For more than 25 Years Mosaic Construction’s Design-Build Approach has Led to Innovative Construction and Management Services
Mosaic Construction’s Design-Build approach has led to Innovative Building and Management Services for over 25 years. Mosaic Construction has provided outstanding design-build services with a focus on renovation and remodeling for commercial and residential property owners dedicated to maximizing a property’s functionality, aesthetic value and overall appeal.
Mosaic Construction understands the entire process of consulting, constructing and transforming properties, exceeding each client’s expectations. Projects are delivered on time, within the client’s budget and with minimal disruption. Through a consultative approach, living and working environments are created that align with each client’s requirements; turning a vision into a reality.
“We bring it all together by creating the project that exactly meets our clients’ business needs. Our design-build approach resonates with our clients who appreciate our attention to detail and quality construction,” according to Mosaic Construction principals, Andy Poticha, Ira Singer and Mike Frazin.
The Mosaic approach starts with listening to a client’s needs to design the ideal plan and then install the products and options that will maximize a property’s functionality and overall aesthetic value. The end goal is to ensure that each project will be on time, on budget and exceeds expectations.
Mosaic Construction’s expertise is defined by three specific areas:
Mosaic Construction partners with commercial property owners to enhance and upgrade office, retail and investment properties, executing complete renovations of nearly every scope and size to enhance each project. The Mosaic design-build team provides budget forecasts, coordinates procurement of products and organizes trusted trade partners. Mosaic’s offerings include access to proprietary resources and processes to help clients resolve their design-build challenges. Mosaic is adept at creating commercial spaces that are neutral, impersonal and ready for tenant improvement once the lease or sales agreement is signed.
Mosaic Construction has the expertise to complete commercial renovations of nearly every scope and size, including a focus on market rate apartment buildings, student housing, affordable housing and senior housing.
Multi-family owners and managers desire a high rate of return when they invest in their properties. Mosaic Construction provides multi-family owners and managers with expert advice to help increase their asset’s value through upgrading the functionality and overall aesthetic appeal of common areas, unit renovations and amenity spaces.
Mosaic Construction has been designated as a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS). This experience gives the company the ability to modify existing spaces by increasing accessibility and meeting the special needs of residents. As a designated CAPS consultant, Mosaic understands the senior remodeling market, technology, tools and resources available.
Property Managers Depend on Mosaic to Anticipate their Renovation Needs
When Mosaic Construction designs a renovation and bids on the project, this bid is backed by 25 years of renovation design-build experience that allows Mosaic to analyze the needs of property managers and create the ideal renovation solution, including build-outs and exterior and interior improvements. Property managers trust that when Mosaic wins the bid, they will assemble the most qualified team so that property managers can strengthen relationships with tenants, investors, boards and owners.

“Mosaic is a company that cares and understands the importance of helping others. By partnering with a multitude of organizations, our company achieves real success. Having a ‘Pay it Forward’ mindset provides us the opportunity to find ways to make a difference through the giving of our time, resources and financial contributions,” according to Singer.
The company understands that the rewards of giving might sometimes seem intangible, but they have a lasting impact on team members and the organizations Mosaic Construction supports.
“Our diverse relationships extend to local non-profit organizations, community groups and Midwest-based charities, as well as national and worldwide organizations. We make the world better when we lead by example,” notes Poticha.
