Burns & McDonnell has a longstanding history in the Twin Ports, the Iron Range and the Arrowhead Region. More than 100 years ago, our design professionals developed municipal water infrastructure solutions in the cities of Virginia and Hibbing as they prepared for the boom of the mining industry. Later, in the 1920s, engineers that would become part of our Transportation Group helped to convert the bridge in the Duluth Harbor from its former trolley configuration to the iconic lift bridge that exists today.
We continue to support important key regional clients such as Minnesota Power, Husky Energy, the City of Duluth, the Duluth Airport, Cirrus, ALLETE Clean Energy, Enbridge and the Minnesota Air National Guard's 148th Fighter Wing.
The office specializes in:
- Coastal and harbor facilities
- Oil and gas pipelines and terminals
- Process and manufacturing
- Energy generation and transmission
- Water and wastewater
- Design-build and EPC services
