After a year and a half of planning, Ebert Construction broke ground on a new campus for Randy’s Environmental Services in May. Located off U.S. Highway 12 in Delano, Minnesota, it’s the first project in the city’s new industrial park.
The campus will consist of a 20,870 square foot main office building as well as a 46,500 square foot support building for operations such as welding and a mechanics bay. The project is slated for completion in January of 2020.
“Randy’s has seen incredible growth over the years and outgrew their current office,” said Ebert Construction Vice President Markus Ebert. “In addition to their current facility in Delano, they’ll house their base office at the new nine-acre campus. It’s big for the city to have such a great business like Randy’s anchored there.”
While the project is a major upgrade for Randy’s, it also paints a much bigger picture: a significant milestone in the relationship between Ebert Construction and Randy’s.
History of Success and Growth – Together
The customer relationship between the two companies spans 15 years. Ebert uses Randy’s commercial dumpster services for their construction sites, and Randy’s works with Ebert for commercial construction projects.
Over the years, the two companies have grown and supported each other, leading up to this monumental project in their shared history.
“This project really showcases how we’ve grown together,” says Ebert. “It involves services Ebert Construction wouldn’t have been able to provide fifteen years ago, and definitely not on this scale. It’s really cool that while Randy’s has grown too big for their home office, we’ve grown enough to be able to build them a new one.”
Building the new campus for Randy’s Environmental Services primarily utilizes our design/build service as well as project management, carpentry, and concrete services. Additionally, our development division works with cities to obtain necessary approvals for building on the site.

Recent trends in the Twin Cities real estate market and throughout Minnesota show that more people are choosing to stay in apartments over purchasing a home, resulting in a record number of new market-rate rentals in 2018. “The Twin Cities remains woefully short of the levels of new housing production needed to satisfy the demands of a growing population,” an article by the StarTribune reports. In response to this significant growth, Ebert Construction has expanded our commercial construction services to include multi-family housing. Although new to Ebert Construction, the team we’ve put together to build and grow this division has decades’ worth of experience in the multi-family housing construction industry.
Jake Ullery, who leads the division, got his start in the construction industry at Ebert Construction. He rejoined the team in January of 2018 after ten years in the multi-family housing industry, bringing with him experience, knowledge, and established relationships with key industry leaders.
“Multi-family housing is a good fit for Ebert,” Ullery stated. “We’re an experienced general contractor. We’ve been around for decades, and we’ve got the right staff on board – the right project managers and superintendents who’ve been doing this kind of work for a long time.”
Currently, Ebert Construction has two multi-family housing construction projects underway.
The Heights, located in Mendota Heights, Minnesota, will offer 70 market-rate units (one-bedroom, one-bedroom plus den, and two-bedroom). Currently in the framing stage, the three-story building is slated to open in August 2019. A second phase of the project, with an additional 70 units, will begin in the spring of 2019.
A second multi-family project, scheduled to open in December of 2019, is under construction in Robbinsdale, Minnesota. Birdtown Flats will accommodate 152 units above two levels of precast parking. Featuring four levels, a rooftop party deck, and high-end finishes, Birdtown Flats offers a mix of unit sizes at market rate.
