Becoming Lowman Walton Hall

Another historic renovation is in the books!

On Monday, November 7th, 2022,  Dickinson State University had their ribbon cutting ceremony for the newly renovated Lowman Walton Hall, formerly known as Pulver Hall.  The ribbon cutting ceremony was conducted by DSU President Steven Easton and Director of the TR Center, Christopher O’Brien.  Roers was the general contractor overseeing the complete interior renovation of this six-story building. 

Originally built in 1967, Pulver Hall was used as a male only dormitory, and in later years was repurposed into an office building and has been used as that ever since.  The new Lowman Walton Hall is now housing the Theodore Roosevelt Center, which does digitizing of the 26th President of the United States.  On the upper two levels of the building, there are suites that have been re-converted into modern dorm rooms to house students.

Introducing Our New Safety Manager!

How long have you been with Roers?
7 years

What positions have you held?
Carpenter, Lead carpenter, and Safety Manager, As well as being on the safety committee for 3 1/2 years straight.

Why are you passionate about safety in the workplace?
Safety is what keeps us happy and healthy, it lets us go home at the end of the day. It saves us money, and it proves that we are all in this together.

What opportunities do you see to maintain and better our safety stats?
I’d like to collect and analyze the data available to help pilot a proactive safety culture. When everyone understands and respects hazards and can speak up to and educate the ones less knowledgeable, we can cultivate a plan to remain efficient as well as safe.

How did you become involved in Safety at Roers?
had a minor jobsite incident that was less than serious, involving a forklift, but still required some action. I was placed on the safety committee at that point to help educate me on safety in the work place. Well, it worked! I really did pay attention and changed my attitude about safety, 3 years later I won the annual Safety Champion award. 8 months after that I was promoted to Safety Manager.

What is your favorite part of working for Roers in general and in your role?
Roers really does feel like a family, but I have to say the field and the office are more like cousins rather than siblings. I get to work with the entire family and would like to bridge the gap better to bring us closer together than ever before.

We are all excited to welcome Mack into his new role with Roers and can’t wait to see where he takes safety with the company!

Roers Announces Downtown Moorhead Development Project Plans

Moorhead’s downtown will be revitalized with expanded opportunities for lifestyle, diversity and a growing expressive culture. Roers has unveiled the initial concept plans for the Downtown Moorhead Development project, inspired by a vision of “More to Moorhead.” The reimagined downtown area is the steppingstone for the future growth and value of Moorhead.

Roers will oversee the planning and execution of the development, which may be upwards of nine city blocks. “Roers is investing in this project as we feel there is a fantastic opportunity for Moorhead, its business community, and its residents,” commented Jim Roers, CEO of Roers.   Roers will work with and bring on other developers to complete the project. “With a project of this magnitude, partnering with other developers in the community will bring new ideas and enhancements to the development. We have already held conversations with interested developers and welcome others to get involved,” said Roers. Roers is the lead developer of the project and is working with the City of Moorhead to establish design standards for the entire project. This will streamline the process for developers who want to be involved in the project.

Roers is partnering with JLG Architects and Stantec to help bring the vision to reality for the development. Building off of Moorhead’s Downtown Master Plan and Comprehensive plan, the design team has worked closely with stakeholders to set the framework for a development that would support the growth and continued prosperity of Moorhead. A vibrant downtown is the heartbeat of any thriving community. Great consideration has gone into developing an intentional master plan that can serve as a framework for development, with the goals of being fresh and exciting for Moorhead residents, as well as existing and new businesses. In the research for the Downtown Moorhead vision, the most common responses were the need for opportunities for Moorhead residents to live, work, and have entertainment options.  

Development Vision

Combining cultural architecture from Moorhead’s roots to all heritages represented in the community, JLG has designed the concept to be a place where people from all cultures can come together. The plan envisions place for people to live, work, shop, relax, learn and celebrate together. Incorporated green space will include water features tying in the connection to the riverfront, entertainment opportunities in an outdoor plaza area or street sections will add to the “gathering” atmosphere. Established museums and new opportunities for art, education and theater will provide a thriving cultural destination.  Unique local and global dining options will attract those visiting but also those living in the development. Housing options may range from rooftop patio condos, walk up townhomes or studio river view apartments. The Downtown Moorhead vision is to create a place where all people can see themselves.

