We've been working in the public sector for a long time. Our portfolio of completed projects ranges from street reconstructions in cities across Minnesota to culvert installations in Western North Dakota.  As a prime or subcontractor we have the experience and resources to complete all types of projects in the public


We offer a variety of services to commercial construction projects. Foundation excavation and backfilling, parking lot grading, utility installation, pond excavation, building demolition and clearing and grubbing are just a short list of the things we can do on your project.  Call us today to see how we can meet your needs.


As licensed septic system installers, we've helped homeowners with their system needs since our start. We also dig and backfill basements, build driveways, grade shed pads, deliver sand and gravel and restore shorelines.  Whatever the need you may have on your property, we can help.


Asphalt reclamation is a process that recycles existing pavement and a portion of it's base to create a product that can be paved over.  In grade change situations the material can be easily stockpiled and reused in lieu of hauling in new gravel.  We also have the capability to perfrom soil stabilization.  This method adds strength to almost any soil my mixing in a stabilizing agent, greatly reducing the need for subcutting.  

Material Sales & Delivery

We currently have crushed concrete and asphalt for sale.  We also deliver gravel, pit run, crushed granite, washed sand, black dirt and many other materials.  Our trucks deliver across Central Minnesota.  Please contact us for pricing and availability. 


In need of some extra cash to support his young family in 1986, Craig Bardson started a part time business with a tractor backhoe and dump truck.   Now, over 30 years later the small residential excavation company has evolved into a diversified excavating, grading and reclamation/stabilization contractor.  Today, you will find us on a highway in North Dakota, a new building site in the Twin Cities, or just as Craig did at our start; a septic system in Central Minnesota.   Whether you are looking for a estimate for a new septic system or grading a new commercial site, please give us a call.  We'd be more than happy to provide a free quote.
