Founded in 1950, W. Gohman Construction is a family-run business rooted in our core values of teamwork, integrity, and commitment. While much has changed over the years, the most significant cornerstones of our business have not.

First and foremost, we’re builders. Our tools, techniques and technology may have advanced over the years, but at the core, we are still creating places for people to live, work, and play.

With offices in St. Joseph and the Brainerd Lakes area, W. Gohman provides historic renovation projects through its sister company Artistic Stone & Concrete as well as single and multi-family residential projects through Creative Custom Builders.

At W. Gohman, every project is approached in the unique manner it demands, and every project receives the best we have to give.


Our skilled, experienced employees are diverse in their knowledge and understand how one task directly affects the next.

Our professionals include: estimators/project managers, draftsmen, value engineers, quality control specialists, schedulers, administrative staff, and field superintendents as well as tradesmen. When you work with W. Gohman Construction, you’re not just getting the knowledge of one company, you’re getting the experience of an entire staff passionate about what they do.

With that passion comes innovative ideas, budget saving techniques and a commitment to you and the project at hand.



Our experience, knowledge and proven processes result in maximized value. In fact, it is engrained within us to deliver the best value for our clients.


The cornerstone of our business is delivering exceptional service and quality projects that add value to our client’s business strategy.


We have an obligation to the community, our clients and our employees to maintain a workplace free of hazards to health and safety. Creating a positive and safe job site also provides a productive environment for staff, subcontractors and visitors.


Backed by our impressive track record of more than 65 years in business, we act with honesty and integrity in our conduct with fellow employees, business partners and customers.


Our management philosophy and our team’s approach is based on our highly collaborative project plan that promotes teamwork, expedited scheduling, effective cost management, high quality results and risk management. When implemented, the project plans will act as a guide throughout pre-construction, construction and occupancy.

"Our commitment to satisfying our customer goes beyond the bricks, concrete and steel of the project."

-Michael Gohman, President
