This fall, Mead & Hunt, Inc. officially entered the North Dakota aviation market opening offices in Fargo and Bismarck. Jon Scraper and Jeff Klein will lead aviation consulting services in North Dakota. The new locations will expand Mead & Hunt’s geographic reach and allows the firm to provide local service to North Dakota airports. The firm’s aviation services include airport planning, engineering, environmental planning, architecture, construction administration and air service consulting.
Both Jon Scraper and Jeff Klein have more than 15 years experience providing engineering consulting services to general aviation and commercial service airports across North Dakota and Minnesota. The new office locations will allow them to continue their work and maintain a local presence in North Dakota with the added benefit of Mead & Hunt’s nationwide network. Mead & Hunt currently provides planning, air service, and most recently, state aviation system planning in North Dakota.
“Mead & Hunt’s entrance into North Dakota was a direct response to the need for infrastructure improvements in the state due to the healthy North Dakota economy. We saw a need and knew we had the expertise,” said Ron Engel, Vice President and leader of Mead & Hunt’s aviation group. “With our presence throughout the Midwest, this expansion just made sense. We are thrilled to now be a part of the North Dakota aviation community.”
Mead & Hunt is also providing transportation infrastructure services in North Dakota and is looking to add staff in this area.
Mead & Hunt provides professional services in architecture, engineering, planning, and historic preservation to diverse markets including aviation, dams and hydropower, education, food processing, industrial, military, municipal infrastructure, energy, transportation and water resources throughout the US.
The employee-owned corporation with more than 25 offices nationwide remains strong on Engineering News Record’s Top 500 design firm list with a national ranking of 155 in 2013. Mead & Hunt was named by CE News as one of the top 10 engineering companies to work for in the nation.
