Josh K.

Assistant Project Manager

I earned my degree in Construction Management from MSUM in Moorhead in 2014. Since then, I’ve worked as a superintendent and assistant project manager for a few different companies, eventually leading me to Gardner Builders in 2021. My favorite part of my work is the resolution of a project. Seeing how the cumulative hours of everyone’s collaboration and hard work come together for the finished product– It’s a very rewarding experience and the spaces we build are sort of a monument to that effort that benefits the community. I’m a creative person, always up for a challenge, and look forward to learning from others along the way. 

Outside of the office. I can be found spending time with my wonderful wife, our baby girl, and our 2 dogs– Phish and Gyda. Moving to Duluth has been exciting as we learn about the city and all it has to offer.
