Building for Future Community Developers

Eighth grade students at Horizon Middle School in Moorhead had an opportunity to learn about city development – from the bare land to a prospering community on the grow. David Wood, Construction Exectutive at Roers, took part in the event along with Kristie Leshovsky, the City of Moorhead’s Community Development Director. David informed the students about this history of Roers and our core values. He went into depth of how the development and construction teams work together at Roers on opportunities. When the vision is initiated the development team works with architects, engineers and project owners to start get the project started and bring the vision into fruition until the construction begins. When the groundbreaking for a project is held, then the construction team takes on the next phase of the project with the development team still helping provide guidance along the way.Working with the students to understand the various processes, has been something Horizon Middle School has done for a few years. Its a great opportunity to enlighten students on the many career options in city development, land development, construction and commercial property management. We are pleased to be able to take part in activities such as this in the community.Our core values help define who we are and what we do. This is an excellent example of living our core value, expertise. Enteracting with students to share the Roers story and how we have excelled in the industry is just part of the message shared. David was able to explain how we are a full-service firm. We can take on a project from conception to completion with great success for everyone involved.To find out more about Roers and our core values, please us online
