CITY OF PEWAUKEE — A groundbreaking for Paul Davis Restoration’s new office and warehouse in the Northmound industrial area will be held July 17.

The company will build a 100,000-square-foot, two-story headquarters on Northmound Drive overlooking Interstate 94 on 10 acres.

The locally owned and operated franchise office is expected to complete construction on the new building in 2020.

Paul Davis of Southeast and Fox Valley, Wisconsin specializes in restoration, repairs and reconstruction, sales and service, design and remodeling, and large loss and catastrophe work.

About 100 employees and 70 vehicles will be housed at the Paul Davis office in City of Pewaukee. There are plans for expansion and hiring professional tradespeople, skilled technicians, administrative support, and sales and marketing specialists, among others.

“There is a desire to be on the corridor west of Milwaukee, as we see a more convenient location for reaching potential clients and projects,” said Brady Chuckel, president of the Paul Davis office, in a statement.

In 1990, Paul Davis was established on Milwaukee’s north side and moved to the city’s south side converting a lumber yard and Aelco Foundry into a riverfront campus as the current headquarters at 2000 S. Fourth Street. During this time, siblings, commercial developers, and restoration professionals Dan Druml and Meg Boyle owned and operated the business.

In 2013, ownership was established by longtime Paul Davis employees Brady Chuckel, Jeff Hertel and Tim Guilette.

“We are pleased to start on the ambitious new building project in Pewaukee to provide an environment that encourages growth of the company and its employees. Technologically advanced equipment and workplace designs along with abundant space will positively position the business as it continues a successful advancement,” said Chuckel.

Plans at the new headquarters include education and classroom space, a specialized and updated remodeling department plus showrooms. Functions that are currently in multiple buildings will be housed in one facility to create greater efficiencies, improve collaboration, and offer areas for future growth. Enhanced technology will be placed throughout the facility for training, collaboration, and operations. Also, large group education space for employees, industry associations and client groups, will feature adjoining entertainment space in both interior and exterior areas to offer breakout opportunities during sessions.
