Since 1960, Moore Engineering has been dedicated to improving lives by building strong communities. In the over 60 years since Kip and Marshall Moore founded the company, Moore Engineering has completed more than 22,000 civil and environmental engineering projects throughout North Dakota and Minnesota, advancing the region’s water, municipal, campus and transportation infrastructure, and greatly improving the quality of life in dozens of Midwest cities and communities.

We attribute our success to the values that have guided our growth since the beginning. Moore Engineering is a family that believes in respect. We honor our coworkers, appreciate different cultures and value all viewpoints. We strive to show integrity in all our work. We remain consistent and honest and uphold our obligation to the health, safety and welfare of the people at the center of our work. We hold ourselves accountable and take responsibility for all of our actions and every commitment we make … every day. Finally, we are loyal and dependable, and our relationships are built on earned mutual trust.

Today, Moore Engineering is an employee-owned ESOP company with offices across the region. Our relationships extend to more than 100 communities throughout the region. Many of our clients have been with us for decades.


Improving lives by building strong communities.


Respect · Integrity · Accountability · Loyalty · Kindness


The Moore community stays strong by providing employees with opportunities for personal and professional satisfaction and growth. We believe a workplace should be fun, supportive, energizing, productive and results-driven. These attributes flow from being an employee-owned ESOP company.

Building Community through Fellowship

Moore employees love working together to build community, both inside and outside our walls, in addition to working on projects that truly makes a difference.

Just a few examples…

In West Fargo, we build a float every year for the community’s Holiday Lights Parade (several first-place finishes) and compete in the Chamber’s Corporate Cup.

In Minot, we plant trees to beautify the community and build an ice bar for an open house.

We deliver Meals on Wheels, host blood drives, organize an employee Meat-n-Skeet in the fall, compete in annual company golf outings and celebrate ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) Month throughout October.

Work That Matters

Because we’re an employee-owned ESOP company, we are all owners and responsible for our success. As a result, we hold each other accountable to do the right work for the right reasons. We are professional engineers and land surveyors, and we take that responsibility very seriously.

Our projects – water treatment, flood control, sewer, streets, GIS, drone inspections and more – sustain the conditions that make communities strong and vibrant. Our community-centric project management relies on innovative solutions from every member of the team to make budgets manageable and build consensus among stakeholders.

We are invested in this region’s success, and work with hundreds of municipalities, counties, water resource districts, developers, campuses, and private citizens to help it thrive.

Giving Back

Moore Engineering has a passion for giving back – to our employees and our communities. With Kindness as one of our values, we are committed to doing what we can to lend a hand to those in need and support community-building initiatives across the region.

For employees, we sponsor sports teams and financially support charitable organizations that they lead. Employees have a voice in corporate donations and we provide time for volunteer activities and leadership positions in charitable and professional organizations.

Professionally, we strive to sustain Moore’s growth so we can create leadership and growth opportunities for employees. We want employees to be able to match their passions with the company’s needs as much as possible. And we believe in rewarding employees for good work and having them share in the company’s success.

More Like a Family

“It’s more like a family.” That’s how Moore employees continually describe their experience working here. We care about each other and the work we do. We know we have something special happening here, and we work hard every day to share that with our clients.
