KRT Construction has immediate openings for Carpenters!

Since it was founded in 1992, KRT Construction has maintained a simple philosophy: To build relationships as well as homes and businesses. And to provide the best in all we do.

With a staff of 15 full-time professionals, KRT is one of the most versatile custom contractors in the Omaha Metro area. As a true design/build company, KRT can design original blueprints or work from an existing home plan to build a new home, remodel an existing home or complete your commercial space. We build throughout the metro and surrounding areas, so our clients are not limited by location.

After 28 years and thousands of projects, we still approach each new venture with the same excitement and personal commitment to fulfilling our client’s dreams. Our customers’ ideas are the foundation on which we build every project at KRT. They are as essential to the construction process as concrete or drywall. We take the time to understand the unique needs, tastes and expectations of each client before the project begins.

What makes KRT different isn’t just the quality of our work; it’s the quality of our people. It’s our philosophy, our dedication, and our service. Most importantly, it’s in the details. The moment you sit down with us, you’ll realize there is a lot more that goes into building a custom home at KRT than construction materials.