Plans include multiple phases of the project. As the plans are still being finalized, the first phase may include four new buildings and will be located at the east end of the existing Moorhead Center Mall area. The second phase would be on the south section of the Moorhead Center Mall with new buildings added. Each of the spaces within the mall is privately owned, therefore Roers is working with each owner to understand their needs and opportunities for their businesses as part of the new development.  All businesses are welcome to be a part of the development and remain in downtown Moorhead. The City of Moorhead anticipates studying the renovation/relocation of City Hall, however no decision has been made.

“The plan captures a vibrant and inclusive vision for our downtown. It pays homage to the roots of the people of this region, while also creating space and opportunity for people to see themselves living, working, and playing in our downtown,” says Moorhead Mayor Shelly Carlson. “The City of Moorhead is excited to be part of this incredible redevelopment that will provide the catalyst Moorhead needs to ignite our downtown and create places filled with amazing experiences.”

Project Background

Roers and the City of Moorhead entered into a predevelopment agreement in 2019 with the option for Roers to purchase City-owned property. The partnership involved identifying redevelopment opportunities for the existing Moorhead City Hall (located at the 500 block of Center Avenue in Moorhead), Moorhead Center Mall and surrounding City-owned property. As part of the partnership, Roers and the City of Moorhead will focus on a development options mutually beneficial for all parties including the Moorhead Center Mall property owners, Downtown Moorhead Inc., residents, and business owners of Moorhead.

Roers is a Fargo-based development company specializing in development, construction, real estate and property management. Roers has a proven track record for building success in the communities we serve, and we can’t wait to take on this huge project with the help of other reputable companies in our area and the City of Moorhead.

Employee Picnic and All Company Meeting Recap – June 2022

employee picnic and all company meeting

It’s time to review the 2022 employee picnic and all company meeting we hosted June 23rd and 24th here in Fargo!

2022 Roers Employee Picnic Takes on Thunder Road!

Each summer, we host an employee picnic to get together our employees and their families from all over the state to enjoy an evening of food, fun and togetherness. This year was no different, but we did take a different approach than years past. Not only did our employees receive fun hats instead of our usual picnic tees, we decided to host this years’ employee picnic at Thunder Road in Fargo! 

Although the day was definitely a hot one, Thunder Road helped provide the entertainment. Our attendees were able to have fun on the go-karts and bumper cars, take a swing at the batting cages and mini golf course, and of course had access to the arcade games inside where it was nice and cool.

For food this year, Roers reached out and secured Twisted Spork. The local food truck vendor provided the option for a build your own burger, brats, and 3 different kinds of pizza for our employees and families to enjoy! They were able to set up right on site and stayed open to accommodate anyone who may have shown up a bit later in the evening.

Getting families together to experience an evening of fun and an opportunity for coworkers to socialize outside of the workplace is always so fun.

June All Company Meeting

Roers hosts an All Company Meeting once or twice a year. The meeting is a great way to get team members from all locations together in one place for an in-person update on all that’s going on within the company. This year, we hosted our summer meeting at the Clubhouse Hotel and Suites in Fargo with breakfast brought in by Porter Creek, located right next door. 

After enjoying some breakfast, we started the morning with our leadership team giving updates regarding each division of the company. We heard from our President and CEO, construction executives, CFO/COO regarding our property management, as well as a quick safety update and some HR reminders.  

The company update brought to light some new projects and development items that have been in progress behind the scenes that are going to be great for our community. Our construction team provided updates about projects that have recently been completed (ie. Medora Elevator, Pulver Hall, Touchmark at Harwood Grove), some projects that we are currently working on (ie. St Paul Newman Center), and the opportunity for projects in our near future located all over the state. The segment regarding property management highlighted the standings for our commercial and residential teams and recognized the great work happening within our property maintenance team as well. Our safety manager gave an update on where we are standing with incidents this year so far and HR talked about new hires that have joined our team as well as reminded everyone about a couple employee resources and incentives to take advantage of.

We finished the morning by having motivational speaker, Dawn Chisholm, come and speak to our team about the importance of safety in the workplace. It was a great presentation reminding us how a split second decision to not take the proper precautions can change our lives in the blink of an eye. 

Overall, we had a successful turnout and were able to hear about so many great things coming our way for the remainder of 2022! 

Roers is continuing to build success and stronger communities in everything we do!

