We are proud to be a family-owned firm, where generations of McGoughs have learned the trade from the ground up and led with a strong sense of values and integrity. We see our employees as extended members of the family and treat them that way. It’s the way Peter McGough wanted things when he founded our business, and his commitment to quality, honesty and doing the right thing lives on today.
In those early years we laid the foundation of the reputation we enjoy today: a legacy of collaboration, integrity, craftsmanship, and delivering on what we promise. One of our first projects was one of our proudest: St. John’s Abbey in Collegeville, Minnesota, still hailed as an engineering and construction marvel.
A Premier Minnesota Builder
In the decades that followed, McGough grew to become one of the largest and most admired construction firms in Minnesota and nearby communities. We built relationships with most of the state’s Fortune 500 companies and became known for our work on corporate campuses and office buildings for companies like General Mills, UnitedHealth Group, 3M, CHS, Ecolab and many more.
Along the way, we became a go-to builder of many of the state’s leading colleges and universities, public buildings, fine arts and performance centers and worship spaces. We also mastered the complex requirements needed to build science facilities, hospitals and clinics.
As we continue to focus and sharpen our skills in high-profile and complex work, including semiconductor factories, agricultural processing plants, labs, power generation and distribution and more, we’ve found success executing work around the country at an extremely high level for nationally-known clients.
