One year after celebrating its 50th anniversary, Moore Engineering, Inc. (MEI), announced a plan to expand the civil engineering firm’s headquarters in West Fargo to accommodate both current and future growth. The 8,000 square foot addition will bring the total space to more than 30,000 square feet and provide necessary office and meeting space for the firm.
“We have to thank our customers for the need to expand,” said Jeff Volk, president and CEO of the employee-owned company. “This new space is necessary to continue to be responsive to our client base – many who have been with us for decades. We continue to grow by holding our client-centered philosophies true.”
MEI has experienced more than 30 percent growth since the current building was built in 2008, with space designed to house a total of 72 employees- engineers to the support staff necessary to provide civil engineering service to small cities and communities- as well as advancing municipal infrastructures and serving watersheds, associations and other entities through water resource and transportation projects. MEI has completed more than 15,000 projects in Minnesota and North Dakota.
“We’re matching services to client needs,” added Volk, “so two new divisions, environmental and transportation have been created and our GIS division continues to grow, and that growth creates additional jobs and space needs to service our clients.”
The additional space will create private offices for 34 staff, 10 of which are already onboard, as well as conference and meeting space. The new addition will be added to the north of the existing structure and parking for an additional 65 vehicles will be added to the south. Construction is planned to be complete in late spring of 2012, prior to the firm’s busy summer season.
MEI (www.mooreengineeringinc.com) has headquartered in West Fargo, N.D., since 1964 and also maintains a branch office in Fergus Falls, Minn., to better serve Minnesota-based clients.