The Road to Homeownership: 9 Steps to Success

In today’s market, there are many uncertainties with buying a home. When is the right time? Can I afford it? Is it the right move for me with my goals? It can be very stressful when determining what suits your needs and if buying a home is worth the investment in this market.  If you need a basis on where to start, take a look at the following nine steps: 

1. The Funds:

First off, it is crucial to get a handle on your finances. You’ll want to figure out what your income is, your expenses, and your credit level. Sometimes, reducing spending habits, even if only temporary, may be necessary in securing a mortgage on a home. Being open and honest with your realtor will give you the best start on your search and getting pre-approval from a lender will help you to know your budget and keep your search narrowed down. 

2. How Much Should You Put Down?

Figuring out how money you are willing or able to put towards the down payment is the next step. It is typical to put down at least 6% of your loan balance. However, the more you can put down the better! 

There are many advantages to putting 20% down on a home. This will allow a shorter loan payment period and save you thousands on interest fees as well as mortgage insurance premiums.

3. Choosing A Realtor

The road to owning a home, especially in the busy market today, is a daunting task. Finding a realtor with a proven track record is crucial to a smooth transaction. With Roers, we have the history and reputation proven to serve our clients with trust and dedication.

Our realtor, Anne Kallhoff, is very experienced with over 14 years of residential and commercial selling under her belt. She has sold over 500 homes and says that there is no such thing as a stress free home buying process. However, Anne says that going with an experienced realtor is the key to a low stress home buying process.

4. Decide Your Budget

As we all know, navigating the financial end of the buying process is unarguably the biggest concern of any real estate transaction. Luckily, our expertise has been proven to help our clients work out just how much they can afford. Many people typically decide to use 30% of their annual income towards buying a home. However, that can vary greatly depending on what your personal preferences are. 

For another bit of help on deciding your budget, check out this blog article with different items to think about when choosing your price range on your new home!

5. Finding The Perfect Home

 Now for the fun part! Looking for a house can be very fun. Envisioning your future can be very exciting. Just be sure to know your deal breakers, needs, and wants!

This will ensure a smooth process. Some things to consider are:

  • Number of Bedrooms
  • Number of Bathrooms
  • The Kitchen
  • Location of The Home
  • Amount of Acreage
  • Garage & Storage Space

These are some things that we believe most people consider the most when buying a home. As these take some futuristic planning to determine what will suit your needs for the years to come.

Anne Kallhoff: Roers Real Estate Agent

6. Submitting An Offer

 In this competitive market, submitting an offer is tough. You must assess what the home means to you as the seller is likely getting other offers. Roers will make this as stress-free as possible for you by negotiating the price and particulars of the deal through your approval. Anne Kallhoff (realtor) says that even in this crazy market, it is always wise to invest in real estate. With that said, it is currently smartest to make a fair offer initially.

7. Getting Your New Home Inspected And Appraised

Once your house is bought, it is important to get an expert opinion on the home. They will determine the exact value of your house and inspect the home for any damages or code violations. This is nothing to stress about, just a precautionary measure.

8. Closing

Congratulations! You’re officially a homeowner. During this stage, you’ll gain legal ownership of the house, sign paperwork, and get the keys. Now that the stressful part is done, the real work begins!

9. The Big Move

A very chaotic day, but very rewarding. It’s time to settle in, and enjoy your new home. Some tips for moving include:

  • Setting a budget
  • Get rid of items you wouldn’t buy again
  • Leave your clothes on their hangers
  • Find free packing supplies

Utilizing these tricks will help you save money and lead to a less stressful move!

It’s Time for Townhomes

Roers files permit application for Roosevelt Neighborhood Townhome Project 

Jim Roers, President of Roers Construction and Development, announced that Roers Construction filed an application for the building permit to construct seven townhomes on the block near the Newman Center Church and the View Apartment building in Fargo. 

“As we’ve promised the Roosevelt neighborhood from the beginning, we are committed to providing affordable living solutions as a part of this project that will welcome new families into the neighborhood.  Working through supply chain issues, construction delays, and cost increases that came about due to COVID, we have found a solution to ensure that these units remain reasonably priced for families and that we are able to construct them in an expeditious manner,” said Roers. 

Roers said that Roers Construction is prepared to break ground as soon as the building permit is approved and anticipates the townhomes will be ready for occupancy by the end of 2022.  As has been reported, this project represents the final phase of a multi-year project on the north Fargo site.  The townhomes represent the last $2,000,000 of the $50,000,000 total project budget. 

