Construction management firm CSM Group, headquartered in Kalamazoo, Mich., will open an Omaha office later this month.
The company’s new office will be stationed in the Mastercraft building in north downtown, which will serve as a home base for the company’s few employees who already work in the Omaha area as well as a “home away from home” for employees traveling to Omaha.
CSM serves two large food companies in the Omaha area, as well as nationally, and will focus on projects in the food and beverage and health care industries in Omaha. The company declined to name the clients, citing confidentiality agreements.
The company also provides construction management services in the commercial, industrial and education markets.
“We are very excited to open a satellite office in the Omaha area,” CSM President Todd McDonald said in a statement. “As we have had staff presence in the area for almost four years, this feels like a natural fit. Opening this office is in alignment with our strategic plan to support our national clients where they are and where they need our support.”
Josh Rohs, a group vice president who has been with the company since 2000, will lead the day-to-day operations in the Omaha office. “We hope to bring a new approach to the construction industry. ... We look forward to developing our current relationships, as well as establishing many more,” Rohs said in a statement.
Business development and marketing coordinator Katrina Reed said it hasn’t been determined yet if the company will hire more employees to work out of its Omaha office. “It all has to do with our current workload,” Reed said.
The Mastercraft, home to several startups and creative companies, was a good fit for CSM, Reed said. “It’s a really unique space and it seemed to fit our needs. It seemed to kind of fit our personality, too.”
