. This method brings our construction expertise to the preplanning process and mitigates the risk of the project running over budget. As an early member of the Project Team, often we develop a guaranteed maximum price (GMP) so that long lead items can be ordered so as not to delay the project. Like the other contracting service methods above, we are the point of responsibility for the project's timely delivery.
Welsh Construction promises our clients a Certainty of Outcome - your project will be delivered on time, within the contract value and without any surprises.
Budget and schedule management are always our main priorities to ensure every project not only finishes on time, but also within budget, and is a smooth process for all involved.

OUR PROVEN PROCESS
We deliver on our word.
Our team utilizes several best practices to ensure we deliver as promised, we call this proven process “The Welsh Way,” which is based on three principles:
Our team hits the ground running and understands that more planning and discussion on the front end pays dividends at the end. Our approach is to leave no stone unturned and to attack our projects at start up.
Welsh meets as a full team, including executive-level leadership, on every project weekly. We understand that removing obstacles and being proactive requires all hands on deck in a collaborative approach.
Everybody knows how difficult it can be sometimes to score a touchdown from the 20-yard line. That is why every project develops a Finish Strong Plan that is reviewed by the whole team when the project starts nearing the 20-yard line, or 80% completion. The team reviews the tasks and potential obstacles in front of them and formulates a plan to succeed despite them.
Our team of experts at Welsh Construction offer knowledge in a variety of fields and commercial property construction types, including design build, tenant improvement, healthcare, corporate, retail, nonprofit, industrial, education and more.
"We had a unique project on a very tight budget, and Welsh delivered a quality final product. Welsh guided us through the design and building process with care and detail, always advocating for our best interest. It was great to work with a team that took the time to understand us and our needs in the space. The final product has exceeded our expectations, and came in under budget! We without a doubt will use Welsh Construction for future projects."
