    Since 1947

    Brownlee Construction, Inc. was started in 1947 by Joe Brownlee Sr. and Tommy Kesterson.

Brownlee Construction

Brownlee Construction, Inc. strength lies in our knowledge and experience. Since 1947, we have developed two key components by which we believe has allowed us to be successful for a third generation.

Client Relationship

First we have a hands on approach and maintain a one on one relationship with our clients throughout the project. We do not have a sales/estimating/project managers system where there is a different individual handling each phase of the clients project. We believe it is about relationships and enjoying the process. Therefore, we are hands on throughout every phase. You work with who you started the relationship with from start to finish.

Quality Craftsmanship

Second we self-perform as much work as possible. Over the years it is our experience that the only way we can guarantee quality of workmanship is by doing the work ourselves. Again to us it is about relationships and enjoying the process and by self-performing work we feel we can control the project out come much better. Our experienced crews specialize in site excavation, concrete foundation, concrete tilt-up panels, steel erection (pre-engineered and conventional), roofing, sheet-metal and rough/finish carpentry.
