Gustafson Builders (previously HH Hackett) has been in business in Rapid City for over 30 years. This long-term presence in Rapid City has earned us the reputation of being a stable and trustworthy building contractor. We pride ourselves in repeat business due to our professional staff and expertise in construction means and methods.
Gustafson Builders has worked diligently to earn the trust and respect of the subcontractors and suppliers serving the Rapid City market. This relationship ensures that we receive competitive quotes for our projects. In addition, we find that when subcontractors and suppliers are overwhelmed with bidding opportunities, they choose to work with Gustafson Builders because of our past relationships.
Gustafson Builders participate in all types of project delivery methods from hard bid to design build. Because of our experienced and diverse office staff, we are able to take “napkin sketches” and provide the owners with a finished product to meet and exceed their expectations. This expertise is valuable in construction management projects to ensure that the owner is getting a quality product at a competitive price.
Gustafson Builders are experienced in projects that require a detailed paper trail. The Corps of Engineers is one of our clients. Being a federal agency, they are very structured in all aspects of a project documentation including scheduling. We are also an approved bidder for Wal-Mart projects that have very specific project documentation requirements. We have the procedures and processes in place to satisfy these stringent requirements for both the Corps of Engineers and Wal-Mart.

- Conceptual estimating
- Advice on cost effective construction methods

- Two week look-ahead schedules
- Software is Primavera (Expedition, Suretrack, P3)
