Construction Safety Week 2021
Construction Safety Week 20215/5/2021
Safety is arguably one of the most important aspects of construction activity, and yet the least recognized. For this Construction Safety Week, we joined firms across our industry to raise awareness about the multiple ways we prioritize accident prevention and sound decision making on our sites. Safety is more than a hard hat, gloves, and a vest—it is a lifestyle that encompasses nutrition, hygiene, sleep habits, and presence of mind on the job. Deep breathing might be just as important as steel-toed shoes, and our dedicated safety crew ensures that every person under the Hausmann umbrella has access to what they need to create functioning jobsites that send everyone home each night. At Hausmann, we build safety into everything we do.

The facility will include state-of-the-art classrooms, conferencing areas, one large lecture hall, and administrative/staff offices, with technology integrated throughout.
Nebraska Pain Groundbreaking
Nebraska Pain Groundbreaking4/8/2021
After serving the Lincoln community for the past three years, the Nebraska Pain Institute is progressing into a 38,000 square foot, two-story clinic to enhance their pain analysis and treatment offerings, and we are happy to be their partner! To celebrate, the institute held a groundbreaking ceremony on April 1st at the construction site with Davis Design and Hausmann personnel. Offering the widest array of pain treatment options in the state, Dr. C. Weston Whitten began the practice to help Nebraskans suffering from chronic pain ‘get back to the good life.’ This project is an important step forward in providing comprehensive pain analysis and innovative treatment strategy to patients. The structure will include an expanded clinic, an ambulatory surgery center, and lease space for additional tenants, with expected completion in mid-2022.
Women in Construction Week
Women in Construction Week3/9/2021
Beginning on International Women’s Day, the National Association for Women in Construction celebrates Women in Construction Week each year to highlight the contribution of women to the construction industry and raise awareness for job opportunities. The women of Hausmann Construction provide vital leadership in a variety of disciplines within our firm, including accounting, marketing, human resources, contracts, project management, administration, legal, and site supervision. They are an integral part of our firm’s success, and this year, we chose to celebrate them with project tours in the Lincoln community so they could build connections with each other and with the final products of years of detailed efforts. We couldn’t #buildHCI without each of you!
