The Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs announced the lead contractors for the new state Veterans Homes.

Adolfson & Peterson Construction will manage the Bemidji project, while Knutson Construction will oversee the Montevideo and Preston homes.

These general contractors will begin soliciting sub-contractors over the next few months.

Federal funding was recently committed for the three projects, with construction beginning as soon as this fall and will follow an 18-month construction schedule.

Wold Architects & Engineers and Perkins Eastman are the architects for all of the new homes. They are submitting their designs to regulators for review and approval.

Once the designs are approved, the project construction schedules will come into more focus, said the release.
