MRC has vast experience in the construction of highly functional office buildings. We work with local architects and engineers to coordinate and design strategic and efficient office space for all our clients, whether it be the simple single-story or the more elaborate multiple-story building.
With the ever-growing presence of online shopping, MRC knows that retail stores require more planning than ever before. We work with every client to determine their needs and expectations and then go to work to provide a high-quality retail space that will exceed our client’s expectations at a reasonable cost.
MRC is not the largest local contractor in the area, which gives us the advantage of offering personal service and attention to detail for every one of our clients. We take our commitment to quality and personal service seriously and will do anything we can to deliver customer satisfaction.

Having built the 111,500-square foot United Quality Cooperative Travel Center in New Town, ND, we are confident in our ability to deliver a strategically engineered, quality-built center.

MRC has earned a reputation of being able to consistently deliver a wide variety of quality buildings which includes several local strip malls. Each project is carefully engineered and built with the client’s business needs in mind and the satisfaction of each customer is our number one goal.
A convenience store should live up to its name of not only being convenient but also providing the details, such as an inviting atmosphere, a well-lit space, ample parking and good traffic flow in and out of the store.

Our forty years of building experience gives us an edge in knowing what matters to our clients.

MRC specializes in exclusive builds for combining office, shop and warehouse space. We know that each client’s needs are unique, and we are committed to deliver the most efficient and cost-effective space possible based on those needs.
I had the pleasure of working with MRC on the Travel Center in New Town, ND. Based upon this experience, I strongly recommend them as a general contractor for any project large or small. The Travel Center is 96,000 sq ft with a 15,500 sq ft mezzanine which houses the administration offices. We approached this project as a Design Build, we especially like the design build concept because we were able to make changes during construction, and this has worked out well for us. MRC is honest and upfront, keeping the lines of communication open throughout the project and has a good working relationship with subcontractors and all the parties concerned. All issues were dealt with in a timely manner and regular meetings were held to work out details before issues became problems. We are very much happy with the way the building turned out and that MRC is dedicated to doing what is necessary to complete a project that is on time and under budget. I can honestly say that we were treated fairly and look forward to working with MRC in the future. They truly understand what it takes to maintain a success relationship with their customers.

We were very happy how Missouri River Contracting attended to all our specialized electric, plumbing, and technology needs. Tim Miller made the building process easy. Our dental equipment suppliers were able to work with Missouri River Contracting to create a seamless final project. Our patients need to be seen in a timely manner and on schedule. We were very pleased with the attention Missouri River Contracting gave to our project. We were able to open our clinics on time and see our patients in a completed dental clinic. We really appreciated Missouri River Contracting and Tim Miller creating a low stress building process. They made sure our project was done to our specifications, on the agreed timeline, and at the price that was quoted. You really could not ask for more! We were very impressed with how well the subcontractors and building team worked together. Our dental equipment specialists and suppliers had no problems and were able to work as a team to get our project done right! Our North Dental Clinic was a huge undertaking. We were so impressed with the process and how everything turned out, we didn’t even consider working with another contractor. We are even more pleased with our Mandan Clinic! If we ever build another office it will be with Missouri River Contracting."
"Gene and his team at Missouri River Contracting did an outstanding job for us on our Washburn and Williston facilities. They do great, quality work in a timely manner. The best quality that stuck out to me was whenever an issue arose in the field the MRC team was always quick to catch it and notify me with real time solutions to help keep the project moving forward. This greatly reduced any potential delays and helped keep the project on schedule. MRC was always ready to step up to the plate and get it down – no questions asked!"
"I have had the opportunity to work with Gene Welle and Missouri River Contracting, Inc. for many years, my expectations have always been met, MRC goes above and beyond to make sure our needs and wants are met.
