“We’ve worked with other developers and contractors in the past, and nobody is as organized as DBS was. They kept all of the subcontractors on task and on time and communicated with us throughout. They were on our side and gave us that personal touch. I feel like it’s more of a friendship now than a business transaction. If you want a headache-free experience and fair pricing, I definitely recommend them.”

“This was my first time building anything, and I would 100% recommend/work with DBS again. They made the building process very easy and stress-free. I really enjoyed how inclusive they let me be throughout the design and construction process. My field manager, Kevin, was fantastic to work with. He kept everyone on task and was always happy to walk through and answer all my questions about the process. All in all, I could not have asked for a better company to help me build my family business to succeed for many years to come!”

The way they work as a team is especially impressive; that’s something I really appreciate about them. My customers, my staff, and I love what they do in our restaurants. I would recommend them to anyone. In fact, I already have!”

“Working with DBS Group was wonderful. Their attention to detail and timeliness were exceptional, and they were personable and professional. They were very sensitive to our needs, especially as we continued working with clients throughout our renovation. I’ve had several contracting experiences, and this was one of the best.”

“The people at DBS Group were pleasant and professional. They facilitated the project well, managing all the logistics and taking care of any issues that came up during the process. They also kept us well-informed on progress and next steps and produced high-quality work. Most importantly, we now have a beautiful facility to share with our clients, customers and community.”
—Kirsten Tangen

“Our experience with DBS Group was positive throughout the inquiry, planning, selection, build and final detailing. We were impressed by the knowledge of each specialist and how each had a smooth handoff to the next stage leader. The project was finished on time, which is almost unheard of, and it was free from the frustrations that every other build customer expects and despises. Every member of the DBS team was responsive and pleasant to work with, without exception.”
—Catherine McBride

“I had an excellent experience working with DBS Group. They understand how to structure a large build and keep it relatively low-stress and trouble-free for the owner. They were phenomenal in handling the details, so I didn’t have them dropping on me. We built our facility during COVID, and they thought out of the box to keep us moving despite materials shortages. They’re a professional organization with good people. They’re fair and make it work for everybody. It was nice to have a partner in my project rather than just a contractor.”
—Lavon (Spanky) Felton

“When we met with DBS Group, they laid out a plan that worked for us and then followed through on everything they said they would do. We had very few surprises on the project. When they did occur, DBS Group communicated them well and had a plan to solve them. As a preschool, we needed to market six months before the project was finished, and hitting our completion date was critical for the families depending on us. Even with supply chain issues and labor shortages, DBS Group got the job done on schedule.”

“The people at DBS Group really worked together as a team, not just with each other but with me as well. They’re very knowledgeable, and their customer service is excellent. They kept me organized and updated, making the entire process easier — which was especially helpful as I was still running another facility. And while they’re very professional, they also brought good humor to our interactions, making the project more enjoyable. If I were to build another facility, I would hire them — hands down.”
—Jamie Smith
Beehive Homes of Eau Claire
“DBS Group managed our project well. They shared ideas we wouldn’t have thought of and ensured everything stayed on track for a timely completion. They also identified and addressed issues before they became problems. Overall, I felt like I didn’t need to be there every day because I could trust them to think the way the owner would. I definitely recommend them for new construction projects.”
—Lindsay Spitzer
Bluff View Bank
“Everybody loves great customer service, and that’s what DBS Group gave me. They’re thorough, detailed, responsive and professional. The fact that they offer all-in-one services with the design-build helped greatly in getting everything I needed for my bank and attorney to figure out the financing. DBS Group stayed firm on their dates and delivered as promised. They also keep you informed and involved in the process as much as you want to be informed and involved. Like most business owners, I’m a pretty busy person, and they took away a lot of the work and worry involved in building my new location.”
—Dr. Chad Schultz

If we weren’t sure about something, they sat down and explained it all the way through. They were especially good at working with all the different contracts involved and keeping us up to date. I definitely recommend them.”

