“This addition will deliver significant benefits for our clients throughout the Twin Cities and Upper Midwest,” said Gene Sieve, Burns & McDonnell Vice President in Minneapolis-St. Paul. “With safety and efficiency at the forefront of everything we do, our employee-owners provide considerable value for our clients during every phase of their projects.”
The local construction team has been working with multiple clients on various projects as part of other Burns & McDonnell groups over the last few years. The newly formed group of experienced project managers and project control managers is actively working with clients on an engineer-procure-construct (EPC) project for nine solar energy generation plants in Wisconsin. The team is managing construction services for the substation and interconnecting power lines (gen-tie) portion of the project.
“With the addition of this construction group, our Minneapolis-St. Paul office can now provide program management, design-build, and EPC offerings to their clients,” said Brett Williams, President of Construction at Burns & McDonnell.
The EPC project delivery method supports early project collaboration between project team partners and owners, which creates more opportunities for savings and efficiencies to be engineered into designs before any construction begins.
