Castle Contracting expands roster at Omaha office

Castle Contracting has expanded its Omaha, Nebraska, office with the addition of Field Operations Manager John Bruegman and Project Director Kurt Dulle to its growing local team.

In joining Castle, Bruegman merged his 22-year-old excavation contracting company—Bruegman Excavation—with Castle’s Omaha team. As Field Operations Manager, he oversees Castle’s craft workforce, fleet and shop.

Dulle, who joined the Omaha team as Project Director, has led Castle’s Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing/Utility Team in St. Louis for the last nine years. In his new position, he manages office operations and provides additional leadership and expertise for MEP/Utility clients, which have served as Castle’s core market in Omaha.

Castle’s Omaha office is located at 4209 S. 130th St. in west Omaha, adjacent to the office of McCarthy Building Companies. Since 2014, Castle has operated as a wholly owned subsidiary of McCarthy Holdings, Inc.

Founded in 1995, the $80 million company chose Omaha as its first permanent location outside St. Louis after overseeing excavation and utilities work for the Omaha VA Ambulatory Care Center.

Building on that success, Castle has continued to expand its local presence by excavating for local mechanical and electrical contractors on numerous projects, including Clearway Energy distribution lines, NexCore medical office buildings, Gretna East High School, the General Fire & Safety office building and Gretna Crossing Park Community Recreational and Aquatic Center.
