Multi-Family Construction

Communities that tenants are proud to call home.

Building a Place to Call Home

We know construction is just one step in creating thriving multi-family communities that residents love to call home, but it’s a crucial one. We know what it takes to make a project successful by traditional standards — on budget, on schedule, and with quality you can count on — but success is more than that to us. There’s nothing more fulfilling than driving past something you’ve built and seeing it enjoyed by the families that live there. For us, multi-family success is better measured by barbeques between neighbors, birthdays in the club house, laughs by the pool, and smiles shared by new families getting their first sets of keys.


Successful Projects





“I have found Brester Construction’s pre-construction services to be extremely valuable to us as we evaluate projects and work on budgets together to find options to bring projects in on budget without compromising quality. I have complete confidence in their early estimates and use them in my proformas as we evaluate projects. As drawings are completed, their staff continues to evaluate even the smallest details for constructability as well as value. Their professionalism in the pre-construction phase has made them an irreplaceable partner in our projects together.”

Brett West, Senior Director, Real Estate Development, Investments, Assurity

"We are so grateful that we chose you to complete the work. You all went above and beyond to ensure we were in our space by our deadline and that our finished product was high quality and something we could be proud of as an office. We spend most of our waking hours during the week in our office space and we could not be more excited about our finished space."

Tim McEwen, Senior Vice President of The McEwen Group

“The entire Brester Construction team, from Pre-Construction Estimator to Superintendent to Project Manager, has been a pleasure to work with. They consistently provide value well beyond what I typically find in a contractor. The relationship feels, and functions, more like a partnership than that of a typical owner contractor relationship.”

Gerald P. Kelly, Chief Operating Office at The Lund Company

“The experience of working with Brester has been simply exceptional. From the superintendents to the project managers to the owner, everyone is courteous, honest, diligent, proactive, cost and quality conscientious- simply said, they are professionals.”

Forrest Westin, Vice President of Agemark Senior Living Communities

"We consider Brester Construction to be one of the top general contractors in the area. It is our opinion that this construction company is well managed and thorough and follows through with all of their promises."

James M. King, Gene Lilly Surety Bonds, Inc.

"The most exciting thing about watching Brester Construction grow is that they’ve kept the same core values that they had in the early years. We have, as an office, put a great priority on that. They’re service-oriented. They have the same level of care as they had when they were a 3- or 4-man shop."

John Sinclair, Sinclair Hille Architects

"There’s no question that I would hire [Brester Construction] again. Not only have I had the pleasure of doing a lot of partnership construction with Brester, they also have been the exclusive builder on several other projects that we own ourselves."

John Schleich, CIP

Decades of Multi-Family Experience

Breaking our first piece of ground in 1982, our portfolio now includes 900+ total projects with multi-family complexes throughout the Midwest ranging from 50 to 500 units. For each one, we sat on the same side of the table as owners and developers to bring projects to life that aligned with the essence of residents, provided owners with long-term returns, and added enduring value to the community.

We’re proud of this legacy that made us a regional leader in multi-family construction and we can’t wait to see what the next decade brings.
