We’re proud of our work

Without projects, there would obviously be no KLE. We’ve been fortunate enough to build some awesome projects like gas plants, wind farms, new airports, landfills, and city roads. No two projects are the same, which is what makes our line of work so challenging and fulfilling. Building in North Dakota and Montana isn’t always the most straightforward, but the KLE team has figured out ways to build each of these jobs exactly as called for.

Williston Basin International Airport

KLE helped build this brand-new airport, which opened in October 2019. We handled five phases of this project, including runways, taxiways, the general aviation apron, commercial service apron, parking lots, and a rental car facility. Other than the scope of the project, a difficult portion of this job was how perfect the grade needs to […]

FedEx Distribution Facilities (Air and Ground)

Over the course of several years, we performed all earthwork, underground utilities, site concrete, and building foundation work for two FedEx distribution facilities in Williston, ND. We completed work on the Ground facility in 2013, and finished the Air facility in 2017. This was another job where North Dakota’s harsh winter weather played a significant […]

Pipelines and Water Storage Facilities

When you’re building pipeline in North Dakota, winter weather has the potential to change your plans in a big hurry. On this project, construction ran into the winter months, and we had to build some of the pipeline in below-zero temperatures with snow piling up. In order to fuse together the HDPE pipe, which requires […]

The culvert was in six 8’x10’ sections that each weighed 45,000 pounds each, and stretched for 200 feet. What made this job a bit tricky was that the city wanted us […]
