“About half of the work we do in this market is health care,” Sawall says. “We’re in every major system in town working for them regularly. Secondary to that here in Nebraska has been education work. We’ve done a little bit of higher education, and then the lion’s share of that work is K-12. We’ve done a lot of work for Omaha Public Schools, which had a big bond program last year, and we’re just getting started on a $70-million high school here this year. There’s also a ton of data center [work] that’s put a drain on local trades.”
