When Crawford Merz, LLC was founded in 1886 as J.W. Crawford Company, their vision was to establish themselves as a trusted leader among Minneapolis commercial contractors. With a few name and location changes along the way, two things have remained the same: our family-owned legacy and our dedication to providing the best construction services in the region. Focusing on a variety of projects from retail at the MOA to office spaces throughout the Metro area, our experienced team is always ready to serve the needs of our clients. Contact us today to learn more about our contracting services.


“Thank you ALL for an amazing job. Best build-out experience I’ve had in 40 years.”

“At 5am on May 29, Barton and the Crawford Merz team saved the day! I was at my wits end, having been standing in front of my store since 3:30 am due to two consecutive break-ins and lootings. When you drove by and asked me if you could help by boarding up, it was a huge act of kindness and generosity. I can’t tell you the relief it gave me to know the store had a chance to be secure again. If it wasn’t for you and your team, who knows what would have happened.  I greatly appreciate what you did, thank you!”

“Crawford Merz was amazing to work with. They were great at keeping us informed and remained flexible throughout the buildout. We love our new space and would recommend them to anyone who is beginning a commercial construction project.”

“This was a complicated project, due to the fact your team was technically employed by the mall, but working with us as the brand to get the store built. I could not have been more impressed with the teams’ efficiency, organization, professionalism and most importantly, openness to ensure the end-product was something we were all happy with. I would consider your team again as we open up more TOMS stores. Many thanks to the group!”

Stephanie Cocumelli

“Crawford Merz has been fabulous to work with on all types of projects. They have exceeded expectations to meet scheduling deadlines, budget issues, details, and even going above and beyond their contract multiple times. They have a great team and I will continue to use them on a regular basis as a go-to General Contractor for a lot of my projects.”
