Bill Brodeur founded Diversified Contractors, Inc, in Grand Forks, ND, in 1987 with nothing more than $1340 in the bank, a Chevy S-10 pickup with a loan on it, and a used Skill saw.  Working 7 days and 80+ hours a week, Bill was able to grow the company at a rapid pace. Within the first year, Diversified Contractors welcomed Mark Hart to the team who brought with him the supervisor on site technical skills crucial to the growth of DC.
By 1994, we grew to an office staff of 6. At this time, one of our largest clients presented Bill with an opportunity in Fargo that would be the catalyst to eventually open up a second location. Bill managed a large number of projects for this client while Mark continued supervising the work in Grand Forks.
In 1996 Bill officially opened the Fargo office and Diversified Contractors Fargo was born. The first year in Fargo, DC experienced rapid growth, and Bill’s connections from his previous two years with his Fargo client helped him open many doors and grow very quickly.

With the flood of ’97 came a flood of work. DC growth exploded to a President, 3 project managers, 7 project supervisors, an accountant, an office assistant, a concrete division, 50 carpenters and laborers. During this time, DC built and remodeled homes, commercial remodeling, new agricultural buildings including a riding arena and a 5000 Sow – farrow to wean hog facility, new apartment buildings, apartment remodeling, institutional build and remodel work, and commercial building tenant fit-up in 7 states.
2001 By 2001 Bill refocused on what DC did best, and found the perfect size and the best people. 2001 to 2008 DC focused 100% on light commercial buildings and commercial remodeling. Bill Brodeur did all project management and Gini Aananson ran the office and assisted Bill. Since 2001 DC has become the premier light commercial and commercial remodeler in the Fargo and Grand Forks areas.
Today DC operates under a clear set of business principles and processes having seen continued and steady growth. DC has put systems in place to operate all areas of its business. Our team follows a strict set of project management processes that produces  efficient and successful results.  At the beginning of 2016 we moved into our current location that has enough space to expand for future growth.
