D.H. Blattner & Sons team members share a common goal: understanding their clients’ business and collaborating with them to provide quality solutions on time, on budget and with no surprises.

Founded in 1907, D.H. Blattner & Sons is a heavy civil contractor and construction manager that delivers collaborative construction solutions to industry leaders throughout the United States. David Henry Blattner began conducting business as D.H. Blattner & Co., Railway Contractors. He and his crew earned a reputation for quality and innovative work as they helped build James J. Hill’s Great Northern Railroad.
Four generations and more than a century later, D.H Blattner & Sons has developed and capitalized on its expertise to become a leader in multiple areas of construction. Today, they focus on the needs of the heavy civil construction market while their sister entity, Blattner Energy, Inc., delivers construction solutions to owners and developers in the renewable energy market.
D.H. Blattner & Sons has expanded and diversified, faced obstacles and celebrated success, but one thing hasn’t changed: their reputation. D.H. Blattner & Sons remains a privately-held company dedicated to quality, innovation and superior client satisfaction.
D.H. Blattner & Sons’ ability to plan and execute tough logistical projects led to work at many of the most isolated mining camps in the country. At the Illinois Creek mine in Alaska’s interior, D.H. Blattner & Sons successfully coordinated a cross country journey for upwards of 600 tons of mining equipment. The equipment was first transported by rail to Alaska from Minnesota, New Mexico and Idaho. On arrival, it was broken down into plane-sized parts and transported 450 miles on a Yukon River barge. Finally, it was delivered by plane to the mining site for reassembly.
The Illinois Creek Project was what the company began to refer to as a “Blattner-type job.” Company President, Scott Blattner, explained: “We’d go anywhere and do anything. If it was impossible, yes, that was a Blattner-type job.”
For more than a century, the Blattner Family of Companies has delivered collaborative construction solutions to industry leaders throughout the United States and Canada. Today, as a diversified electrical generation contractor, Blattner Energy delivers construction solutions within the renewable energy industry. Their collaborative culture and safe working environment enables their teams to complete projects of all scopes and sizes.
