Swanson Russell Addition & Renovation

"The Super Big Non-Move"

This project was a 3-story addition to Swanson Russell's existing office building in downtown Lincoln. The first level consisted of mainly covered parking and mechanical and electrical rooms. The 2nd and 3rd floors of the addition consisted of new office space. The addition was a steel framed structure with composite concrete slabs on metal decking. The facade of the building was brick, EIFS, storefront, and Nichiha fiber cement siding panels. The finishes included carpet, paint, painted exposed structure and CMU, tile, millwork. We also remodeled the existing building. The reception area was completely redone with new walls, finishes, and reception desk. The rest of the building was completely repainted and re-carpeted. A mother's rooms was added in the basement. Some new electrical and data work was also done to accommodate new systems furniture.

This project showcases NGC’s ability to effectively collaborate with our clients to meet their project needs.This project was a hard bid job that came in over budget at bid time. The Owner elected to work with NGC over other contractors who submitted bids because of our “open book” approach. Our team was  willing to share as much information about the estimate as the Owner requested and worked diligently over the course of a month and half to value engineer the project to within their budget.

We left no stone unturned in looking for possible ways to save money, including items that cost thousands of dollars to items that only cost a couple hundred dollars. Despite the delay in the start of the project, we are on schedule to finish the project within the timeframe the Owner had hoped for.

Don't just take our word for it...

We have built our business on client-driven satisfaction. We believe in doing with, instead of doing for. For us, it is not just about delivering service but building partnerships with our clients to positively impact our communities for years to come.

  • Wendy Birdsall, Lincoln Chamber of Commerce

    NGC not only builds the highest quality of buildings but does so with great integrity.

  • Adam Criswell, Speedway Properties

    From the day they started the project to the day they finished, NGC personnel were professional, ethical, schedule driven and totally focused on our satisfaction. They are truly committed to constructing the finest possible building and they accept nothing short of this from their sub-contractors. Every concern we had was addressed quickly and thoroughly.

  • Patrick Phelan, DLR Group

    NGC's qualified team provided pre-planning with the ownership and DLR Group prior to construction as well as regular meetings and communication with the design team and subcontractors throughout the project. Their coordination efforts helped resolve the common day-to-day challenges of a commercial project of this character by utilizing technology and sound judgement.

  • Steven Hopper, Shamrock Development

    Their true open book approach to costs, information, and prudent reviews with the design team not only helped keep the project in line with budget and vision, but it also allowed construction to begin four months earlier than traditional methods. Their team provided a seamless transition from preconstruction into the actual construction phase.

  • Steve Schmidt, Frontier Bank

    What a pleasure it was to work with NGC! The crew was absolutely great and I truly appreciate their attention to timelines. The weekly reports via email were beneficial and informative as well.
