Craftsmanship Award 

Honeycrisp Ventures

Wolverine Building Group – Grand Rapids, Michigan

Wolverine Building Group completed this design/build construction of a 285,000 sq. ft. commercial building that is divided into suites for multiple tenants. Wolverine self-performed the steel erection, roofing, and installation of insulated metal panels. Honeycrisp Ventures houses manufacturing and office space for three tenants. The construction of Honeycrisp took place in 2021, when materials and labor were scarce. However, the strategic planning and coordination completed by the builder’s project team allowed this job to proceed smoothly. Wolverine refined the schedule early and asked for labor and material commitments in advance. At a time when many construction projects were falling behind, Honeycrisp was completed on budget, months ahead of schedule.

The building’s total square footage is 285,000 square feet.

  • Roof: Double-Lok in Galvalume Plus
