The NGC Difference

Built during one of the most difficult economic periods in recent memory, New Generation Construction Group was created with the goal of doing things differently in the local construction market. Though the timing was tough, the vision was clear: Focus on client relationships, utilize technology to offer innovative solutions, and provide services that are unique in the industry.

We have developed from a small local contractor in Lincoln, Nebraska, to a company that now employs professionals in multiple states across our region. When asked, our Founder and President will humbly credit our growth to a dedicated team who prides themselves on satisfying clients, and hiring people who willingly buy in to this priority. As our team continues to focus on collaboration and growth through relationships, our company experiences benefits of long-lasting partnerships that drive and build our business.

SAFETY spotlight

NGC Safety

June is National Safety Month

Every June the National Safety Council (NSC) celebrates National Safety Month alongside thousand of organizations and workers nationwide. There’s a themed topic for each week. Look at the segments below and apply them to your workplace and job sites. 

Week 1 – Prevent Incidents Before They Start: Identifying risks and taking proactive safety measures to reduce hazard exposure on important topics from ergonomics to chemical management is crucial to creating a safe workplace.

Week 2 – Address Ongoing COVID-19 Safety Concerns: As the pandemic continues, employers play an important role in expanding operations and returning remote workers to physical workspaces, building trust around vaccines, supporting mental health and so much more.

Week 3 – It’s Vital to Feel Safe on the Job: Being able to be one’s self at work without fear of retaliation is necessary for an inclusive safety culture. Leading organizations focus not only on physical safety, but psychological safety as well.

Week 4 – Advance Your Safety Journey: Safety is all about continuous improvement. Whether organizationally or individually, NSC can help provide guidance for your path forward.

Visit NSC online for June’s National Safety Month or contact Susan Booth of NSC with any questions. Visit to reduce traffic fatalities. And, please contact NSC for Mental Health First Aid Training along with other classes; There’s an action plan for recognizing behavioral instability, substance abuse and beginning an empathy dialog to help those suffering from the added stress of the compounding issues these last 18 months..

When he’s not playing with his kids or driving his 2015 Ford Fusion to job sites (yes, really!), Justin loves working with the NGC team to help clients bring their ideas to fruition. And it shows: Justin’s proud to say that for the past 10 years, 78% of NGC business is from repeat clients.

Sarah is one of those rare people who actually loves spreadsheets. She also loves baking, tacos, and Disney — just ask her dog Minnie. Being a part of the NGC team has helped Sarah gain the ability to adapt and learn quickly with a fast-growing company. (The spreadsheets are a nice perk, too.)

Vice President

Numbers guy Spencer knows his way around accounting software — he’s a CPA, after all! — but one bit of tech used to intimidate him: the self-checkout line at the grocery store. (Don’t worry, he’s since conquered that fear.) In his spare time, you can find Spencer golfing or coaching youth sports.

Katie loves getting to collaborate, create, build, and develop with her NGC team, clients, and partners each and every day. When she’s not busy being a team player, Katie can often be found on the links; her perfect Saturday would be 18 holes in the morning, lunch, then another 18.

Brian never expected to go from watching YouTube videos on wind turbines to actually constructing NGC’s first wind farm in the span of a year. But that’s his favorite part of working at NGC: the wide variety of projects he gets to collaborate on each year. He can’t wait to see what’s next.

Jen joined the Preconstruction team as a marketer to promote NGC using media, BD relations, branding, PR and promotions.
