JE Dunn Omaha Experiencing More Optimism This Year

Sales, new hires, awards and project achievements were all on the up for the Omaha office in 2022, an all-around record year for the office. Since its opening in 2008 with just six employees, the Omaha team has come a long way and grown substantially, and is now one of the largest contractors in Nebraska.

Amid rising construction costs, labor shortages, and other concerns facing the industry, JE Dunn’s Omaha team has remained steadfast in their optimism and strong work ethic.

Facing these challenges head-on, the Omaha office has prioritized working through them to find a solution, increasing their efforts behind approaches such as incorporating contractors into project planning early on and, on the long-term end, educating K-12 students on the trades.

Over the past year, highlights for the office include being named a 2022 top contractor in Nebraska by ENR Midwest, followed by recognition as the National Safety Council of Nebraska’s safest company award winner.

An article from Midlands Business Journal includes an outlook from Superintendent Joe Hansen and Senior Preconstruction and Estimating Manager Colby Vetter, titled, “Optimistic Outlook: Construction Firms See High Demand Amidst Labor Shortages.”
