Our Firm

Knutson Builds Masterpieces

Look out across the skyline. What do you see? A strikingly beautiful, thriving community full of wonderful people and unlimited opportunity. At Knutson, we also see that many of the landmark buildings throughout the communities we serve bear the mark of our construction expertise. It’s humbling and gratifying.

Our 500 employees provide the backbone of the services we provide and are a group of talented, passionate and innovative professionals. We cherish the opportunity to serve our clients and are proud that seventy percent of our business comes from owners with whom we have previously worked. For over ten decades we have preplanned, managed or built virtually every size and type of facility in the world — hundreds of clinics, hospitals, churches, assisted care facilities, libraries, museums, government facilities, environmental facilities and universities.

Today, with offices in Minneapolis, Iowa City, Rochester, Cedar Rapids, and Altoona much of our work comes from customers who rely on us as their preferred construction partner. These ongoing relationships say something important about long-term loyalty built on trust and success. We hope you enjoy your visit. If you have any questions, please call Brad Johnson or Dave Bastyr.

"The way their people worked with our building materials, their respect for the challenge, the spirit they brought to the entire project — it all speaks to the enduring quality of this building and to the quality of Knutson's people."

--Nina Archibald, Former Director, Minnesota Historical Society
