West Fargo-Lexstar Development and Construction broke ground Tuesday November 6 on a 30,000 square-foot facility at 2028 2nd Avenue Northwest in West Fargo. The building will be Wanzek's corporate office.
The ceremony took place at 11am and included words from Lexstar President and CEO Robert Leslie, Wanzek President James Henry and Mark Vaux, West Fargo economic development and community services director.
Wanzek Construction started as a road and bridge building company and over the last 40 years has evolved into a nationwide construction corporation building energy, process facility and civil projects across the United States. Wanzek currently has 1,060 employees in 17 states with additional office locations in Minot, N.D.; Houston, Texas; and Charlotte, N.C. Wanzek was acquired by MasTec, a Coral Gables, Florida based specialty contractor in 2008.
The design of the building will allow office space for over 100 corporate employees and will be located north-west of the current Wanzek Maintenance Facility. The estimated completion date is fall of 2013.
