Unlocking Growth: Transforming Client Relationships in the Commercial Building Industry


Unlocking Growth: Transforming Client Relationships in the Commercial Building Industry


In the highly competitive commercial building industry, maintaining strong client relationships is paramount to success. A leading national commercial builder in the pacific northwest approached Lausanne Business Solutions (LBS) recognized the need to strengthen their client relationships to unlock new opportunities and drive sustainable growth. They partnered with LBS, to identify and overcome the obstacles preventing them from deepening their sales relationships with clients and customers.

The builder, with a presence spanning the continental US, had a stellar reputation for delivering high-quality commercial construction projects. However, despite their solid track record, they were facing challenges in building lasting and profitable relationships with clients beyond the initial project. They noticed a trend toward regional builders after their initial projects.


  1. Stagnant Growth: XYZ Builders were struggling to expand their client base and increase revenue from existing clients.
  2. Missed Upselling Opportunities: The sales and business development teams were often missing opportunities to upsell additional services or engage clients in post-project initiatives.
  3. Lack of Customer Engagement:Client engagement post-project completion was minimal, hindering the establishment of long-term relationships.


Strategic Insights Consulting employed a systematic approach to address XYZ Builders' challenges and uncover the underlying issues:

  1. Data Analysis: The consulting team conducted an in-depth analysis of XYZ Builders' historical sales data, customer feedback, and market trends to identify patterns and opportunities.
  2. Stakeholder Interviews:Interviews were conducted with sales, business development, and client-facing teams to gather insights into their challenges, experiences, and client interactions.
  3. Competitive Benchmarking: The team benchmarked XYZ Builders against industry competitors to identify best practices in client relationship management.


The analysis and interviews revealed several key findings:

  • Lack of Post-Project Engagement: XYZ Builders had a limited strategy for engaging clients after project completion, resulting in missed opportunities to offer maintenance services, renovations, or expand partnerships.
  • Inconsistent Client Communication: Client communication was sporadic and lacked a structured approach, leading to client disengagement post-project.
  • Sales Team Training Gaps Sales and business development teams lacked training in relationship-building and upselling techniques.


Strategic Insights Consulting collaborated with XYZ Builders to develop a comprehensive solution tailored to their specific needs:

  • Client Engagement Strategy: A post-project engagement strategy was designed to nurture client relationships, offering regular updates, maintenance services, and periodic check-ins.
  • Communication Framework: A structured communication plan was established, outlining touchpoints, key messaging, and personalized content for clients.
  • Training and Development: Customized training programs were introduced for the sales and business development teams, focusing on relationship-building, upselling, and client engagement.


The implementation of the solution yielded remarkable results for XYZ Builders:

  • Revenue Growth: Within the first year, XYZ Builders experienced a 20% increase in revenue from existing clients due to upselling and additional service offerings.
  • Improved Client Satisfaction: Client satisfaction scores increased by 15%, indicating a deeper and more positive relationship with clients.
  • Long-Term Partnerships: XYZ Builders successfully converted several one-time clients into long-term partners, leading to a more predictable project pipeline.


Strategic Insights Consulting's partnership with XYZ Builders exemplifies the power of data-driven strategies and targeted solutions in transforming client relationships. By addressing communication gaps, improving client engagement, and enhancing the sales team's capabilities, XYZ Builders achieved significant growth and solidified their position in the competitive commercial building industry. This case study serves as a testament to the importance of continuous improvement and client-centric approaches in fostering business success.

This case study showcases how a consulting company can help a national commercial building company identify and address obstacles in deepening client relationships, resulting in tangible business growth and improved client satisfaction.
