Brinkman Partners

Brinkman Construction: History & Recognition

Brothers Paul and Kevin Brinkman founded the company in 2005.  Starting from an integrated real estate model including Brinkman Construction (construction services) and Brinkman Partners (real estate services), the mission of the company was to integrate team expertise into the real estate industry and offer our clients creative opportunities. This approach, coupled with a staff of over 100 talented, educated, and experienced individuals, allowed us to accomplish that mission.

Now, the company continues to deliver that same level of expertise and commitment to clients by working from a strategic alliance. Through this, they leverage their partnership to best serve clients, but have separate missions and strategies specific to each business.  Today, Brinkman Construction continues to offer general contracting services while Brinkman focuses on real estate development and investment.

Since our start, we have been honored to receive numerous business and industry awards.
