At Boyd Jones, we have a long-term vision built on our respect for the history and values of our firm. Our company was founded in 1924 by W. Boyd Jones, an experienced contractor originally from St. Louis, Missouri. Jones specialized in industrial and commercial construction, building such notable projects as the Adolphus Hotel in Dallas and the Anheuser-Busch corporate office in St. Louis. He brought that experience to Omaha, Nebraska, where he founded his company and constructed buildings across Nebraska that still stand as part of the historic fabric of local communities today. W. Boyd Jones was known for his integrity and commitment to customers. He was continually looking for ways to drive value, reduce costs, and build better. That same approach still drives us today.Our Experience
