Quarter 3 | 2022
TOP 5: Updates from Q3
1. downtown moorhead development
2. rpm turnover recap
Here’s a recap from Fargo RPM General Manager, Lindsey O’Driscoll regarding how this year’s turnover went!
“We had a successful turnover 2022. We turned a total of 85 units and our team kicked butt by working together to complete our maintenance, cleaning, painting, carpet cleaning and moving them all in within 48 hours. We could not have done it from the extra hands of all our internal staff that volunteered to help. We had very happy residents and parents as they moved in and we are looking for forward to a successful 2022-2023 leasing year!”
3. honduras crew joins the team
This quarter, Roers welcomed some help from Honduras to the construction team! RCC and the property management team worked together to get housing set up and Property Ambassador, Alicia Sandoval-Del Rio, assisted with translating.
These guys have been a great addition to the Roers team and we are excited to continue to work with them going into this next quarter.
4. ywca lantern lights project awarded
This project is the renovation of an existing facility into a 23-unit affordable, supportive housing facility. The project also includes office and meeting spaces, a parking lot expansion, and a new storm water system.

You can select YWCA Cass Clay as your favorite charity on smile.amazon.com and Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases every time you shop.
You can read about this project on our site HERE.
5. medora elevator goes live
The Medora experience is something that is meant to be enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities. Access Medora is an ongoing initiative to improve accessibility all over Medora. Our greatest opportunity to make an impact is at the Burning Hills Amphitheatre, where we constructed a high-capacity elevator that can transport guests who are in need of extra assistance, instead of being shuttled up and down the winding walking path. This option is going to make their experience fast, safe, and efficient. The Roers team worked hard to complete this project by this summer of 2022, so that guests were able to have an even better experience at the Medora Amphitheatre.

get to know him:
1. Introduce yourself (Name, Title, and Length of Time with Roers):
-Dustin Fischer, Project Manager, I have been with Roers for 3 years.
2. What does a day in your role entail?
-Generally, my day starts out with a quick talk about safety and what the plan for the day is. If we have multiple jobs going at the same time I make my rounds early in the morning to make sure everyone is on task. From there I pick a site that needs an extra hand and do what I can do to help out, well at least until the phone rings.
3. What is your favorite core value and why?
-I’d have to say Opportunity. Since I’ve started at Roers the opportunities have been endless. If you’re willing to work hard and put the time in, more opportunities always present themselves.
4. What is a fun fact about you outside of work?
-One fun fact is that I challenged myself to go camping at least 6 times this year, and I’m proud to say that labor day will be the 6th time for the summer, and I’m hoping to get one more trip in.
5. Last but not least, what is your favorite part of your position or working for Roers?
-I would have to say the challenge. Everyday and every phone call there are new challenges. it could be anything from a warranty issue on a prior project or another superintendent needing a few guys sent their way to rally and help out. The best part is having the TEAM needed to tackle any of these challenges that come our way during the day.
Q3 peer recognition award winners
Mack has done a wonderful job jumping into the Safety Manager roll. You can tell he is passionate about the safety of all Roers employees. He is willing to listen to plans and ideas, and is thinking of new strategies to make people more involved. He truly seems to want to do what is best for the company, is a team player and is dedicated to the team. As he has spent more time in the office, its been great to watch him take the opportunity to learn as much as he can about this new position and he is always respectful to those around him. It will be exciting to see where he is going to take safety in the future with Roers!
Alicia Sandoval-Del Rio
Alicia was instrumental in assisting RCC when the H2B employees arrived from Honduras. She shows core values of partnership and expertise with her bilingual ability and willingness to travel on a couple occasions to Minneapolis to pick them up, help with their apartments, make phone calls to Honduras before they came, going to the social security office, and just being a good partner in crime through it all. It was great not only working with her, but also getting to know her better. She will be a star in whatever she does in the future!
Sammy always does a great job on taking on projects and helping multiple team members/departments when needed. She manages her time to be effective and productive. She is willing to help cover wherever needed and does a lot of tasks that help alleviate the tasks on others plates. She always has a smiling face and a kind work to greet people. Her friendly, positive attitude doesn’t go unnoticed and is a great first impression for Roers to have.
Jeff is a notable safe employee. He follows the rules and understands shy they are in place. He’s not too proud to assess the risks and complete the task with the safest approach. When he’s operating equipment, the crew trusts him. Fear isn’t present when he’s at the controls, because the team knows he’s got their safety in mind.
