Doran Construction Repeats as MCA’s General Contractor of the Year

At its Awards of Excellence gala on January 25, the Minnesota Construction Association (MCA), for the second consecutive year, honored Bloomington-based Doran Construction as General Contractor of the Year.

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 and mixed-use 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, project engineers, 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.”

Doran CEO of Construction and Architecture, Scott Stenman, who recently joined Doran after managing the design and construction of U.S. Bank Stadium for the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority and the Minnesota Vikings, observed that “to be honored by your industry competitors and colleagues two years running is an incredible accomplishment. This is a focused and talented group that has put together a very impressive string of projects and I am honored to be with them.”

Among Doran’s notable construction projects over the past two years are Alatus Development’s Latitude 45 and Sherman Associates’ The Encore—inspiring luxury apartment buildings located in the Downtown East and Mill Districts of Minneapolis. Others include the renovation and expansion of the historic Renaissance Depot Hotel in Minneapolis; the construction of Summit Management’s Bluestone Commons in Duluth that consisted of two luxury multi-family projects and the Shoppes of Bluestone; and two of Doran’s own multi-family development projects 610 West in Brooklyn Park and The Moline in Hopkins.
