History And Awards


“LANDSTED” is derived from the Swedish term best translated as “haven, place to escape from life’s worries.” When searching for a name for his fledgling company back in the 1980s, Mark Erickson wanted something that was distinct, meaningful, and reflected his Scandinavian heritage. Nearly two decades later, Landsted has grown into one of the most recognized and respected custom design/build firms in the Twin Cities area. In fact, the Landsted Companies have won more Reggie awards than any other custom builder east of the Mississippi. Our credo, “First we listen, then we build,” means much more to us than just a clever slogan. In fact, this phrase is at the core of the Landsted design/build process, one that has been continuously refined. We have based our process on respect for and careful communication with our clients in an open forum that encourages both efficiency and creativity. This is possible only because of the talents and years of experience our design/build team brings to each project. We are a small company in numbers, but not so small when our experience and accomplishments are considered.
