“My Architectural firm designed the Lyric Theatre in Harbor Springs and Ironwood Construction Company was the general contractor for the project. I have been involved with over $1 billion dollars of construction in my lifetime and I can honestly say I have never dealt with a more competent and cooperative general contractor.”

“I have been in this business for over 40 years and have never worked with a more competent General Contractor than Ironwood Construction Company.”

“Ironwood completed the new second story addition/remodeling to my Quick Care facility in Petoskey.  Since my project was quite complex there were several areas of the project that were considered to be “design/build” in nature.  I found that Ironwood handled the design/build portion of my project with ease.  Ironwood’s vast knowledge and experience with building commercial buildings proved to be very helpful.  Throughout the course of our construction project Ironwood showed a true desire to make sure that I was completely satisfied with every detail.  It is without hesitation that I highly recommend Ironwood Construction Company as the general contractor for your project.”

Dr. Lo, Quick Care - Petoskey

“Our firm has worked on numerous projects with Dan Steffes and Ironwood Construction.  Dan has a diverse repertoire of construction and management experience and I have found Ironwood to be performance driven, detail oriented, professionally staffed and pleasure to work with.”

“Debbie and I want to thank you for building a wonderful residence for us at The Shores on Crooked Lake.  You and your staff were terrific to deal with. The construction stage went smoothly and the unit was completed on-time. The finished unit exceeded our expectations in quality and beauty. Your tradesmen couldn’t have been more helpful or talented. Now we can begin to create great memories for our children and grandchildren…  Dan, thanks again for making the experience so pleasurable.”

Dave McNeill

“Our competitively bid project included a very accelerated 4 month construction schedule to meet our needs. I was very pleased when Ironwood handed us the keys to the building in only 98 days. Their quality, professionalism and ability to meet and exceed our accelerated schedule was impressive. I would speak volumes for Ironwood’s ability to “get it done” and get it done right.”

Mike Sears, Petoskey Duplicate Bridge Club Manager

“To the crew at Ironwood Construction — Darlene and I want to take the opportunity and thank everyone at Ironwood for making our “up north” condominium dream come true. Dan and Serenity are extremely knowledgeable and comfortable to work with and are truly committed to the project until the very end. Saying without reservation, we would hire them to build a new home should the opportunity arise.”


Dr. and Mrs. Mark S. Medel

It is my pleasure to recommend Ironwood Construction for your potential project.

Working with Serenity and Dan and Ironwood’s entire staff was a very positive experience for us at Birchwood. Their professionalism and responsiveness not only help complete our project on time, but also help bring it under budget.

Their experience, knowledge and expertise facilitated a project we are truly proud of. Serenity and Dan were true partners with us along our entire journey of making our project come true.

Our members are extremely happy with our new 3-Way House Snack Bar, the renovations of our pool locker rooms, as well as our new main pool and family pool. Please feel free to reach out if you would like a tour of our completed project.

 “Ironwood Construction Company and Dan Steffes have constructed several projects for me over the past 10 years including a beautiful condominium on Crooked Lake, renovating our home in the woods and constructing a 60,000 square foot warehouse with a railroad spur.  I have the highest regard for their integrity, construction knowledge and ability to make it happen.  Their attention to detail and demand for the highest quality workmanship are apparent in their final product.”

Fred Kilgus, AIM Industrial Group

“Dan and his team have constructed three projects with our firm.  The first was the office building that our firm currently occupies.  The other two projects were 45,000 SF buildings designed and constructed for the Road Commission of Macomb County.  These buildings included garage area for trucks, snowplows and other road commission equipment, a wash bay area, offices and lunch room.  The buildings are a steel and masonry structure.  Dan has exhibited professionalism and integrity with these projects.”

“Ironwood built the office building I purchased and finished the interior according to my designs.  The company was very professional and accommodating as to any changes they were asked to make.  The overall quality of Ironwood’s work was excellent and I could not be more pleased with the end result.”
