A Passion for Quality

Doran Companies’ core values assure our clients that we approach projects with spirited cooperation, a passion for quality and respect for the people we work for and with. To live up to that pledge, and adjust to the growth we have experienced over the last five years, we have recently put great emphasis on organizational improvements designed to enhance our ability to achieve a standard of excellence that our clients, and the communities we work with, deserve.


Award Winning Tradition

We are proud of our award-winning tradition and our reputation as a company that brings experienced managers and quality partners to our developments. Many of our projects have won awards in construction and design, and in 2015, Doran Companies was selected as a Top Workplace by the Star Tribune. This attention to detail and the long-term needs of our clients has served us well and is demonstrated in the lasting relationships we have developed with clients and the communities we work in.
