Western Building Products is one of the original molding  and home building products companies in our area. Founded in 1946, they produce world-class quality millwork products, with outstanding customer service to the residential and commercial construction and remodeling markets.

As their growth continued across the Midwest, they realized the need for a central headquarters, manufacturing, and warehousing presence. Our team helped find and secure land, designed and built their new 324,181 SF facility in Milwaukee, WI.


This project had a few challenges, including:

  1. The site had difficult grade challenges that required unique positioning of the building.
  2. Our team had to work through zoning challenges with the city zoning board.
  3. We constructed the facility through a harsh Wisconsin winter.
  4. We had to coordinate with a large municipal sewer and water project that ultimately provided benefit to dozens of neighboring properties.


The end result produced a very attractive and highly efficient production facility. The building optimized Western’s production layout, and the location paired with a stunning design revitalized existing employees and is now marketed for recruitment purposes. We helped deliver value for this employee-owned company.


When we knew we needed new space, we frankly didn’t know where to start, and your team at Briohn was extremely helpful guiding us through this unchartered territory. Briohn’s team was so effective in collaborating on our current and future space needs, as well as creative in their design. Your team was extremely accessible and responsive throughout the design and construction process, and although we may considered a “small” business, we never felt the level of service was any less than superior.
