Behind Open Doors: A Quick Look at Greiner Construction

Written by Catie Wheeler

At Greiner Construction, we pride ourselves in instituting an open, transparent culture. Some of our most integral core values are honesty, transparency, and trust—none of which can be properly achieved behind closed doors.

Whether you’ve been a valued partner with us for years or this is your first time looking into our company, you’ve probably got some questions. Fortunately, we also believe in saying it like it is and sharing more about Greiner Construction. So without further ado, here are answers to some of our most commonly asked questions.

Who are we?

For over 30 years, Greiner has been working to bring respect, value, and personality to the construction process, keeping a personal connection at the heart of everything we do. That’s how we form trusted partnerships and create environments where businesses thrive. It is this human-centric approach that makes us who we are.

As an employee-driven, customer-focused firm, our unique approach and proven process have allowed us to successfully deliver projects of all scopes and sizes. With more than half of our projects focused on interior build outs, we bring an exceptional eye for detail, a dedication to quality craftsmanship, and a passion for building enduring relationships that has allowed us to solidify our reputation as the “gold standard” in construction.

What makes us different from other construction companies?

At Greiner, we approach construction very differently than most general contractors. Here are a few examples of how we approach our building projects:

  • An experienced, personable team: We’ve hired the best and the brightest and given them the trust and freedom to deliver outstanding customer service every step of the way. Our team of over 80 dedicated, knowledgeable employees have leveraged their experience, passion, and brilliance to meet the needs of our clients. It is Greiner’s way to build and serve relationships for success and this is done with integrity, honesty, and compassion.
  • Our proven process: Completing new buildings and interior renovations is not our only priority—it’s the relationships we build along the way that truly matter. That’s why at Greiner, we focus on listening to your goals and asking questions that allow us to uncover new possibilities—all while bringing your ideas to life in a personalized and exciting way. This process is what makes us unique and has enabled us to deliver high-quality facilities with unparalleled customer service time and time again.
  • On schedule results: We take proactive measures to ensure that we always meet our clients’ desired project deadlines. By engaging the entire team and including input from various project partners along the way, we are able to consistently deliver results either on time or ahead of schedule. Your project schedule will not be a concern with Greiner Construction as your project partner.
  • Unmatched quality and value: At Greiner, we pride ourselves in our ability to bring competitive pricing and unmatched value to our clients. We offer industry-leading quality and craftsmanship that will transform your construction project from great to unforgettable.

Where do we call home?

For over three decades, Greiner has been proud to call Minneapolis, Minnesota its home. In that time, we’ve completed hundreds of projects and built quality, lifelong relationships with our clients and neighbors in the Twin Cities area.

We wholeheartedly believe in giving back to the community that’s been so good to us. Over the years we’ve supported a wide range of charities and donated our skills, materials, labor, and love to building and improving local neighborhoods.

We have also recently joined the Des Moines, Iowa area, and are incredibly excited to bring our talents, tools, experience, and passion to this new community—we can’t wait to dig in!
