BISMARCK, N.D. • KLJ Engineering LLC has added Zillgitt Civil Design to the KLJ team.
Bringing nearly two decades of civil engineering and survey experience, the addition of Zillgitt Civil Design creates opportunities for the two firms to come together and further partner with communities by engineering progressive infrastructure throughout southeastern Minnesota.
Under the KLJ name, the Zillgitt team will continue to serve its existing clients, while bringing the additional resources of KLJ, which has more than 500 employees across multiple states.
“We are excited to add the Zillgitt team to KLJ,” Mark Anderson, vice president of environment and public works division, said when announcing the addition. “Their dedication to clients, communities, and quality project work fits the KLJ model perfectly, and we look forward to working together.”
Mike Zillgitt, president of Zillgitt Civil Design, added: “It was an easy decision to come together as one team. We have a history of working together in various capacities, and we know our cultures, technical capabilities, and energy will help advance infrastructure projects across southeastern Minnesota.”
KLJ said it plans to continue operating out of Zillgitt’s current office, located at 671 West 1st St., Zumbrota, Minn., which recently moved from a previous location in Pine Island, Minn.
This brings the number of Minnesota offices for KLJ to three, with the other two located in St. Paul and Brainerd, and KLJ's total office locations to 23 across the central and upper Midwest.
Zillgitt Civil Design, founded in 2014, focuses on public infrastructure and land development engineering and survey services to cities, counties, and developers across Minnesota.
“When we started Zillgitt, our goal was to create close partnerships, clear communication, and practical solutions through high-quality work, said founder Mike Zillgitt. “These have been our core principles and pair well with the values of integrity, community, and trust with KLJ. We are looking forward to continuing to grow and serve the communities of Minnesota.”
