In addition, Midwest Constructors has a full in-house production shop that can serve all of your construction needs.

When industry veterans Neal Burnett and Tom Arnold founded Midwest Constructors in 2005, they began with a mission to help their clients better serve their customers through innovative, quality construction delivered on time, within budget and in a safe environment for all. Midwest Constructors has grown to a 170-employee company by continuing to embrace the mission of protecting the client’s budget, minimizing risk and delivering exceptional construction quality for the most challenging projects. Our attention to detail every day ensures that this happens. This is why so many clients return to us for their next project.

At Midwest Constructors, we take pride in our approach to construction and the successful projects it has brought to many owners. The Midwest Construction team puts strong emphasis on integrating the design and construction phases of each project, which allows for informed decisions to be made early and for immediate communication between all parties involved. When a project is complex, the schedule is tight and the budget is finite, owners want a construction company that minimizes risk and gets it right the first time. Our hands-on approach to managing and performing construction assures that we do just that – get it right the first time.
