Quick response to changing times and changing markets helped Iron River Construction find its path to success.
While some businesses like to attribute their success to a single-minded dedication to a specific vision or mission, ongoing growth just as frequently results from an ability to pivot in response to changing times and markets. That’s certainly been the case for Iron River Construction, based in the Minneapolis suburb of Chaska, Minn. Owner Tracy Dahlin has built her company from the ground, up – through a housing slowdown and major recession – through a strategy of slow-and-steady growth.

When Mandy French and Carol Kratzer bought their home in 2002, the attic was unfinished and they always planned to build out that space at some point, even including it in their overall financial plan. The women worked very closely with their financial advisor and started saving in 2008 to turn it into their master bedroom suite.
By 2013 they were meeting with Iron River Construction for another project and decided to show the space to Tracy Dahlin (the owner and president of Iron River). A few months later, the couple started the initial meetings to get the estimate for the attic remodel. From there, the project was broken into three phases: framing, electrical, plumbing, and windows; foam insulation; and drywall, flooring, paint, plumbing fixtures, tile, tub, and finishing touches.
