BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Engineering and architectural firms in the Bismarck area are finding ways to stay busy and even expand, even as oil activity has dipped and government budgets are shrinking.

Bismarck-Mandan Chamber of Commerce membership sales director Chelse Simon tells the Bismarck Tribune (https://bit.ly/1S6gfrC ) that engineers seem to be weathering the economic slowdown well. Moore Engineering Inc. opened a local office late last year, and Stanley Consultants is another new chamber member.

SEH engineering local manager Ken Nysetherof says infrastructure needs don’t go away when oil shuts off. He says the economy may not be booming, but it’s still strong.

SEH opened a Bismarck location in October 2013. The firm has grown into a 6,500-square-foot space.
