Quarterly Recap!

This quarter we are featuring roers construction team from the east and the west to talk about how 2023 went and what they are looking forward to in 2024!

TOP 5: Updates from Q4

1. ACM & Holiday Party Recap

To finish off a successful 2023, Roers hosted an All Company Meeting the same day as our holiday party. We had a great afternoon filling the entire company in on all happenings across divisions. We heard from all of leadership regarding where we are with construction updates, property management, the new Metropolitan, and some new development items!
We then followed that with a fun evening at the holiday party! Great food, a hypnotist, games and prizes galore! The theme this year was “Christmas Movies” and employees were encouraged to dress in theme! Characters from popular christmas movies were all over our party with a couple costume contest winners.
It’s always so fun getting employees from all over the state together for a day of Roers team bonding.

2. RCC: Milton Earl Receives co

The Milton Earl Apartments will create an affordable downtown living community for seniors within close proximity to medical services, recreation, dining, banking, and more. An L-shaped floor plan provides 3 stories of residential living for 42 residents and wraps around a roof-top patio located above a grade-level indoor parking garage. A community room with views to the beautiful Sanctuary Event Center is situated along 4th Avenue and 7th Street, where seniors can watch street-side passersby.
Although we are still putting finishing touches on the building, we are so excited for the future of downtown Fargo. 

3. RW: Burning Hills Amphitheatre Elevator Access Project Wins NDRM & CPA Gold Star Award

The Medora Elevator was one of Roers most unique projects, completed in the spring of 2022. The goal of the elevator was to improve accessibility of the amphitheater and make it easier for anyone to attend a musical or another event. 

” The project, recognized as the top project in the Commercial Category, was presented with the award at the NDRM&CPA 58th Annual Convention in Dickinson, ND on Thursday, January 11, 2024.”.

4. RPM: The metropolitan look & feel

As seen at the 2023 All Company Meeting, the look and feel of the new addition of The Metroplitan can be seen here. The addition will consist of 150+ new upscale apartment units plus great amenities including a clubhouse, a 2-story fitness center with a relaxation room, an indoor kids play area, and more!

The first phase is set to open June 2024, amenity spaces by July, and phase II is set to open by August. 

5. Rick's Retirement

After 45 years of helping Roers build success, VP of Field Operations, Rick Roers, retired December 2023. Of course we couldn’t let him go without throwing him a party to celebrate all of his past successes and help get him ready to enjoy retirement.

We hosted a couple hundred of his close family, friends, acquaintances, past coworkers and more. Every person in attendance was there to celebrate Rick. Opportunity was given to speak on experiences with him and so many great stories were told.

Thanks again, Rick! Enjoy retirement!

Q4 peer recognition award winners

Brian Bjerklie

Roers Construction



This employee has had Roers' back for more than a decade. You will never catch Brian not wearing his hi-vis clothing on-site, which says he goes above and beyond the required PPE policy that Roers has in place. Brian has been the guard rail installer for years on our big projects, and you. can always count on them to be up to code without rechecking his work. There is no telling how many lives he has saved over the years due to his consistent safety rail installation. He. is certainly not afraid to speak up on safety issues or any others for that matter.

Rick Roers

Jason has been a tremendous asset to the property management team in more areas than just Dickinson. He has taken on commercial space on the other side of the state when needed, fulfilled all maintenance requests in a timely manner serving our residents, all while having a good attitude. His problem solving skills and reliability have been crucial in our ability as a team to successfully complete work with minimal direction needed.
Mataya has taken on a significant amount of workload and responsibility with the day-to-day accounting of so many of Roers main operating entities, along with all of Roers investment entities as well as 3rd party properties managed over the past year. Mataya has shown great passion to learn and grow within her own knowledge and skill set, but also taken it upon herself to make sure that the accounting and support is there for the operational teams if they have any questions or need assistance. Mataya has provided myself with a significant amount of comfort in training and teaching me the property management side, as well as the trust that I can instill in her to get the job done and done correctly. She is a great asset to the accounting team, property management team, and the entire entity as a whole.
You would think that Dickie has his PPE glued into position, as they are always on. He has been seen speaking safety to his coworkers and speaks up when hazards are present. It's truly a victory when an employee puts thought into safety instead of being complacent like Dickie does.
Lois has taught me so many opportunities to learn throughout the construction side of Roers. The knowledge that she holds and to teach others about it is remarkable. There are days that I am in awe because it's the little things she knows that most people do not think of. She is patient, sweet, and a beautiful person through and through. Without her, I do not think I would not know much about the Construction side of Roers and all the paperwork that is needed! She is always teaching me to do the right thing, not only with my work but with some other parts of life. If you do not know Lois, then you need to. She is truly a remarkable woman. Without Lois, I would not have grown to who I am within Roers. Plus, who doesn't enjoy her sense of humor?!
Last week Micah found that one of the local churches were up for sale and he had some friends that attended that church so he made some calls to make a connection. With that connection he got an opportunity to line up a meeting with the church leadership to better understand what their future plans were. He go us on a call with the leadership only to find that they own land for their future home, they are financially strong and they are looking to partner with a team like Roers. The meeting was great and we hope that this can be a future project we can land! Great work Micah!
Ivy is always willing to lend a hand. If anyone needs anything, she is right there to help. She will step in and help on any random task and Ivy helps build a stronger team in the Roers West office. She takes on any and all accounting question or task without hesitation even if she does not know how to solve the problem. She will find a way to get the answers. She is also a watchdog for financial issues or discrepancies and also help deflect certain situations such as sales people walking in the door. She does a great job in all that she does. I never get attitude or pushback from Ivy. Thank you Ivy!
