Headquartered in Grand Forks, ND, Construction Engineers provides Construction Management and Design-Build Services.

“Do Something Constructive” is more than a clever saying for the team at Construction Engineers; it is the founding principle for how our company approaches each and every day. Founded by brothers John and Kurt Eickhof in 1978, Construction Engineers recently completed its ownership transition to Scott Kringstad and Jeff Melgaard at the end of 2015.

Construction Engineers stays committed to providing innovative construction solutions and exceptional management services, ensuring that every building project is a success. By being “constructive” with the services we provide, our team is able to deliver complex projects on aggressive schedules and within the client’s budget expectations.

Construction Engineers operates a commercial division focusing primarily on office, education, healthcare, and public facilities, as well as an industrial division which builds processing plants and infrastructure systems. We have strong relationships with local and regional government officials, as well as the major subcontractors, suppliers, and vendors in the region.

Our company employs a highly skilled team of experienced construction professionals including preconstruction managers, estimators, project managers, site superintendents, and trade workers. In addition to managing the entire building process, our crews have the ability to self-perform structural services, including concrete and foundations, steel erection, carpentry and framing, pre-engineered buildings, and equipment installation.

To better serve growing markets in the region, Construction Engineers has staff located at offices in Devils Lake, Fargo, Grand Forks, Mandan, and Watford City, ND, and Bemidji, MN.
