Customer Background:

The Boldt Company is a fourth-generation family- and employee-owned professional construction services firm based in Appleton, Wisconsin. With a history dating back to 1889, Boldt is known for its commitment to honesty, reliability, and innovative construction solutions. The company specializes in delivering high-quality projects for a wide range of clients, with a focus on providing high value to customers, their customers, and the communities they serve.


Boldt faced a common challenge for companies in the industry-- to effectively integrate multiple stakeholders in healthcare construction projects. The complexity of designing and building healthcare facilities demanded a holistic approach that aligned the owner, design team, contractors, and suppliers to ensure efficient project execution. With evolving project requirements and design standards, Boldt needed a casework partner who could offer consultative solutions beyond traditional transactional offerings.


Boldt sought a vendor who could provide not only high-quality casework, but also collaboration on project design, constructability, and customization. FC Dadson emerged as the ideal partner due to their expertise, flexibility, and willingness to actively engage with the entire project team. The Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) model was instrumental in fostering this collaborative approach, allowing all stakeholders to work closely together from early concept to project completion.


FC Dadson's consultative approach enabled the Project Design/Construction Teams to improve design standards, challenge initial design assumptions, and tailor solutions that aligned with the specific needs and value of each healthcare project. Their commitment to proactive communication, adaptability, and high-quality casework fabrication ensured that Boldt could consistently deliver exceptional results to their clients. Projects within the ThedaCare healthcare system, as well as other healthcare and office buildings, experienced enhanced project efficiency and customization due to FC Dadson's contributions.


FC Dadson's role as a consultative partner significantly impacted the quality of healthcare facilities managed and constructed by Boldt. Their ability to customize casework solutions, engineer them to fit project requirements, and respond to field conditions resulted in successful, on-schedule deliveries. The collaborative approach, with FC Dadson working closely with both the design team and Boldt, fostered a culture of open communication and efficient problem-solving. The impact of this partnership resonated across the construction process, from design and fabrication to installation, ultimately enhancing the final outcomes of the projects.
