For over half a century, Nelson Construction has been helping clients build safe and secure spaces.  Locally owned and operated since 1961 when Vern Nelson started the business, we have grown from a small residential drywall contracting firm into one of the most capable and trusted providers of drywall, light gauge framing, structural steel stud framing, and insulation services.  As a forward thinking company, we continued to expand.

We incorporated our business in 1976 and became a Union shop. Our first Union agreement was signed with the Carpenters & Painters local.

In 1980, the current owner, Skip Frederick, joined the firm and took over ownership in 1990.

Today we continue to find innovative solutions to help us deliver modern facilities that meet the needs of our clients.
