Armbrecht & Wierenga
Orthodontics, Grand Rapids

The Kentwood office is one of two locations for Armbrecht & Wierenga Orthodontics, a practice that specializes in braces and Invisalign.  When the doctors decided the 3,000 square foot office on 43rd street was in need of a major renovation, they chose First Companies for the job. Operating out of their Grandville office while the work was underway, the project wrapped up in just 5 weeks, one week ahead of schedule.  First Companies completely transformed the space beginning with a complete demo of the existing office.  Walls were moved and re-framed to meet the doctors’ goal of a better workflow.  In addition to new furniture, dental equipment, cabinets, flooring, walls and finishes throughout, the beautiful, modern space features a unique coffered architectural detail in the ceilings with LED lighting underneath.  Patients now have a much larger and comfortable waiting area, while the staff enjoys a larger breakroom with nicely equipped kitchen area.

“Our goals for the project were to modernize our space and adapt it to fit our current workflow. One key to a successful project is communication between everyone involved. With First Companies, the communications throughout were outstanding. I am a self-proclaimed perfectionist and First Companies hit every curveball I threw at them. Our experience with the company was excellent and they even finished a week ahead of schedule! When asked what advice I’d give to other doctors looking to undertake a similar remodel, I’d say, ‘Go with First Companies!'” Mark Wierenga, DDS, MS
