Real estate investment firm owner forms new Grand Rapids construction company
GRAND RAPIDS – Real estate investor Tim Engen has founded a new company that will focus on construction projects in the office, medical, industrial and retail sectors.
Engen, President of Vision real estate investment at 140 Monroe Center NW, recently launched CarbonSix Construction Inc. The companies are housed in the same office building, but there are plans to build a new office for the two companies as well as another tenant.

CarbonSix starts “small” with six employees and some work in two roles at Vision Real Estate and CarbonSix, Engen told MiBiz.
CarbonSix provides services including construction management, pre-construction estimation, design and construction, and owner representation. The company works with VREI, but was also formed to provide construction services to other owners across West Michigan, Engen said.
“We saw the opportunity to create a company that not only complements (Vision Real Estate Investment), but also has tremendous benefit to the growing West Michigan community,” said Engen, who will serve as president of CarbonSix.
CarbonSix is working on several projects including a 63,000 square foot industrial building with multiple tenants along the M-6 in the Byron Center, the Valduga Business Center. CarbonSix is also working on the construction of a 70,000 square meter industrial building in Caledonia that also features an M-6 facade, the East Gaines Business Center. Both projects are being developed together with Vision Real Estate Investment.
“As owners and developers of commercial real estate, we look forward to working with the owners, listening to their needs and using our experience to guide them through the construction process and delivering them a product that they will enjoy for many years to come”, so tight said.
