Late this fall Jim Braucher announced that Professional Design Group was sold to Power Engineers. Jim started PDG some time ago, moving into offices above the First National Bank in downtown Northfield. His operation grew and he took over another leased space in the same area. Northfield Construction Company has worked on many commerical projects over the years with PDG….Cemstone Concrete, Northfield Auto Body, Laura Baker Services, Carleton College Art Studio, Village Charter School, to name a few. I’ve really enjoyed the prompt, professional service that PDG has offered the construction community. So I was pleased to see that the firm will remain in town.

Power Engineers is a much larger design firm with headquarters in Idaho. They plan to continue the type of work that PDG has done and I suspect will be adding additional employees at the Northfield location. To help that effort they are leasing a third space above the bank. We are doing some remodeling to make the new space suit their needs. I appreciate that the bank continues the tradition of matching existing trims. We had the custom oak trims made to match the existing profiles in this building.
