TCW Construction Inc. is a family-owned business derived from Tony’s Cement Works Inc., which started business in the early ‘70s as a patio, sidewalk and driveway construction company. My father Lorenzo (Tony) Delgado started the company with a pick-up, wheel barrow and sledge hammer and of course concrete finishing tools. My brothers Scott, Ryan and I purchased Tony’s Cement Works, Inc. in 1998 and therefore created TCW Construction Inc. and this company continues to follow the same ethical policies regarding the construction business that our father taught us. The company also continues to produce the same types of work only on a larger scale.
For instance, TCW performs all types of concrete work such as footings, finish floors, structural concrete and slipform paving of concrete roadways of widths up to 33 feet wide. To help facilitate the placement of mass concrete for roadway paving, TCW created Husker Ready Mixed Concrete in 1998 and this has helped foster our competitive abilities in all avenues of the concrete industry. TCW and Husker have collaborated to complete numerous projects together, such as the Lincoln Airport “T” Hangar Relocation which required the construction of footings, finish floors and paving two miles of 9-inch roadway paving on North 14th Street from I-80 to Alvo Road and 10th and Salt Creek Roadway for the City of Lincoln. TCW Construction received the prestigious AGC Build Nebraska Award for the successful completion of the University of Nebraska’s “Tractor Test Track” , a world-renowned testing facility which required a very specialized concrete mix design and had a very fast-track construction schedule and very difficult obstacles to overcome. At the end of the day, our client was very satisfied and our companies were satisfied as well with the completion of a very difficult project.
Also in 1998, TCW joined forces with the Butler Building Group and diversified into the pre-engineered metal building arena. Growth has been steady in this department due to the products Butler can offer and enhances our design build capabilities for our clients. Our most current projects include 24,000 sf standing seam metal re-roof at Eppley Airport. We just completed at 6,400 sf Butler building for the Army National Guard’s Black Hawk Helicopter maintenance hangar on Lincoln Air Base and we are currently worked on a 25,000 sf Butler building for a manufacturing customer with a remodel of an existing 16,000 sf building and providing roof and wall panels for their office addition. TCW has received numerous High Performance Builder awards from Butler Manufacturing and the prestigious Million Dollar Builder Award in 2012.
A new division of TCW is concrete crushing, which began with the demolition of Harris Overpass and has been very beneficial for TCW and Husker by way of disposing our removal concrete and returned concrete and turning it into a new green product of crushed concrete rock material. Several local construction companies bring us their removal concrete and we crush it into a reusable product, which drastically reduces the amount of space it would require at a landfill.
In summary, TCW Construction, Husker Ready Mixed Concrete and the addition of Butler Buildings has been a good fit for us and, with the addition of concrete crushing abilities, we have created a complete turnkey operation that allows us to compete in several different market areas.
