Construction is the product, but at Carl A. Nelson & Company, the focus of business is customer relationships.

During 107 years in business, Carl A. Nelson & Company has built thousands of projects. 

In each of those, the large majority of which were for repeat clients, the product was construction, but the aim was service.

“Our focus is building relationships with our clients so we can help them in their business. It’s not just about building their building. It’s about understanding the ins and outs of their particular business,” said Dan Culp, Director of Business Development at CANCO, referring primarily to the company’s work as design-builder and construction manager, but also to general contracting projects.

“We’re looking at their processes,” Culp added. “And we’re looking at their business and trying to help them make the right decisions during the project.”
