The Nehemiah Way is an idea we strive for as a team. Nick was inspired by the Book of Nehemiah in the Old Testament when naming his company. Nehemiah was the original general contractor, rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem and helping restore peace in the city. Nehemiah General Contractors wants to make the construction process a positive experience allowing you to focus on the improvements we’re making. We understand that construction in someone’s life can feel intrusive and chaotic, but the Nehemiah Way means that all actions we take for your job are in service to the well-being of you, your family, and our work together.

Nick Muller is the owner and founder of Nehemiah General Contractors. Nick was born into a working construction family in Grand Rapids, Michigan. In 1998, he came out to Fort Collins, Colorado to complete a bachelor’s degree in Construction Management from Colorado State University. Nick has been working in the high-end, new-home and remodel industry for the past 20 years and has been building and remodeling in central Denver since 2003.

Andy Elkins

Superintendent

I began my work in construction installing windows with my uncle. Through the years I have done a variety of things, but I cut my teeth in Idaho framing houses. One of the things that drew me to Nehemiah is their work ethic and values. I am excited to partner with them on one of the many missions trips across the world. It is a passion of mine to help and give out of our abundance.  I enjoy working in Colorado and the great outdoors! On the weekends my wife and I spend a lot of time outside with our 6th month old and dog.

They are experts at what they do! If there is one cause that I am passionate about is serving people.

Kam Jensen

Junior Project Manager

Born and raised in Denver, I received my Interior Design degree from a local college and jumped right into the construction industry. The most rewarding part of my career is having the opportunity to be part of impactful transformations. When a vision comes to life it’s more than a new space – it’s a representation of inspiration, hard work & collaboration. My biggest passion in life is rescuing dogs, specifically the misunderstood breeds. Providing dogs with their second chance to feel love, know trust and have safety is the most rewarding experience I have had in my life.

 

Kathy Schissler

Director of HR/Talent Management

Believe it or not, my birth certificate says “Denver, Colorado”. I am a certified native! I love hosting women’s retreats with an element of adventure. Our industry gives me the chance to be a student every single day. I love how Nehemiah earnestly tries to bridge the gap between a constantly shifting economy and helping bring our client’s dreams to life within the shifts.  Someday I would like to take my grandkids on a drive around Denver to show and tell the story of the projects I got to be part of. I am passionate about helping people find freedom to thrive. Encouraging others with both practical help and good words is a worthy use of my time.

Our Process

Design Development

We take “measure twice, cut once” to a new level. After an initial meeting(s), we typically undergo a design development phase with you. We ask for a fee for this service which will range in price depending on how extensive NGC’s role will be in the design phase. We can provide architectural plans or we can simply evaluate existing plans for construction. We approach every job with a design-build mentality and work closely with the design partners involved to capture the details on paper before construction.

At the end of this design phase, it’s our goal to have architectural plans, a written scope of work, a critical path construction schedule, finish schedules, and an accurate bid for review. During the design phase, we will visit the site as required with our subcontractors to investigate the existing conditions. We do this to try to avoid any surprises that may affect the scope later. We invest a significant amount of time organizing the job on the front end which is why we ask you to invest in NGC during this design development phase.

Construction

Let the work commence! One of our Project Managers will be dedicated to your job. They will manage the subcontractors and are responsible for implementing your plans. Providing updates to the schedule every week, our PMs are an open resource for you. They will schedule regular site meetings with you and the design team throughout the job.

If anything were to change over the course of the project, regarding scope or an unforeseen lead time for a finish, our PMs will communicate the potential change with you immediately and review how it might impact the job. We strive to keep our systems tight, but customize the construction and communication process to fit your lifestyle.
