Build and Occupy in Under 16 Months

Few decisions will have the positive long-term effects to your business’ success as a new building and its location.

Previously there were two choices:

  1. Either the long, laborious process to build your facility from the ground up, or
  2. Locate in an existing building, forcing you to adapt to a less than perfect building. 

Now there is a third option, the Menomonie Wisconsin Virtual Speculative Building.

The advantage of a Virtual Speculative Building over an existing building is the adaptability afforded by a virtual design. With a Virtual Speculative Building, the preliminary design/study has been developed for the site to assure that the proposed building size can be accommodated and is ready to jump into the final design process. Through this approach, we have developed preliminary designs that will fit the site, which can be cost-effectively custom-tailored to your process without the added burden of demolishing and/or renovating an existing structure.  


Located on Interstate 94 at exit 45, the main corridor connecting the Twin Cities and Chicago metropolitan areas, Menomonie Wisconsin is the premier location for your new or expanding business.

The State and Xcel Energy Certified site offers easy access to major markets via Interstate 94 and State Highway 29, both 4-lane divided highways.

Menomonie boasts easy access to an extensive international transportation network including air transportation. The City offers a well-educated work force supported by three State of Wisconsin Universities & two Wisconsin Technical Colleges.

Easy access to major markets via Interstate I-94 and US Highway 29 both 4-lane divided highways.
