Lakeland Community Church

Catalyst Construction is currently in progress on a 30,000 square foot addition which will include a new worship, gathering, and office space. The project will also include expanded parking and renovations to the existing building. At the time that Catalyst was brought onto the project, Lakeland Community Church was (and still is) rapidly growing ministry that had purchased a building and done some renovation and addition work with another contractor that unfortunately didn’t work out well.

Welford Sanders Lofts

Catalyst Construction converted the 184,843 square-foot former Nunn Bush Shoe Co. factory into a mix of offices and apartments. A partnership comprising Wisconsin Development and the non-profit Martin Luther King Economic Development Corporation redeveloped the property by converting the existing building into 59 apartments and 38,000 square-feet of office space. As part of the conversion, a two-story, 1960s-era addition was demolished to form an interior courtyard space inside the historic U-shaped complex.

The Sherman Phoenix

In 2016, violent unrest broke out in the Sherman Park neighborhood of Milwaukee after a fatal police shooting rocked the community. In the weeks following, community conversations identified the need for safe, welcoming neighborhood spaces, and certain leaders in the community decided to take matters into their own hands in order to foster change.

St. Peter Catholic Church

St. Peter Catholic Church in Slinger has been blessed with a faithful and generous membership throughout the ministry’s 150-year history. Catalyst Construction was selected through a qualification and interview process as the church’s construction management firm. The multi-phase project called for major renovations to the existing space including expansion of the sanctuary to accommodate additional seating for worship. In order to maintain the aesthetic of the original structure built in 1892, Catalyst procured cream city brick from a local supplier which was used for all of the project’s masonry. The full scope of the large-scale renovation also included a [...]
