Our Vision and Mission.

Building Green today for a better tomorrow.

Choosing Piontek Construction, as your home builder, will save you money while supplying you with a more energy efficient, safer, quieter and comfortable home.

Founded in 1994 as Piontek/Kopic Excavating and Construction, Chris Piontek set out on his dream of building ICF homes which provided energy efficiency, security and healthier living. While receiving a Bachelors Degree in Engineering from St. Cloud State University, Chris noticed the potential Arxx ICF’s exhibited in achieving his goals. Chris used his engineering background to develop construction practices which rendered a
high quality concrete home. By utilizing the speed of ICF building, Chris was able to produce a home which was cost effective enough to compete with conventional construction. In 2005 after seeing tremendous growth in Green Home Building, Chris

restructured his business and formed Piontek Construction Inc. Now after building ICF
homes for almost 20 years Piontek Construction Inc has become one the premier ICF
home builders in Northern Minnesota. Piontek Construction’s home building service area includes Duluth to Virginia, Hermantown, Esko, Cloquet.

How it Works

Superior green construction technology

Step 1
Insulating concrete forms (ICFs)
Insulating concrete forms (ICFs) result in cast-in-place concrete walls that are sandwiched between two layers of insulation material. These systems are strong and energy efficient. Common applications for this method of construction are low-rise buildings, with property uses ranging from residential to commercial to industrial.
Step 2
Stack and brace

Stack and brace LiteForm Flexx Block to any plan configuration- Preparing for concrete for concrete to be placed.

Step 3
Placing Concrete into the forms.

Once the forms are in place and braced and required reinforcement installed, concrete is pumped into the forms
