Wolverine Building Group & SE MI Construction Firm
Wolverine Building Group has acquired Contracting Resources Inc., a construction firm based in Brighton, Michigan.
Contracting Resources Inc. was founded in 2001 by Jim Barnas. Barnas, a 40-year veteran in the construction industry, started the firm after he spent time working for large construction corporations and recognized that he was ready to control and manage his own commercial contracting company. Barnas also wanted to operate in his hometown of Brighton so he could be more involved in the community. Over the years, Barnas built a strong book of business based on relationships, treating clients with dignity and respect, and always doing the right thing. Contracting Resources has 21 team members and offers construction management services to clients in health care, retail, religious, commercial, and medical office markets. Barnas will continue to work at Contracting Resources until the end of 2021 to ensure a smooth transition before retiring from the company.
“Contracting Resources is a very impressive operation. They have a solid team and a great reputation. As we continue to learn more about the organization, I am continually impressed with Jim’s leadership and the direction he took the business. We are very grateful that as a part of the sale, Jim has agreed to stay on the team to help with our transition,” said Aaron Jonker, President and Co-owner of Wolverine Building Group.
