One Hundred Years of Building Excellence....that's the tradition behind out name.
George J. Grant, the founder of the construction company which still bears his name emigrated to St. Paul, MN from Nova Scotia in 1879. He had already been involved in the construction industry in Canada where he had built portions of the Canadian Pacific Railroad.
He had heard of a bustling city in Minnesota called St. Paul, which the efforts of pioneer businessmen like "Empire Builder" James J. Hill were turning into the rail center of the Northwest. He founded George J. Grant construction Co of Minnesota a year after he arrived. In the early months of 1880 and for the next forty four years he was involved in many of the major construction projects in the state of Minnesota. Many of the landmark buildings which Grants firm constructed still stand and are in full use today, symbols of his careful workmanship and attention to quality. George J. Grant died in 1924, while supervising the construction of the new St. Paul Assembly Plant for the Ford Motor Company, the largest manufacturing facility in the upper Midwest at the time.
The company bearing his name continued to prosper and grow after his death, the result of successors who shared his vision and his concern for the traditions of the building craft. Since 1980 and still today Grant construction is guided by Frank J. Rekuski, Jr. Like his predecessors who proudly served before him Frank carries on the tradition of careful workmanship and attention to quality. While strictly adhering to the rich traditions of the past, Grant Construction has also acknowledged change and evlolved to expand the offerings of Grant Construction to ensure it's clients satisfaction.