When it was originally approved by the City, it was estimated that the project would provide $9,000,000 of taxable value for the City, but even without the completed townhomes the project has already increased the taxable value to $10,700,000.  This value increase on this block will serve to reduce property tax burdens for citizens throughout the city. 

Roers is committed to working proactively with the City of Fargo on this project and in the future to better the community.

Check out the three projects below to see how this multi-property project all comes together!

St Paul Newman Center

ROERS POV: Missouri Slope From The Ground Up

Taking on Missouri Slope

“Every project comes with its own challenges, and Missouri Slope was the largest project I have taken on.  With the new opportunity, I was excited to start long before the project officially began.

Missouri Slope has an updated, unique design that centers around a “core” of the building for staff to serve the resident wings. In my mind I viewed it as five separate buildings, and would explain it as such to all subcontractors coming on-site, so they were not overwhelmed by the sheer size of this project.

We came in aggressive and self-performed the foundations for the first wing, this proved to be the most difficult wing on the project. It is the deepest area of the project, and there we discovered a vein of water that flows from that corner diagonally across the footprint of the building. During this portion, we were constantly working in the water.

After a month of excavation and forming, we had a snow event that drifted in over 6-feet of snow. I was hands on from the start, providing layout, tying rebar, building temporary access roads for ready mix trucks, and pouring. Whatever was needed to continue work was done.

The foundations are my favorite part of any project, and I’m thankful that we were able to make it past the various hurdles sent our way.

Once we were past the first wing, our foundation subcontractor came in with a small army of 18 men. As they progressed further into it, another dozen came in to start setting the steel and precast. It was great feeling to see a sizable crew join us and get after the project. Roers is a very hands on company, we self-perform from ground up. At first, it was difficult to let these guys run with it without comparing how we would typically approach tasks.

The plumber was the first individual on the job. He came on the project very early to start doing plan reviews and prefab in the basement of the existing building, where we had a great office space set up. Had he not been on-site I would’ve been the Lone Ranger for quite a while before more crews started showing up.”

Hitting the Pandemic

“I don’t like to go down the pandemic road, but how can you not address it. It was difficult, to say the least. Times were uncertain long before it reached the states. The state health department tried to close down the project site.  I had a feeling of pride that Roers was able to keep the project moving, keeping people at work. We were one of the few companies lucky enough to not go through a shut down, but others didn’t share the same view. People in the field wanted direction. They wanted answers, as did I, but no one had them at that time. We were all in tune with the hourly news with concerns of them closing state borders or interstate travel. It all seems so long ago, and ridiculous now, but the fear was real . The Covid task force Roers came up with was amazing and was able to calm everyone in such a short time. Knowing it’s being addressed at our top level of management eased the strain on everyone. I could go on with multiple stories of conversations, conflicts and incidents, but overall, Missouri Slope has been such a positive project and I don’t like to dwell on that era of the project.  However, it still had a tremendous impact on myself and the project overall.

I do have to mention one comical memory: While driving on the interstates, the rest areas were closed, but still they placed portable toilets out for travelers to use. It’s an example of how unprepared we all were for such a catastrophe.”

Coming to an End

“Looking back it seems every month brought a milestone, deadline, a new trade on-site, or unforeseen challenges, most often it was the weather.

I have worked with multiple subcontractors over the years, everyone involved in the field can attest to some of the difficulties some trades may bring with them .

At the end of Slope, I look back and can honestly say I have not worked with a better group of trades. 

I feel as though I’m making a large leap to the end here, but to sum it all up this has been one of the most gratifying projects I’ve been tasked with. Not just the project itself, but working alongside the team of individuals Roers put together to make it happen.”

-Philip Keller, Superintendent

Buying vs. Building – Roers Real Estate

Buying a home is a big step and can be overwhelming, whether you are a first-time homeowner or have gone through the process before. Roers Real Estate is here to help you with the purchase process. There are two options when it comes to choosing your home. You can search what it currently on the market, or you can look into the option of building a home custom for you. What steps should you take when purchasing a home? Is building or buying a better option for you?

We met with our Roers Real Estate agent, Anne Kallhoff, to ask her some questions to help you.

In general, what are the benefits of buying a home?

When you buy a home, your money is going toward equity in your home. When you rent, the money you are putting toward your rent each month, isn’t money you will ever get back. When you are paying toward a mortgage, you are building equity in your home and you will usually see a return when it comes time to sell your home. When you own a house, you also have the ability to make any changes you want (paint, flooring, remodeling, etc), and you can have pets if you choose without penalty.

