Building Communities

BD Construction strives to be more than a construction firm, we work to make communities healthier, smarter and more economically vibrant.

The BD culture fosters and encourages staff involvement in community organizations like the Chamber of Commerce, service clubs, churches, cultural and human service agencies. Our crew participates in service projects for the community, including building a new playground for a local school.

As a leader in the construction field in the Midwest, BD Construction team members participate in the Associated General Contractors-Nebraska Building Chapter, a leading association for the commercial construction industry. Through ongoing training, our team members grow in their knowledge and expertise of the industry and remain current on construction trends.

Additionally, BD Construction has partnered with area high schools and colleges to help develop curriculums to educate students for life-long, rewarding careers in construction.

Mark Benjamin Building Opportunity Scholarship

The Mark Benjamin Building Opportunity Scholarship is granted annually in memory of former BD Construction president and CEO, Mark Benjamin. Buffalo County students with financial need can receive $1,800 toward the pursuit of construction trades at an accredited two-year trade, vocational or technology institute of higher learning in Nebraska. This scholarship is offered in conjunction with the Benjamin family, BD Construction, Kearney Area Chamber of Commerce and private donors.
