WDS Construction Adds Special Services Division

(Beaver Dam) A Beaver Dam-based contractor recently announced the addition of a Special Services Division. Officials with WDS Construction – which serves 48 states and develops, manages, and constructs commercial buildings – say the new division will offer quick turn-around construction services for businesses in the state. Services include storm damage and plant maintenance, minor repairs, renovations, facility upgrades and expansion projects. WDS Construction President Ben Westra says they have built a strong client base over the last 16 years and often receive requests for additional, one-off projects. He says when combining the current supply chain delays and shortages the pandemic has created, they are seeing an increase in companies that are forced to think differently about how to address facility issues. Stan Harmsen, a 2021 Industry Icon award recipient, will lead the division. Harmsen has over four decades of experience in estimating, precast, steel work, project management, and site supervision.
