We are excited to start the weekend off by introducing Brad Olson! Brad started out as a carpenter and worked his way up to a Building Superintendent and we are so glad he is part of the RCS Construction team.
The City of Hot Springs condemned the Wesch-Oak Building that was built in 1893. In early March the Hot Springs council voted to demolish the historic sandstone building. The building will be demolished by RCS Construction this summer. https://rapidcityjournal.com

Happy Friday! This Christmas season we decided to have a small gathering rather than our typical Christmas party. We celebrated Dale Hansen with 20 years of recognition, Todd Srstka with 15 years of recognition, and our two employees of the year are Ronnie Hufstutler and Evan Walterman. We are grateful to still be able to share our holiday spirit!
We are proud to announce that we have won the Best Local Contractor and Best Concrete Company by Rapid City Journal and Best Rapid City Contractor by Best Contractor Awards. We have amazing people here, and we look forward to working on your next project. Thank you to every client and our employees who have voted for us to win these awards.
It has been five years in the making and the Buffalo Hunt coaster at Fort Hays Chuckwagon is finally open. RCS Construction began our portion of this project in March of 2020. The coaster will run through Halloween, after that the closing date is up to mother nature.
RCS Construction is honored to announce it has been named as one of Prairie Business Magazine’s 50 Best Places to Work for the second consecutive year.
Employees nominate their organization with anonymous satisfaction surveys and the magazine uses the survey results to recognize the 50 best. Topics in the survey include employer benefits, workplace culture and employee morale. This year, there were nearly 1,500 nominations.
Winners will be included in the magazine’s September issue.

The Club for Boys in Rapid City is excited to announce new growth to include a sports court, office space remodel, and Erickson building remodel in Rapid City.
Douglas Herrmann, executive director, Club for Boys says “the updates give us a significant increase in program space. We can now expand independent living skills in our programs. In addition, the sport court adds a place where we can expand outdoor activities that we used to do off-campus, now we don’t have to bus the boys to another location.”
Funding for this project was raised through a $2 million dollar Capital Campaign in 2019 with partial support awarded to the Club for Boys through the Rapid City Vision Fund and a grant from the John T. Vucurevich Foundation. The rest was raised through donor and community contributions.
