Knutson Construction

Together we make dreams real

The past few years have definitely been times of uncertainty, but Knutson Construction has been proud to continue delivering on our promise to “create certainty every step of the way.”

As we close out our 110th year and move into 2022 with a new president at the helm, we continue to get things done and have fun.

Driven by our values


We encourage the constant exchange of ideas and information. We respect and trust each other.

  • We made sure our crews returned home safe every night.
  • Formed a women’s employee resource group
  • Continued our work with our diversity, equity, and inclusion group


We take time to appreciate people. We acknowledge the efforts and achievements of all.

  • Promoted 26 people

  • Hired 84 people

  • Revamped our Team Blue Newsletter


We treat your project as our project. We put our personal stamp on everything we do.

  • Started 355 projects

  • Performed projects ranging from $50k to over $100M

  • Continue to self-perform concrete, masonry and carpentry across the region


We actively seek and support new ideas and continuous learning. We challenge ourselves in the pursuit of excellence and new technology.

  • It took innovation and continuous learning to respond to pandemic-related challenges. We worked from home, from the office, the jobsite—you get the idea.

  • We also pursued excellence and innovation by investing in ourselves:
    • New office in Mankato

    • Remodeled Cedar Rapids and Rochester offices

    • Bought a yard

    • 9 new drone pilots licensed


We promote a positive environment. We celebrate accomplishments.

  • Gave back to the communities we live, work and play in through volunteering, in-kind and monetary donations.

  • Said “You’re on mute” hundreds of times

  • Held team building events like a Valleyfair outing and summer picnic


We do the right thing. We follow through on our promises.

  • Most importantly, we deliver on the Knutson Experience: to make our owners, design partners, subcontractors, and employees feel assured, inspired, and appreciated.

From NHL goalie to our newest president

We’re thrilled to have John C. Curry as our company president. The third generation of the Curry family to lead the company, he started as an intern and laborer back in the day, then rejoined in 2015 after a career in professional hockey.

We have every confidence that John’s personality, leadership, and unique perspective will help us take the Knutson Experience to even greater heights as we work together to make dreams real.
