Serving customers from Eastern Nebraska to Western Iowa.

Lacey Construction, Inc. was incorporated in Nebraska in February 2001 by Chuck L. Lacey Jr. and Kari Lynn Lacey. Chuck serves as the corporate President and his wife Kari serves as the secretary and treasurer. The firm’s mission is to provide commercial construction services in eastern Nebraska and western Iowa.

Lacey Construction was always an end goal for Chuck. He grew up working for Wahoo Concrete Products, a company founded by his grandfather Robert Beaman. His professional aspirations were also influenced by Mike Collins of ME Collins contracting. Chuck attended the University of Nebraska at Kearney and graduated with a degree in Construction Management.

The first year, projects were completed in Wahoo, Omaha and rural Butler County. Chuck wore many hats in the early days, taking on the role of project manager, cost estimator and business development lead. The last 16 years has seen tremendous growth. Lacey, Inc. has worked in several local communities, from the cities of Lincoln, Omaha and Council Bluffs to smaller towns like Deshler, Herman, Treynor, and York. Lacey Construction has completed projects utilizing the design and build process, along with acting as a general contractor in the process and representing clients as a construction manager. Projects range from as small as a new roof for the local veterinary clinic, to urban condominium restoration in downtown Omaha. From conventional wood-framed libraries like Deshler, to larger, industrial facilities as seen in the Omaha Steel Castings facility in Wahoo.
