Niskanen Apartments/Parking Lot Improvements, Fargo, ND

The project developed three new apartment buildings for North Dakota State University in Fargo, ND.  The buildings where added to help with NDSUs growing enrollment and its need for more student housing. The buildings were designed and constructed in one summer to be ready for the following school year. MBN provide design and construction services on civil, mechanical and electrical systems to facilitate a short build process. Our target date was achieved and students were able to move in prior to school starting. Also included with these projects were two additional large parking lot expansions and resurface projects.

Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch

The Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch provides mental health care for adolescents and children.  They relocated to a new campus in south Fargo.  MBN Engineering provided site development including grading, retention ponds, parking lots, roads, sidewalks and utilities.  The site was master planned for several buildings.  The first two buildings constructed on the site were the Education Center and the Residential Treatment Center.  The project involves devices that are vandal resistant.  The heating and cooling system are ground source heat pumps.   The electrical design included a generator, power distribution, lighting and controls, site lighting, access control, security and telecommunications.  For security reasons, the windows are tempered so they remain in the opening when they are broken.  The building includes an engineered smoke exhaust system as required by the building codes for windowless buildings.
