The city of Henderson emerged out of business, being the U.S. manufacturing center of magnesium during World War II. With the population growing and high-profile corporations coming, the business opportunities in the city continue to grow and diversify. Henderson still houses the manufacturing and production of metals, but now also accommodates growing markets: education, healthcare, and senior living to name a few. And since the city is near to the wonderful Las Vegas, you can expect that the hospitality industry here is thriving as well.
A versatile city with a growing business market needs the best commercial contractors that can keep up. All 15 contractors in this list do so by catering to diverse markets and offering an extensive scope of services. Still, these contractors have stand-out qualities of their own. So, to help you get to know these firms better, we featured their specializations, experience, recognitions, and interesting work.
Burke Construction Group
385 Pilot Road, Las Vegas, NV 89119
Burke Construction Group has been doing it right, having gained the trust of huge business names such as Tesla, MGM Resorts, and Matter Real Estate Group. The firm’s collection of high-profile clients is a result of its more than 35 years of experience, particularly with large and diverse projects. The leadership team of Burke Construction Group itself has a combined 200 years of industry experience, which explains the firm’s connections and comfort of going from one market sector to another.
So far, Burke Construction Group has already completed around 850 projects within 26 states and works around 20 market sectors including educational, government, office, and retail. One of the high-profile projects of the firm is the Credit One Bank Corporate HQ, featured above. This 153,000-square-foot Class A office development is the first true four-story concrete tilt-up office building in Southern Nevada. And among this office’s many design strategies are the acoustical zones that promote privacy and quiet breaks for office workers. This project won three awards in 2018 alone, including the Office Building of the Year by NAIOP – Southern Nevada.
The Korte Company
9225 W. Flamingo Road Suite 100, Las Vegas, NV 89147
The Korte Company has over 10 services including architectural design, construction management, and EM 385 Training—but 90 percent of its work is design-build. The firm puts great emphasis on the benefits of design-build for businesses, especially that the client would only need to manage one contract instead of two. In the traditional project delivery, the client has to talk to the contractor and the designer who have their respective subcontractors and subconsultants too. In design-build, the firm handles both the contractor and designer.
Since 1958, The Korte Company has already produced 2,000 projects in the U.S. and has used design-build in 18 markets including the booming business sector of Senior Living. Being behind numerous senior living facilities nationwide, the firm employs evidence-based design to improve patient outcomes and quality of life. A perfect example is the addition project in Stillwater Senior Living Memory Care, pictured above. The facility now has a 32,000-square-foot addition, featuring 18 state-of-the-art memory suits, a sensory room, and a private salon among others.
3030 South Highland Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Martin-Harris Construction holds many experts. This self-performing general contractor specializes in design constructability, subcontractor management, and schedule coordination. The firm also extends efforts to reduce and eliminate construction hazards beyond the industry standard. More so, the company places great importance on safety by assigning a full-time Safety Director and incorporating a Safety Clause in its contracts. These efforts have garnered numerous recognitions such as being among the Top 10 Southwest General Contractor by Southwest Contractor Magazine and ranking as #1 General Contractor on The List.
One of the service expertise of Martin-Harris Construction is the construction management at-risk (CMAR). Here, Martin-Harris sources information from the client and the design team to make educated decisions on project cost, quality level, and timing. A perfect example of the firm’s CMAR project is The Gramercy, as pictured in this article. This high-end property is composed of existing finishes and rough-ins, so the firm ensured that each system is connected and working efficiently.
DC Building Group
101 E. Warm Springs Rd., Las Vegas, NV 89119

Our favorite Henderson project of DC Building Group is this Horizon Chevron and Liberty Tech & Tire Automotive Center on Horizon Drive. This business is a dream come true for the owner, being a combination of a gas station, a convenience store, and a repair center—and all within 6,158 square feet. The firm showed off skills in this project, from navigating through less than one acre of land for the auto center and up to using bright orange color for the store to attract customers.

SR Construction is proud of its “SR Built Process”. This process is shaped by three main elements: single-source responsibility, constant communication, and team approach. These elements are incorporated into the firm’s LEAN process where architects, consultants, engineers, contractors, and owner representatives work together. The SR Built Process also utilizes Building Information Modeling (BIM) which allows generating and managing construction data throughout the project phases. BIM results in reduced costs, faster delivery, and efficient coordination of construction documents among others.
The SR Built Process proves effective as the SR Construction has been around for 30 years, serving seven states and completing more than 1,300 projects. One of the fruits of this process is the restaurant of TV Celebrity Chef Robert Irvine. Located inside Tropicana Las Vegas, the 12,000-square-foot project had a surrounding main floor casino area upgrade and restaurant addition. The restaurant addition includes a dining room/bar, a presentation kitchen, and a full back of house kitchen.

5965 McLeod Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89120
Boyd Martin Construction works on big projects and also specializes in the intricacies of working on smaller ones. It follows that aside from new construction, renovation, and tenant improvements, the firm is capable of conceptual design and space planning, and interior design and finish selection. Through a hands-on approach, the firm is also able to focus on each project and at the same time, build close relationships with clients and professionals. That is why most of the projects of the firm are repeat business or referrals.

Design Builders Ltd.
179 N. Gibson Rd., Henderson, NV 89014
Locally owned and operated in Henderson, Design Builders Ltd. consistently aims to earn long-term clients in the city. The firm does so by truly understanding what the client needs. Especially with businesses, the company works hard to grasp the challenges of each market. Retail clients, for example, need the least amount of disruption, especially during peak sales hours. This situation would then reflect on the project management of the firm by making sure to work fast, efficiently, and in the least invasive way.
The mindset of Design Builders Ltd. works especially for tenant improvements. The firm is capable of working on something as simple as moving a wall or up to making a complete remodel—fast-tracked if needed. Consequently, the practices of the firm have attracted many high-end and luxury retail clients. One example is this tenant improvement project that the firm made for Pandora at Grand Canal Shoppes.

This Vegas-born firm spent its years mastering the construction market of Southern Nevada.

5940 South Rainbow Blvd., Las Vegas, NV 89118
To successfully achieve the project goal, ABG Builders suggests involving its team in the construction process as early as possible. The firm calls this move the “Best Bid” where the company thoroughly guides the client, especially in the crucial stage of preconstruction planning. Being there early also means that the firm can harmoniously work with everyone involved, including the design team. The best bid approach appears to efficiently work for the firm, having numerous high-profile clients on its list such as The Venetian, World Market Center, and Zara Ltd.
One of the interesting projects included in ABG Builders’ portfolio is the design-build of ‘Cigarbox’, a custom cigar store in Las Vegas. This store has been featured in Cigar Aficionado Magazine because of its collection of high-quality and rare cigars. And the humidor that holds these fine cigars is custom-built by the firm which includes extensive millwork, glazing, and tile finishes.
