We Know Retail!

Twenty-One Years and Building

We are in our 21st year of business at Tenant Construction. We’ve been busy serving many construction managers and store development teams nationwide. 2015 was an improved economic year for retailers, subcontractors and general contractors. We remain financially sound and strongly positioned to serve your team. We employ salaried Superintendents and subcontract experienced local trades specializing in retail store construction. Superintendents manage each project onsite from start to finish. They ensure projects are completed with quality finishes and firm deadlines. Local trades ensure competitive market pricing and their relationships with building officials keep projects running efficiently. Warranty work is also managed through local subcontractors in order to provide immediate attention to store maintenance needs. Our management team is uniquely qualified from the corporate side of construction management and retail operations. We are recognized as one of the nation’s “Top Retail Contractors” in the 2015 May/June edition of Commercial Construction & Renovation Magazine. It is Tenant Construction’s 16th consecutive year of recognition as a top retail contractor. We want to join and serve your store development team. “WE KNOW RETAIL” and want to work for you! pres-sign Mr. Bob Haben President

Tenant Construction understands the demands placed on store development teams and the stresses of coordinating store roll-out programs. We partner with your business to provide quality, reliability and clear communications while shrinking the demands on your time. We coordinate and manage each phase of construction to complete most projects in six to eight weeks.


  • “This is the best initial store done by any of our first time contractors. We are very pleased that all of the work is complete and ready for our merchandising team. We will refer you throughout our corporate store development program.”

  • “The store looks great and I could not believe that it was completed on time with all of the changes made. There is usually construction going on when we are moving in.”

  • “You are still by far the best contractor I have ever dealt with in any of the projects I have done.”

  • “Wow! Thank you so much! I really do appreciate your dedication to our company.”

  • “Loved the new build-out. Store came out amazing. Nice evolution and all the brand signage inside is great. Nicely done.”
