Our Specialties in New Construction

Residential Subdivisions

Building homes since 1966, Deshano Construction started with residential construction. Over time, our experience merged into the development of subdivisions all around central Michigan.

Our subdivisions cover a wide variety of living environments. From lakefront living to golf course communities, for city or country living, we have developed modern homes to meet a range of residential preferences.

Some of our most popular communities blend the love of a single-family home with condominium-type amenities. We call these locations our “site condos”, which help relieve homeowners from certain exterior maintenance tasks.


Commercial Construction

Our team has over 5 decades of construction experience, and the expertise to translate your vision into custom design and build specifications! From apartment buildings to car wash facilities, DeShano Construction is the partner of choice for builders, real estate developers, and commercial property management firms.

Apartment Developments

Our track record consists of over 40 apartment developments residing in nearly 20 central Michigan communities. We are the ideal partner for development projects since we have the expertise required to build a profitable apartment community. From custom designs to development, as well as providing general contracting services, DeShano Construction can assist you throughout the entire project.

Retail & Restaurants

We have experience with a wide variety of retail projects as well. We provide design build, construction management, and general contracting expertise to every retail project, and our clients appreciate the level of expertise we bring to each partnership.



Our condominiums provide carefree, easy living. For those looking for safe, modern living spaces without the hassle of lawn work and exterior maintenance, look no further than DeShano! Deshano Construction has a wide variety of condominium communities.

We choose only the most optimal locations for our condominium communities. Ranging from golf course communities to waterfront property, we have a long track record of experience in developing condominium communities!

Adult Care Facilities

Deshano Construction has independently built and operated 17 adult-care facilities. Our assisted living facilities provide convenient amenities, social activities, and comfortable living spaces. Elders can live in a supportive community without the cost-prohibitive price tag of a nursing home.

We also partner up with real estate developers to provide essential services for their adult care facilities. These include (but are not limited to) conducting market studies, financial planning, budgeting, assisting with estimating operating profit projections, as well as forecasting financing requirements.

Once the financial projections are complete, we can work with developers to assist in obtaining the proper permits, then file the proper state licenses, and finally deliver an architectural design that optimizes comfort, style, and profitability.

At Deshano Construction, we strive to leverage our past experiences building and managing adult care facilities in order to shorten our partner’s learning curves.

Full portfolio of Construction Services

When you hire DeShano Construction, you are choosing a qualified partner for your project. Our goal is to maximize the profitability of your investment through efficient designs, streamlined construction management, and providing turnkey general contracting solutions.


Design Build

Choosing DeShano Construction will allow you as the owner to maximize your daily operations by allowing us to manage all aspects of construction. We will provide a dedicated project manager to serve as your single point of contact from site selection to completion of the project.


Construction Management

We can manage the pre-construction activities and establish both the budget for the project as well as the delivery timelines. Providing these services to more advanced project owners means our team can serve as an additional arm, helping to deliver optimal profitability for every project!

General Contracting

Our general contracting services are ideal for project owners with their own pre-construction teams and project managers. We will provide an on-site contact to help manage all of the daily operations, keep sub-contractors on schedule, and adhere to the project’s budget.

Licensed, Bonded, and Insured

At DeShano Construction, we understand how important it is to maintain the proper construction licenses and insurance. Safety is our number one priority, and holding the proper credentials is the first step in the proper execution of every construction project!

Energy Star Builder

An Energy Star-qualified home requires a third-party inspection that evaluates several different factors. Energy Star homes must be deemed 30% more efficient than the 1993 Model Energy Code or a minimum of 15% greater than the published state energy codes.

When you choose a DeShano home, you can be confident that your home will exceed state codes for energy efficiency.
