February 02, 2016

At its Awards of Excellence gala on January 27 at the Minneapolis Golf Club, the Minnesota Construction Association (MCA) honored Bloomington-based Doran Construction as General Contractor of the year for 2015.

In presenting the award, the MCA recognized Doran Construction’s rapid growth in the industry and its stellar reputation for excellence in building large multi-family residential projects in the Twin Cities market.

Kelly Doran, owner and founder of the Bloomington-based company gave credit to “an outstanding team of leaders and an extremely talented group of project managers, construction superintendents and administrative staff.  We all know that success doesn’t come easy, so this honor is about people working very hard, with a passion for quality and paying great attention to detail.”

Scott Casanova, Senior Vice President of Construction, noted that since 2010 Doran has built over 20 multi-family and mixed use projects. “While we are very proud of our record building multi-family, our crews are very good at construction in general.  For us, it’s about staying ahead of the curve and serving our customers. Whether a project is big or small—retail, multi-family or office—we go at it with integrity and a proven process for success.”

Casanova pointed to the company’s recent completion of Latitude 45, a 13-story 319-unit Class A Market Rate apartment project developed by Alatus and located on Washington Avenue South in Downtown Minneapolis. “This was a 409,000 square foot post-tension concrete structure that we completed under budget and ahead of schedule—that’s something to be proud of.”
