About Us

Ideal Construction is a full-service construction company that was founded in 2001 by owner Jeff Hartung. Jeff has been involved in the construction industry nearly his entire life, with both his grandfather and uncle being union carpenters. Prior to starting Ideal, he trained at the local Carpenters Union 444, turned out as a journeyman, and worked on and managed a variety of projects in and out of town. His drive and attention to detail is what has helped shape Ideal Construction into the company that it is today.

From even the smallest repair, to a ground up building, we can provide you with a level of service that is second to none from start to finish. As a leader in the Omaha area in office, restaurant, and retail tenant finish projects, our team will meet and exceed your expectations from the initial meeting to the finished product. We are committed to providing all our customers with outstanding customer service throughout your entire project.
