About Us

Building better lives, Through integrity and pride

Fred Shaw had a vision. He imagined building better lives, building relationships, and building a better community. In 1974, on the foundation of Integrity and Pride, Fred Shaw built Shaw-Lundquist Associates Inc., a family owned business that would stand the test of time.

He knew that we didn’t have to be the biggest General Contractor, but we had to be the best to serve our clients and do the right thing.

Shaw-Lundquist is one of the top 20 General Contractors in the Twin Cities area and one of the prominent Asian American-owned Contractors in the nation.
