Each year, we dust off the trophy case and make room for more Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) of Wisconsin Projects of Distinction Awards, and this year was no different. The Friede Team earned six awards for local projects and, for the seventh straight year, we were awarded the ABC-Wisconsin Built On Merit Award.

Projects from contractors throughout the state were judged in a rigorous process by a panel of construction experts based on a number of criteria, including safety, quality, owner satisfaction, execution and coordination, budgeting, difficulty, unusual challenges and overall distinctiveness.

Sanimax took the opportunity to install larger storage tanks, as well as a better floor drainage system following a devastating fire that nearly shut down their operations.

As any business owner knows, the enemies of structures are many: fire, water, wind, pests and age. But, one of the worst is fire.

Our client, Sanimax, discovered that on September 11, 2014. That’s when employees of the Deforest, Wisconsin company returned to the plant to find firefighters still on-site. It had been a long night and fire crews from several municipalities were still tending to a major electrical fire that tore through the building that housed the majority of the company’s grease recycling operations.

Casa de Oakes is a new 40-unit, 33,000-square-foot assisted living and memory care community located in Reedsburg, Wisconsin.

One of the most exciting projects Friede & Associates has helped bring to fruition recently is the Casa de Oakes assisted living and memory care community in Reedsburg, Wisconsin. This 40-unit, 33,000-square-foot senior housing complex with new corporate offices, could not have been completed without a great deal of teamwork. Between the Casa de Oakes team, the City of Reedsburg’s development corporation, and the Friede team, we worked to identify the perfect site as well as available tax incentives and financing for this much-needed senior and memory care facility.

The indoor go-kart track at Wilderness Hotel & Golf Resort in The Wisconsin Dells. Construction of this unique attraction was like building a ship in a bottle.

I remember the moment vividly.  We had just completed a nine-month-long project at Wilderness Hotel & Golf Resort in The Dells that included the construction of a new, indoor go-kart track, a swim-up bar and a boardwalk-themed food venue within one of their waterparks. The project had involved working through one of the coldest winters on record, and involved constructing a building in an area that had previously been an outdoor pool area and deck that was surrounded by two wings of the existing resort.

In addition, Friede & Associates was tasked with recreating a corridor to connect the wings of the hotel through the new structure, as we had removed an elevated walkway while creating a larger building envelope. Because the new swim-up bar was situated within the center courtyard of the hotel, the only access for equipment and material would be through the area where we were constructing the new go-kart attraction. In many ways, that part of the project was like building a ship in a bottle.