What is the first step a person should take when they are thinking of buying a home?

I always tell my clients to meet with a lender in person or over the phone to get an idea of how much they can afford. This will help so they aren’t looking at homes out of their budget and will ensure they don’t miss out on features they could have that are within reach with their budget.

What are the benefits of building vs buying a home?

When building, you’ll see the same benefits as purchasing a house already listed on the market. In the building process, homes can be fully customized, you can choose finishes you want throughout your entire home and find or design a layout that works well for you. If you purchase one that is already on the market there are other benefits such as being in established neighborhoods, lower specials and character homes.

As far as price, is there a difference between building and buying?

The costs with building and buying can vary. One of the biggest benefits of buying is a tax abatement provided by the local cities. Depending on the builder you work with, the lending process can be quite different.  A construction loan has to be taken out by someone when building a home. Most of the time, the builder does this and you only have to take out a standard mortgage loan, but occasionally the builder will require you to take out the construction loan. When purchasing an existing home, you typically have to take out a standard mortgage loan. The specials can tend to be higher with new construction.

What is the average time to close when buying or building?

When you buy an existing home, you can typically close within 30 days pending appraisal and inspection. With new construction, you are looking at anywhere from 90 days to a year, depending on the builder and the level of customization.

Who can new homeowners contact to go through options?

A realtor and/or lender are the best people to contact first to start the home buying process. A lender can tell you how much you are pre-approved for, and a buyer’s agent is there to assist you, the buyer, with any questions regarding finding the right fit for your next home. 

We hope this information helps! Roers, Real Estate agent Anne Kallhoff is here for you with any questions.

Happy house hunting!

Decorating on a Budget

When living in an apartment, it can feel like you have limited options to personalize your space since you cannot make any drastic changes to the unit itself. There are many affordable ways to dress up your rental space and make it your own! Whether you are a fan of DIY projects, thrifting, or finding a great deal, read on to learn about some simple, budget-friendly decorating ideas to help infuse your own style and personality into your home.

Walls
Mirrors, wall decals and simple wall art pieces are all great options to decorate your space without the hassle of painting walls (if that is allowed at your apartment).

Mirrors are one of the easiest things you can put up in your space to change it up. Mirrors give the illusion of a larger and a brighter space.

Wall decals or removable wallpaper are great options for apartment living because they add some fun, without the potential for damaging your walls since they stick directly to the wall with no hardware required!

Canvas prints or other wall décor can easily be hung to create a statement wall. Whether you find a fun, cheap framed print, or you make some DIY wall art (Pinterest for the win), you can fill a wall easily with these items.

Windows and Lighting
Curtains are a great, inexpensive way, to dress up your space. With blinds usually being included in your unit, you can take it one step further by incorporating some curtains. Whether you use a funky pattern, or a neutral color, curtains can create a sense of warmth and add a cozy touch.

If you are looking for an opportunity to add some extra light, you can add a fun table or floor lamp anywhere in your apartment.  There is also the option of adding some accent lighting by finding some cheap, sticky LED lights on Amazon to mount under cabinets, in a bookcase, or anywhere else that could use some brightening up.

Floors and Furniture
Area rugs, runners and bathmats are all a renter’s best friend. These items protect your flooring, but they are also a great way to add some color and comfort into your space.

Buying multi use furniture is a great option to save some space, and some money. Whether it be an ottoman with storage, or a futon couch that doubles as a bed, multipurpose furniture helps to make the most out of the room you have.

Accessories

Throw pillows, blanket ladders and pottery and are all ways to accessorize your unit. Accessories can be moved from room to room and are easily changed out if you change your theme or color pallet.

Adding a houseplant is another great way to add some color and life to your apartment. Don’t have a green thumb? Luckily, there are many low maintenance houseplants out there, or you can go maintenance-free and get an artificial plant.

Where to buy furniture and décor?

There are so many options these days to take and upcycle used items, or to find new items cheap. Between Amazon, Target, thrift stores, and places like Facebook marketplace or Craigslist, you can furnish and decorate your home for less than ever before. Using a selling platform like Marketplace and Craigslist can also help you make some of your money back when you decide to redecorate.

You don’t have to spend your entire savings to make your space YOURS. These cheap tricks to dress up your space will help you go from drab to fab in no time!
