Hight Construction is a 3rd generation commercial general contractor and a proud active member of the Minot Community. The Hight Construction legacy began in 1948 with Earl Hight who then passed the trade onto his son, LaVerne.


LaVerne founded Hight Construction here in Minot in 1982. When LaVerne retired in 2001, the reign of command was passed onto his son, Jay, our current company President and General Manager. Jay introduced new ideas, adopted the latest technologies and chartered a fresh crusade to hire and retain only the most skilled and dedicated team members in both field and office.





Laverne founded Hight Construction in 1982. Upon his retirement in 2001, he passed the company onto his son Jay.


Jay is the president of Hight Construction LLC. He oversees business operations and charts the company overall mission.
