Purcell Construction Changes Name to Purcell
Change is Part of Major Expansion Plan
STILLWATER, Minn. – May 17, 2002 – Purcell Construction, a Stillwater-based premier home architecture and construction company, today announced it has changed its name to Purcell. Specializing in the renovation and expansion of quality homes, Purcell is one of the largest full-service home architecture and construction companies in the eastern Twin Cities.
The name change is part of a major expansion plan at the company, which includes an aggressive new branding and marketing campaign, and plans to open a second office and showroom in St. Paul. The new Purcell name more accurately represents a broader offering of home services. Most recently, Purcell added interior design, landscape architecture and custom home building to its list of services, which have always included renovation, restoration, additions and finishing work.
“With the trend toward investing in your home, our business has grown considerably,” said Tim Purcell, Jr., founder and president of Purcell. “More and more, people are realizing that their house is one of their best investments and they are also spending more time at home, enjoying their families and entertaining others.” Another trend, according to Purcell, is the focus on neighbors and communities. “Our clients are in communities that foster stability, including Stillwater and neighborhoods in St. Paul, like Highland Park and the Summit/Grand area, so they’re more likely to stay put. They are simply updating their homes to best fit their changing lifestyles.”
Purcell is spearheading the company’s growth, by offering unique advantages over other companies, such as on-staff architects who are involved with every project and commitment to the highest quality craftsmanship. “We are much more than a construction company, and so we wanted our name to reflect our growth in other services.
Purcell, a Stillwater native, founded the company in 1998. Since then, it has grown into a team of 10 full-time staff members and a network of more than 300 sub-contractors. With the ongoing interest in home enhancement, Purcell expects continued significant growth in the future, and has just completed comprehensive demographic research to determine which markets in the Twin Cities best replicate the characteristics of the Stillwater community. Purcell will use this data to determine where to open a second office and showroom to serve customers throughout the metropolitan area.
Purcell’s current projects include a multi-million dollar renovation and expansion of a property in Stillwater and construction of a custom executive home in May Township, which will be featured in the Parade of Homes Remodelers Showcase, Oct. 11-13.
