Our Company

Nelson-Rudie is a 100% employee-owned consulting engineering firm offering structural, mechanical, electrical and refrigeration services to public and private clients throughout the United States and Canada. Our clients are architects, building owners, developers and general contractors. We have built a solid foundation having worked on nearly all building and project types varying in size and complexity. From ice rinks and aquatic facilities, to medical clinics and senior housing campuses, to retail stores and office buildings, you’ll find evidence of our work across the country.

Our services are provided primarily for conventional design-bid-build and design-assist project delivery. We have extensive experience working with owners and architects on prototypical projects including well-known, national retail and grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants and convenience stores with gas stations. Our focus is to build exceptional teams to deliver our clients projects that are seamless, on time and on budget. We are service-oriented, offering the personal involvement of our principals on every project.

Nelson-Rudie was founded by Dennis Nelson and Scott Rudie in 1976. Today, our Minneapolis-based company has grown to more than 55 employee owners with professional engineers registered/licensed in all 50 states, District of Columbia and five Canadian provinces, and is committed to successful collaborations with our clients.
