Our History

Building Brester Construction


It all started in May 1982 when brothers Ron and Don Brester embarked on their first project: renovating the Russel Stover Candy Factory in Lincoln’s Historic Haymarket District. The philosophy of the Brester brothers was simple: “provide good value at a fair price”. Gaining a reputation for high integrity, outstanding quality, and top-notch personal service it didn’t take long before their fledgling venture turned into a thriving enterprise, securing their spot as Lincoln’s premier contractor.

In 2009, Chris Brester took over the company from his father and uncle. Chris and his team continue the legacy of the Brester experience that their clients have come to expect; providing the highest level of integrity, quality, and service.

Today Brester Construction is building single family homes, hundreds of multi-family units, and a bevy of commercial projects ranging from hospitals to schools. Over the years Brester has been honored to win several prestigious awards like the BBB Integrity Award, AGC Build Nebraska Award, and a BBB Finalist for the National Torch Award.
