Community Connections

From its early beginnings, Mortenson has been a strong supporter of the communities we serve. Our team members approach each community with a commitment to reinforce Mortenson’s core values of trust, responsibility, safety, teamwork, service and stewardship.

Mortenson connects with communities through education and outreach, sponsorships, fundraising efforts and by spending locally where our projects are located. Our team members truly believe in serving the customer’s interests and building strong, enduring partnerships with each project’s owner, land owners, designers, engineers, subcontractors and the community. We believe there is a direct relationship between a project’s success and strong community engagement. It is this high level of commitment that distinguishes Mortenson within the industry and allows us to deliver a building experience that is superior to any other.
