Founded in 2010, Gardner Builders now has additional offices in Duluth, Minn., and Milwaukee, Wis.

The company prides itself on providing excellent service in a fast-paced, high-end projects. The Gardner team is well versed in the nuances of working in Class A facilities and knows what it takes to be successful building projects in occupied environments.

According to Gardner, what really makes the company different is the employees.
