Dakota was founded by a Professional Engineer, Mike Wan, and a Professional Geologist, Wenbin Yuan. Both sought to fill in the gap between specialized engineering firms who do not have contracting arms, and small contractors who do not have technical support capabilities. Dakota succeeded in filling in this gap and has provided combined general contracting and technical services for the past 26 years.
