Four Winds School

Four Winds Alternative & CTE High School

Fort Totten, ND


Electrical Construction: $495,000

Year Completed: 2017


The $3.5 million, 13,000 square foot building is the first "net zero" school on tribal land in the United States. Its energy efficiency partly comes from the 264 photovoltaic (solar) panels on its roof, solar tubes for free lighting, and its ground-source geothermal heating/cooling system.

NDSU Vet Lab

NDSU - Veterinary Diagnostic Lab

Fargo, ND

Year Completed: 2017


The new $18 million, 26,000 square foot NDSU Veterinary Diagnostic Lab is fully accredited by the American Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians. The lab is a full service laboratory offering toxicology, bacteriology, virology, molecular diagnostic, clinical and anatomic pathology, parasitology and serology testing services.

This unique 119,500 square foot collaborative learning center is the first of its kind in North Dakota. The state-of-the-art STEM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics) instructional building is a student-focused learning environment that consists of 23 collaborative work/study areas. It is estimated that 4,000 to 5,000 students will use the building daily.

Wilkerson Commons Dining Area

UND - Wilkerson Commons

Grand Forks, ND


Electrical Construction: $2.7 million

Year Completed: 2015


The $14 million renovation and addition to Wilkerson Dining Hall modernized the largest food service center at the University of North Dakota and created additional efficiencies. The redesign of the lower level also created a contemporary gathering space that provided meeting, study, and social spaces for students.

Barnes County North School

Leal, ND


Electrical Construction: $1.7 million

Year Completed: 2013


The Barnes County North School brought three existing schools under one roof in a new PreK-12 school located in rural Leal, ND. The 85,000 square foot facility was designed to handle up to 500 students, although it currently serves just over 300 students from a large, primarily rural, geographic area. The $14.5 million project also serves as a gathering place for the entire region and a source of pride for the communities. (Photo here and of classroom above, courtesy of JLG Architects)

Thief River Falls, ND


Electrical Construction: $1.8 million

Year Completed: 2013


The 12,000 square foot addition included a new commons area that joined two existing wings of the building. The project involved completely removing and replacing the two existing electrical services to the building. Bergstrom scheduled over 600 man-hours a week during the summer of 2012 to complete as much work as possible before school started.
