2017 Chapter Award Winners


The MN/ND ABC’s awards program was created to recognize members who are dedicated to improving their business, customer service and community through determination and hard work.  Members have been nominated by their peers and winners were selected by the Business Development Committee using specific criteria for the following categories:

2017 Construction Company of the Year - Nor-Son, Inc.  

Nor-Son has completed over 3,500 projects since our inception in 1978 and it is difficult to choose just one. We have been honored to have received a total of 38 national awards from the Associated Builders and Contractors, 20 of which were Eagle Awards, for both residential and commercial projects. Some of the highlights have been helping Madden’s Resort get their Voyageur Townhomes back in business after the 2015 storm and building an operating suite beneath a fully functioning hospital for the Cuyuna Regional Medical Center. Other projects oftentimes are not always in the spotlight, but are equally important to us such as a new facility we built for MN Teen Challenge, or a renovation for Lake Area Pregnancy Support. Those projects, in addition to the numerous private lake homes and estates we have built, are truly special. The employees of Nor-Son feel most rewarded when we fulfill our client’s dreams. 

Our philosophy is to interpret needs, deliver experiences and create environments that enhance how people live and work. We believe this in both our work and personal lives. The employees of Nor-Son are united around a common vision to shape the future successes of ourselves, our co-workers, our company, our clients, and community. Our, mission, values and key strategies are clearly defined and reinforced every day.
