The Dirt: Wm. Winkler Co. expands Newman Lake headquarters

Wm. Winkler Co., a local concrete construction contractor, is expanding its headquarters in the Newman Lake area with construction of a second building.

The project is building the footings, foundation and shell for a 20,500-square-foot heavy equipment repair shop with a wash bay and fueling island canopy, according to permit records.

Spokane County listed an estimated $1 million project value.

The new structure is near Wm. Winkler Co.’s main office building, located at 5516 N. Starr Road. The company expanded that headquarters building recently to add office space, and it updated the exterior.

Operating here since 1919, Wm. Winkler provides concrete services for clients around the Northwest. With more than 150 employees, the company does preconstruction and engineering services, technical consulting and construction for projects that include curbs and sidewalks, structural work and paving.

Allstate agent leases space

An Allstate Insurance agent, Chad Johnston, has leased a 1,300-square-foot office space at 106 N. Evergreen Road in Spokane Valley.

The Johnston Agency’s new space is near the intersection of Evergreen and Sprague Avenue.

Guy Byrd of Sperry Van Ness Cornerstone represented the tenant in the transaction. Levi McCormick of SDS Realty assisted the landlord, Tracy-Hansen LLC.
