Hear from our customers:

Bowes Construction was great to work with on our project. They did excellent work and communicated very well. They did what needed to be done to keep the project on schedule by adapting to changing conditions and prioritizing the work that other trades needed done to keep being productive. Overall, they exceeded expectations and were a valuable member of our construction team!

The services provided by Bowes Construction are always top notch.

During the construction and redesign of the 8th Street South and Main Ave South intersection, the communication and cooperation from the guys at Bowes was excellent. Even though my property and parking lot were not directly under construction, they treated me like it was with daily communication and updated on what was going on. The team at Bowes even made some suggestions to the City that sped up the project and got the intersection open ahead of schedule.

Bowes Construction has been a great partner to Bobcat of Brookings since we opened in 2009. For over 15 years, we have been a source of rental equipment when additional products are needed on their job sites. Oftentimes we will go months without seeing our equipment. We have complete confidence that our products will be taken care of while in their possession. Their employees are knowledgeable and experienced when it comes to renting equipment, as well as the service and daily maintenance of our equipment. We greatly appreciate Bowes Construction as a partner in the construction industry.

“Number 1 - You are always on the ball. Picking up the phone, getting me scheduled asap, being very communicative. Thanks so much for your help this season.

Number 2 - Bowes itself has taken care of all my material needs. And it’s hard for me to get material quick and easy without my own trucks. When you guys are my supplier, I never worry. You are always on time and all of the drivers are very good.”

“At Einspahr Auto Plaza, we have been doing business with Bowes Construction for almost as long as we have been in business. Bowes has been a valued partner for us on a number of major projects over the years, including when we built our current facility in 1980. Over the years, we worked with Bowes on lot expansions, lot resurfacing, snow removal, and more. We have placed a lot of trust in the experience and expertise of their team and they have always given us good advice. When we call Bowes for a job we know we can count on several things: expert advice, a competitive quote, timely project completion, and the job done right. What more can you ask for? They have also been very good customers of Einspahr Auto Plaza. We always like doing business with people that do business with us.”

We have worked with Bowes in numerous ways from subcontract work, general contract work, and granular material supply/delivery. With each project no matter the size or type, you can expect the project to be completed professionally and at a high level of quality, commitment, knowledge, and service. Bowes Construction exceeds expectations on projects they are involved in and has a reputation of being one of the preferred earthwork/asphalt paving/material suppliers in the region.
