In researching references specific to Beckenhauer Construction, I experienced an overwhelming amount of support and extreme satisfaction through conversations with their most recent CAH clients. In fact one Nebraska CEO instructed me to discontinue my search for references because Beckenhauer Construction was the best construction partner in the market and you will never want to use anyone else. He was exactly right!

Chief Executive Officer, Former
It is very seldom in today's environment when a contractor can finish a job ahead of schedule and under the original contracted amount, but your company was able do both of those. With the results and experience we had with your company, we will definitely look to use Beckenhauer Construction, Inc. for our next project.

We were very pleased with the work done by Beckenhauer Construction. We would highly recommend them to others considering building or remodeling in the future.
Pastor Arin Hess
The final project is exactly what we had hoped for. Construction is of high quality. The materials used are wonderful. Minor follow-up issues were handled courteously and promptly.
Steven R. Ausdemore
Projects are truly successful when all stakeholders are in alignment with the end goal, when the entire team is committed to success. The St. Francis Memorial Hospital is a great example of what can happen when that alignment with one goal in mind occurs.

We have had a very positive experience with Beckenhauer Construction. They have done an excellent job in evaluating and choosing the sub-contractors and, more importantly, holding them accountable for high quality craftsmanship.
