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.

78% of our business is from repeat clients

The 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline

NGC believes our employees are our most valuable asset, and we wanted to highlight a recent update impacting all of us. Recently, the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline was enacted, which allows any person to call or text 988 when needed. This is important, as a lot goes on in our lives, and that sometimes we don’t share what is going on with our Mental Health.

This hotline will provide free, confidential, and 24/7 care for support for anybody dealing with a suicidal crisis or emotional distress. While this hotline has been around for a long time, the new three-digit number will help us to share this key tool with those in need.

All it takes is a mention of the 988 lifeline to those that appear in need to possibly save a life. The statistics below from our friends at the KVC Foundation show the mental health crisis that affects us all, and we know that this lifeline will help curb these statistics

  • In 2020, the U.S. had one death by suicide every 11 minutes
  • For people aged 10 – 34 years, suicide is a leading cause of death
  • From April 2020 to 2021, over 100,000 individuals died from drug overdoses

For those needing it, our friends at the KVC Foundation have made a collection of tips and tools for whatever your situation may be. We are thankful for all of you, and are here for you!






Our employees think like a team and act like people who want to make a positive difference within our industry. Get to know the people who are without a doubt our most important resource.

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.

The definition of team player, former college baller Lindsey is an important member of the NGC team. She prides herself on the relationships she’s developed with her coworkers over the years — and on being a woman who’s thriving in a traditionally male-dominated industry.

Lindsey Klug

Director of Organizational Development

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.

Katie Kock

General Counsel

Shannon has over 20 years' experience in construction law via his former work at a large, local contractor. He's a legal writing instructor at UNL's law college for night school, and is an avid motorcyclist, traveling across many states.


General Counsel

Eric is 6’5” and decided to wrestle in high school rather than play basketball. And it’s that kind of outside-the-box thinking that helps him excel in his role at NGC. He makes a great coach, too, helping to mentor others in his position as they grow and find success in their careers.

Eric Neff

Senior Preconstruction Manager

John knows a thing or two about preconstruction, planning, project management and relationship-building. And aerial drone filming! John has an extensive construction background, plus he enjoys fishing, outdoors, cycling, local barley circuits, and sports.


Preconstruction Manager

Jen joined the team as a marketer to promote NGC using media, BD relations, branding, PR and promotions. Jen grew up in construction and fused her graphic creativity to become an agent of the 'building arts'. Collaboration with people, learning others' stories, stewardship and championing NGC's entire project process is incredibly rewarding; winning bets to eat chocolate is pretty exciting too!

Sports fan and former Nebraska shot putter Taylor knows it takes hard work to be successful. And in his young career, he’s been able to accomplish a lot, thanks to his dedication, his skills, and his ability to take the vision of a designer and a client and turn it into reality.


Senior Project Manager

During his time at NGC, Scott has successfully executed a lot of very different types of projects. And no matter the twists and turns that may arise, Scott will tell you that there’s nothing better than the feeling of satisfaction that comes from happy clients at the end of a project.

Scott Meinke

Senior Project Manager

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.

Brian Semerad

Senior Project Manager

NGC has been lucky to have Kevin on board since the very beginning. This avid hunter, fisher, and college football lover knows that hard work always pays off in the end — like when he gets to turn over a project to its owners and see their excitement over what he helped create.

Kevin Frey

Senior Superintendent

Joe has learned a lot over the past 59 years, and he’s always eager to share what’s he’s learned and to explore new perspectives. He works hard to develop and nurture relationships. You could also say Joe is a bit of a hero; he donated a kidney when he was 20 years old.

Joe Hukill

Senior Superintendent

Creative problem-solving is a key tool in Tony’s toolbox: He prides himself on being able to handle a problem or tough situation and think creatively to find a solution. He’s an expert at working with subcontractors and excels at getting everyone to come together for a common goal.
