A History of Excellence
Gary Granger comes from a long line of family entrepreneurs. His great uncle, Dorr, left West Michigan in the 1930s to attend college in Lansing. He got a job working part-time for a construction company. When the owner ran into some financial difficulty, Dorr decided to step in and take over the operation. Dorr invited his brother Keith, Gary’s grandfather, to join the business. Together, they built churches, commercial buildings, and other structures in Michigan over the next 20 years. The pair even invented the first “kit” approach to building log cabins.
A Family Business
By 1958, enough family members had joined the business to prompt the two Granger brothers to split their successful venture and create two new companies. Keith and his three sons, including Gary’s father, Alton, started what eventually became Granger Construction.
The oldest of the third generation of Grangers, Gary started working for the family company in 1977 after finishing a degree in architectural engineering at the University of Colorado.
A New Venture
In 1996, after nearly 20 years of working for his father, Gary left the family business to form Granger Group.
Founded on the principles of honesty, integrity, and service, Granger Group's commitment to excellence set the company apart. From the beginning, Gary sought to deliver built environments that would improve work, life, and community. He believed he could provide extraordinary value by combining innovative solutions with a systematic delivery process. He was right.
A Bright Future
Granger Group has acquired and developed projects for state and local government, education, businesses, and even residential. But healthcare has been our specialty.
Granger Group broke ground on the first fully integrated, 100% LEED certified Health Village in the world in 2003. The 180-acre Metro Health Village includes acute care, wellness, retail, hospitality, and educational services.
Currently, Granger Group has partnered with Granger Construction to complete First & Main™ at Metro Health Village, a premier senior living community scheduled to open in 2015.
