"Paramount Financial Strategies engaged Venture’s team led by Dave Dahlke to build out our new Oconomowoc, WI flagship office. Venture did an excellent job of design, build out and interior design work. Each member of their team was responsive, professional and we felt ‘took ownership’ of their responsibility.
We are doing a renovation of our Janesville offices and have tapped Venture to help with that effort. There is no stronger verification of satisfaction then a repeat customer."

“Working with Venture Construction and all the sub-contractors was the BEST experience I have ever had when having a major construction project completed. Every part of the project was completed in a timely fashion. The schedule for completion of each step of the project was followed nearly to perfection. The area of construction was left in a neat and tidy condition each day. There was no interruption in our operations. Venture worked with us to overcome the various project challenges and completed the job on time and within budget.
Every concern I had during the construction was addressed in a timely and efficient manner. Venture Construction gets a ‘10’ in every aspect of delivery of the project!"
Doug Neumann, Operations Manager
"It has been almost a year since your firm has completed our new apartment construction project, and I could not be more pleased! From the very start of the project to the completion, I was genuinely impressed with what an excellent overall experience it was.
The team assigned to the project was vastly experienced and extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way, which I greatly appreciated, and they effectively worked through any issues quickly and thoroughly. Follow up during the warranty period after construction was completed, was also outstanding. I am exceedingly pleased with the quality and value of the entire project! I am working on some new project developments in the near future, and will most definitely use your firm again. Thank you Venture Team! "

"We were introduced to Dan and Dave at Venture at the early start of our process. They designed a complex warehouse addition, managed the entire project and all subs, then helped work out the minor issues in a timely manner after completion. The project was smooth and within budget. I highly recommend Venture for big projects."

Amato Automotive Group has a long history working with Venture Construction Group. We were very happy to continue our relationship on our newest dealership, Amato Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. I compliment Venture Construction Group on all aspects of the project, and in particular, their commitment to quality and their effort throughout the project. Our project manager, Jay Hill and our superintendent, Jason Radway were on top of every detail. Venture’s pride in a job well done is shown in the quality of their work and we look forward to continuing our relationship.
“I just wanted to write a quick letter to say thank you for the wonderful job you did at Mayfair Pediatrics. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Venture. Your team was so engaged with ours from the start making the planning process go so well. Working on an expansion and remodel of a very busy primary care office and urgent care with later hours was quite daunting…and even with the tight after hours parameters you guys pulled this off. I don’t think I received a single complaint about noise, cleanup, etc. Everyone knew what to expect on any given day thanks to your extremely efficient communication throughout every phase of this complicated project. We were thoroughly impressed with Venture’s attention to detail and ability to stay on schedule. Even when we were faced with unknowns and challenges you were quick to identify solutions and resolve. Children’s prides itself on having the highest of standards throughout all of our organizational operations and we look forward to using your team again.”

“Working with Dan Eckerman and his team at Venture Construction Group made the stress of our renovation project very turnkey. Venture helped us to stay on our timeline and finish the project as promptly as possible. Our project manager, Dave Dahlke was thorough and patient while working through many tricky situations keeping us open during the entire project. From start to finish of the project, I really appreciated their honesty and professionalism and would highly recommend their entire project team.”

They have had a part in most all of our 35 restaurants in the form of major and minor construction projects.

“Our new facility is world class and has helped us improve our productivity and reach out to new customers. Venture’s team, despite some very difficult weather problems due to a mid-January start, did a fantastic job of working to keep our scheduled date on time. The quality of the workmanship and communication from the on-site leader Mark and project manager Jay was excellent. Should our company continue our fast track growth, we will be expanding again and Venture will most certainly be our partner.”

Water Street), as well as the buildout of a 5,700 SF tenant space on the same floor. Venture was responsive, listened to our needs, and repeatedly went the extra mile.

“I have had the good fortune to work with Venture Construction Group many times over the past 18 years. Again and again they have helped us find ways to make things happen for our clients. Unlike many other general contractors whose change orders wreck havoc on projects and relationships, Dan Eckerman and his team are refreshingly open, honest and upfront about project costs and risks. This allows us to plan appropriately and have great confidence in the result. I trust them implicitly and recommend them highly.”
Dan Walsh, Executive Vice President
“From the initial conception of turning an old retail store (Schuster’s/Gimbels) into a Class A office space, Venture was with us through the entire design, construction and occupancy process. Venture’s input was instrumental in the final design, adherence to our constructions budget and presenting us with a quality, highly functional facility. Dan Eckerman has an honest, get down to work ethic and has surrounded himself with a competent staff upholding these same values. Since our initial office construction, we have done numerous projects with Venture and consider them our ‘Go To’ contractor. They are a hands-on, competent, professional organization that delivers on their promises and stands behind their work 100%.”

“From initial contact through the bidding, construction/project management and final billing our experience was seamless and uneventful. During the renovation process we never met any challenges that could not be resolved because of the team created by Venture. All the subs were on board, helpful, professional, and timely. Just a great experience from start to finish. Please feel free to have any potential clients call us or stop out and see the results of a team that knows their craft.”

“In the past 23 years I’ve had a number of experiences with general contractors on various sizes of projects. Venture Construction Group completed a 105,000 square foot addition at our Sussex, WI facility. The Venture team worked very close with us to minimize the effects of the construction on our daily operations. Venture kept me and the owners of the company informed through every step of the process. When an unexpected problem popped up Venture came to the table with a reasonable and cost effective solution for us to consider. Our project was completed on time despite some very challenging weather conditions. I’m very satisfied with Venture’s quality of service and continue to enjoy the partnership that has developed. I would recommend Venture Construction Group to anyone thinking about building or expanding.”

"Venture Construction Group has been an integral and trusted partner for both my architectural practice as well as my development company. I have worked with them on projects ranging from small restaurants to large medical office buildings. They have always given me great service and have kept me updated on any budget and schedule issues. Also, I never feel like I am getting change orders that are not justified or subcontractor questions that have not been reviewed for solutions before they get to me. The bottom line is that I think Venture Construction Group, from top to bottom, is one of the best in the business.”

“When I decided to open Harry's on Brady, it was a difficult decision. Having been in the restaurant business for 27 years and gone through three buildouts and five remodels, the thought of it brought many concerns. But Brady Street was a natural spot for Harry's and thought my architect I met the group Venture Construction. From the beginning Dan and his staff laid out a clear schedule and budget for the project. Piece by piece the project came along; with the vision and the execution of a master builder. We met on a weekly basis and discussed what was accomplished and what was to come. I was forced to delay the opening by two weeks, not because of construction delays, but because I was not ready to open on schedule. A Project that is on time and on budget is rare, but not to the Venture Group."
