Our Mission and Values

Driven to exceed your expectations and empower your mission through the buildings we deliver.

The Opus Group® is a family of commercial real estate development, construction and design companies headquartered in Minneapolis with offices and projects across the country. At Opus, we state our mission in terms of our client's goals because they are at the center of everything we do: We are driven to exceed your expectations and empower your mission through the buildings we deliver. It's not just what we do, it's who we are. Our associates not only build buildings, they help inspire, create and deliver meaningful spaces within which people accomplish their goals. Each word in our mission statement was carefully selected to reflect our approach with our clients, as well as our strategic direction and goals. This mission, combined with our vision and values, serves as a guidepost for every member of our team to align our work and actions. We strive to achieve it and continuously improve upon the experience we deliver, each and every day. I invite you to experience the Opus mission at work. Tim Murnane's signature

How We Do It — Our Values

Our work to achieve our mission is guided each and every day by five core values, which extend from the rich history and tradition of our earlier companies dating back to 1953. We are committed to these values, and they inform our actions and also serve as a measure of our success. To us, how we do our work is just as important as what we deliver and achieve through our work. We take pride in holding ourselves accountable to these standards.

Integrity — Do what we say we will. Be transparent about our business and follow through on commitments.

Respect — Treat all people in a fair and equitable manner. Work collaboratively and be good business partners.

Innovation — Bring creative solutions to our clients, our industry, and in our business practices. Seek to continuously improve in all we do.

Entrepreneurship — Be agile, creative, and strategic. Empower our associates to take responsibility, make good decisions, and be accountable for their work.

Stewardship — Act in a responsible manner with our associates, our resources, and our communities. Focus on safety and sustainability in all that we do.
