What We Offer


NexGen is comprised of four core divisions, each with a dedicated team of professionals that have honed their skills through extensive experience and an unwavering commitment to excellence.





Our concrete division is the foundation of our success and the reason our customers trust us to complete some of the biggest projects currently in the U.S. We’re committee members of the American Concrete Institute (ACI) and American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC) dedicated to bettering our industry through craft innovation and continuous improvement.


We develop creative solutions that reduce material use and waste, creating direct savings for our customers. From planning and design to cross-team coordination and value engineering, we strive to deliver the best service in the industry, anchored by our experience and in-depth understanding of your entire project.



We execute a wide range of concrete services:

  • Shallow & deep foundations/footings
  • Floor slabs
  • Cast-in-place tilt-up panel placement & erection
  • Offsite precast provision & erection
  • Process pits & utility trenches
  • Paving & pathways
  • Rebar- & fiber-reinforced concrete
  • Sustainable mix designs





The backbone of countless successful projects, steel demands expertise and effective planning to properly procure, deliver, store, and stage—all of which occur before the first column is ever erected. NexGen’s steel division integrates with project designers, site leadership, and key trades to provide tailored services that meet our customers’ schedule and budget. Leveraging the industry’s foremost experts and a robust supply network, our team will ensure that your steel is specified correctly, delivered on time, and protected on site—keeping your project progressing smoothly and free from losses associated with damaged material.



Our end-to-end steel services include:

  • Design & design-assist
  • Procurement & logistics
  • Structural steel & PEMB erection
  • Joists & decking
  • Stairs & guardrails
  • Equipment platforms
  • Custom, in-house fabrication & installation





Broad capabilities and end-to-end project services are what make our Mechanical division stand out within the industry. Our mechanical team features a highly skilled craft force that is fully engaged before, during, and after construction. Our millwright, MEP, and process utility experts help to specify crucial equipment, coordinate deliveries and installation, and commission essential systems.



Our turnkey mechanical solutions include:

  • Millwrighting
    • Equipment assembly, alignment, & disassembly
    • Hoisting, rigging, & staging
    • Cutting, grinding, & welding
    • Rough & final setting

    • Gas & chemical
    • Steam & condensate
    • Hydraulic & pneumatic
    • Instrumentation
  • Platform & mezzanine ironwork





The final stages of construction and renovation can be among the most challenging. Move-in schedules, process systems startup, and budget considerations all converge as the project nears its end, which is where NexGen excels the most. We serve as an extension of your team and treat your facility as our own, down to the last detail.


While a dried-in building is hardly the final product, our Finishes team lives up to its name, delivering the tools and talent to complete the job and turn over a facility that you and your team can be proud of.



NexGen offers a comprehensive Finishes package to fully fit out a built facility:

  • Metal studs
  • Interior wall panels & partitions
  • Drywall, plywood, & gypsum board
  • Doors, hardware, & access systems
