Bruns Construction Enterprises, founded in 1951 by Robert Bruns, is now a third generation associate owned enterprise and a shared vision between seven brothers and one sister, along with many of their children. Starting out as a residential company digging basements, the Bruns Family of businesses has grown and adapted through the years into the world-class organization that it is today. Despite these exciting changes, the core values of hard work ethic, honesty, and quality craftsmanship have stood the test of time.
