Whitefish is the perfect place for Tyler and his family to call home as they enjoy the numerous outdoors activities that are available here

It is great to live in such a beautiful place and be able to build such a quality product. I am extremely fortunate to be a part of this magnificent team here at Malmquist Construction. Of all the places I have worked in my career, Malmquist Construction is by far the highest of integrity, honesty, and quality. I have never seen an entire construction team with such uniformity in their passions and moral values. We have created an unbreakable bond that reminds me of my own family.

When we decided to move here, I knew I wanted to continue in the building industry. It is a field that I had a lot of experience in and I really enjoy challenges it offers. Shortly after I moved here I met the MC team and saw their various projects. I was drawn to the company because of their enthusiasm for building, the quality of the projects and their humble approach. I enjoy being part of the team and look forward to future.
