After having offices on the third floor of the Cape Girardeau Commerce Bank building for 20-years, Artisan Contracting is relocating its operations to larger facilities at 2097 Corporate Circle in Cape. Tom Kelsey, broker with Lorimont Commercial Real Estate, who handled the recent real estate transaction, announced the contracting firm would move into the 14,475 square-foot office and warehouse industrial building.

The new location, originally built by Metco Barge Line is within the Six Thirty Industrial Park and contains 4-acres of property in addition to the offices, warehouse and fenced yard areas. Artisan was formed in 1995 as a general contracting company primarily involved in industrial construction and maintenance projects including structural concrete, steel erection, equipment setting, pile driving, and deep shoring. They also offer design/build construction services in pre-engineering buildings. Kelsey said the company plans to be relocated into the new facilities by early summer. The business also has a satellite office in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri. Most of their projects are located within the mid-west United States.
