Facility Planning

A thorough assessment of your existing facilities is the perfect way to kickstart your project. By examining your current facility’s strengths and weaknesses, we can determine what you need and what you can afford. We analyze the current conditions, deficiencies, the building systems, security, and the technology to develop actionable recommendations that you can use to plan your new facility.

Schools have a Pre-referendum process to engage their constituency. To learn more about our Pre-referendum services click here.


As soon as Donlar is part of your project, we collaborate with the owner and architect. We are involved in all aspects of Pre-Construction to improve the facility’s functionality and durability while focusing on maximizing budget and maintaining schedule. Our holistic approach means that your entire project is planned well before construction begins and you know exactly what to expect in the construction process.


Donlar’s approach to construction management is based in our team of highly skilled and experienced professionals. We make ourselves the focal point of collaboration for the owner, architect, and contractors to ensure that all operations are handled smoothly, meeting the owner’s requirements. Our experience in self performed work gives us a more intimate understanding of construction. Our staff has worked on projects like yours, and we know what it takes to actually perform each step. We can take our practical skills and knowledge of construction and apply it while serving as your professional construction management team.


When the time comes to pass the torch and hand over your new facility, we won’t just throw you the keys and walk away. Donlar Construction remains on your team throughout the warranty phase and beyond, ensuring that any issues are dealt with and your facility continues to function as it was designed. We train your team to manage their new facility, showing them how to operate the various systems and how to maintain it.

Self-Performed Construction

Donlar Construction’s Construction management abilities are enhanced by our ability to self-perform work, which includes selective demolition, concrete, rough & finish carpentry, and concrete polishing. When self-performing on your construction site, we have more direct control over the variables impacting schedule and craftsmanship, resulting in an overall better project. Even when we are not utilizing our self-performed construction on your site, our intimate knowledge of the trades we self-perform gives us a greater understanding of the construction process and serves as a priceless asset for our Project Managers, Superintendents, and Estimators.

“In construction management, the STMA School District has formed an alliance with Donlar. To us, forming this long-term working relationship with Donlar has been extremely important and valuable... I highly recommend Donlar and have found them to be an excellent partner in renovation and building new schools for the St. Michael-Albertville School District. The school board members and community are pleased with the partnership we have formed with Donlar.”