“Partnering with DBS group was the best decision for my business. All the professionals I interacted with there were courteous and treated my project like it was their own. Their communication was proactive, and they educated me to help make smart decisions as the project progressed. Our project manager and superintendent had an incredible say/do ratio. When they committed to outcomes and progress, they consistently delivered. I highly recommend DBS group for businesses looking to stay on-time and on-budget!”
—Mike Sokol

“What I enjoy about DBS Group is how well they prepare before the projects begin. They put a plan together and hammer it all out, so once the project gets going, it’s pretty smooth. I’ve had contractors who’ve been late, and it’s cost me money. DBS Group is always, always, always ahead of schedule. It’s a good group of people to work with. They communicate well and are very professional.”
—Mike Baird

“DBS Group made a large project for a small business very manageable. We were impressed with other similar grocery projects they had completed in the Midwest, and from the very first meeting, we were very pleased with the personal, but the professional approach they had to construction management, and we felt they would be a great fit to our second ground up grocery store project. Our job superintendent from DBS Group worked long hours to be there every step of the way, and we met regularly with the rest of the DBS team to ensure we stayed on time and on budget. We would enthusiastically recommend DBS Group for any commercial construction project and will certainly involve them on any future projects of our own!”

“Working with DBS Group has been wonderful. It’s really about the people. Their attention to detail and quality has always been top-notch. They often recognize when we overlook a project detail, suggest a solution and correct it for us. They give personal attention to every project, and they’re always very responsive. I look less at them as a general contractor and more as an extension of our team.”
—Derrick Matter

“DBS Group’s work on our addition was phenomenal, from design through construction. They sat down with us in the beginning, learned what we wanted and needed and planned it all out so we could meet our very short time frame. The project manager was there every day and was a great communicator, letting us know what was going on throughout construction. Also, a big factor for us is that we wanted the addition to look like it was part of the original building. We get a lot of comments now from customers who say it looks like it was always meant to be there. We’re very pleased with the end product.”
—Jim & Cathy Berge

They’re a highly professional group to work with, one that has transparent, fair pricing and that worked to make sure we were completely satisfied. If you choose them, you’re going to be happy with the end product.”

The relationship with the people was excellent, the price was fair, and what they promised was delivered on time and on budget. DBS Group was very professional, easy to communicate with and very responsive. If anything, they helped me stay focused. I could not have been more happy.”

“Working with DBS Group was the best experience we’ve ever had with a contractor. They were professional, honest and truly wanted what was best for us, which gave us a greater trust and comfort level with them. And the quality of the work matched the level of service. Building a new commercial building is much easier when the whole burden is not on you as the owner. DBS Group treated our project like it was their own building.”
—Kim & Kelly Kessler

“We can’t thank you enough for how much you and all the staff at DBS Group did for our company. You may have thought that doing our build-out was just another construction project, but your team went above and beyond! Not only did you do a fantastic construction build-out, but you helped with so many things that came up that without your expertise and guidance, we would have been lost. As a new business owner, we put our faith in others and hope they do a good job. We are so happy we put our faith in DBS Group. I would highly recommend you to any business owner who is looking for an expert in commercial building.”
—Todd and Mary Smith

“[For] the buildout for our La Crosse office, not only were we looking for design and quality, but we were also looking to be on budget; DBS Group didn’t disappoint. Everyone I spoke with throughout the process knew exactly where we were, and they continued to be responsive even after we moved into our updated office. Everyone genuinely cared about our project, and I had no reservations that they were handling every detail efficiently and professionally. I couldn’t appreciate them more.  Any time I have a new project, they will be my first call, no question.”

They hire and retain people of high character — not an ounce of arrogance or puffiness in any of them — and it’s great to work with people you enjoy. Also, I believe we are not their client; our customers are. We’re proud to partner with DBS Group to serve and enrich others’ lives.”
