About Basin Construction & Drain Tile

Our Company History


Dwight Kopman started working in construction in high school and started Kopman Builders a few years later.


After 17+ years of building, Dwight became intrigued by field drainage and the growing need in eastern South Dakota. After a couple years of research, Dwight and his wife Stacy started Basin Construction & Drain Tile.


In January of 2012, Basin started out with a self-propelled WOLFE 400 tile plow, a few pieces of support equipment, and a crew of eight. Now Basin runs two WOLFE tile plows and a crew for each, along with many more employees to help with other services.

Basin has grown into a well-diversified company offering multiple services including: Commercial Construction, Drain Tile, Excavation, and Aggregate Sales.
