COVID-19 Update: All ongoing projects remain active with precautions in place according to OSHA and CDC guidelines. Staff across our five offices are staying safe by working remotely or by wearing masks and practicing social distancing while working on-site.

The design-build competition for the Mail Processing Center / Main Post Office in Grand Forks presented a major challenge: to design and build a dignified mail facility within a 210-day completion schedule through a North Dakota winter.

The Korte Company was awarded the contract based upon the design solution, price and the overall ability to meet the schedule.

The design incorporated a pre-engineered building with a standing seam metal roof at the main entrance and the retail section.

The blue metal roof and fascia panels were added to the lower building scale. The result was a high quality design solution that reflected the image of the Post Office.
