Moore Engineering opens Minot office to better serve northwest region
Moore Engineering isn’t new to the Minot area. We do work in communities like Harvey, Watford City, Tioga and others. We’ve completed projects in Minot and we serve on the Souris/Mouse River Study team. But with a new location in Minot, we’re expanding our ability to serve clients in that part of the state with municipal, transportation, environmental, water resource, GIS and land surveying projects.
It’s the next step for us in helping people in and around the Minot area deal with the significant challenges associated with water and infrastructure issues. Brock Storrusten, PE, a 17-year veteran with the company who served as assistant city engineer for West Fargo during that city’s growth and expansion, will be managing the Minot office. Hiring is underway, with job openings as we add engineers, survey crew and other personnel.
We’re excited to bring our additional resources, expertise and experience to help the northwest area build and rebuild. Moore Engineering is a company with a 50-year-plus history of growing along side our clients—adding services and staff to help them deal with everything from natural disasters to rapid growth to the many issues associated with simply maintaining strong, safe and healthy communities. Some of what we’ll bring to Minot:
- Experience in municipal and water resources
- Knowledge of how to develop funding sources in both pubic and private sectors
- Ability to bring people and resources together, identifying all the resources needed to make a project successful
- A client-centered philosophy, resulting in decades-long relationships
Moore has a history of growing along with clients
As the longtime city engineer for West Fargo, we were instrumental in planning and implementing the Sheyenne Diversion project that protects West Fargo from flooding and continues to play an integral role in developing, building and managing the region’s water resources. It’s also a city that has experienced rapid growth. We are currently expanding our headquarters there—adding some 8,000 square feet to total about 30,000—and have added transportation and environmental divisions, while growing our GIS division. The expansion will add 34 new offices and additional meeting space.
We believe Moore Engineering and Minot are a great fit and we’re here to stay. Community involvement wherever we do business has been a company hallmark since we opened our doors. Just one example, each year we pick a charity and raise money for it during our Christmas party. This year, it was clear Minot was in need so we asked our employees to think about doing a little extra and the company committed to matching every dollar. Employees donated just under $8,000 so the next morning Moore Engineering sent $16,000 to the Minot Area Community Foundation to help flooded residents restore and rebuild their homes.
As Minot and the region continue to recover from the flood and meet the challenges of growth spurred by a booming energy industry, Moore Engineering will be there to help.
