History

Since 1947, BSI has been an innovator in corporate interiors, and has helped define how great work environments are designed, built and furnished in Wisconsin. BSI began as a pioneer in the acoustical ceilings industry, installing some of the first suspended ceilings in the Milwaukee area. When a method to deliver HVAC from the ceiling plenum was needed, BSI designed, patented and installed the first AIR BAR (pictured) at The Parker Pen Company. Similar systems are still in use today.

Over time, BSI researched and added new products to its offering. The partial list below are industry-leading, progressive products and ideas that BSI pioneered:

BSI’s comprehensive Design, Build, Furnish approach is innovative and unique.  There are few companies in the United States that offer the spectrum of products and services that BSI provides its clients. This “DBF platform” provides BSI’s clients with multiple advantages over the traditional Design – Bid – Build approach.  A “one stop shop” is convenient and hassle free, and by eliminating the multiple mark-ups of sub-contractors, BSI provides extremely competitive pricing. The DBF process is quicker, allowing clients to see dramatically reduced time frames, and earlier occupancy dates.
