Minneapolis Regional Chamber

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.

“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.”
