Last week, a high school student signed with RCS Construction during the Associated General Contractors of South Dakota/Western Dakota Tech Career Academy signing ceremony. Five high school students signed with local contractors to work this summer. The program allows students to earn money while learning about the construction industry and earn college credits.
In 2001, at the age of 27, Chad Hymas’ life changed in an instant when a 2,000-pound bale of hay shattered his neck, leaving him a quadriplegic.
But Chad’s dreams were not paralyzed that day—he became an example of what is possible. Chad is a best-selling author, motivational speaker, president of his own communications company, and recognized world-class wheelchair athlete.
RCS Construction was lucky enough to have had Chad speak about staying safe on and off the job-site to work safely and effectively.
Fort Hays cut the ribbon on its buffalo hunt coaster on Friday, April, 23rd. A crowd comprised of members of Elevate Rapid City, residents, and even Nugget from the Rush showed their excitement and support for the opening.
The roller coaster portion of the ride opened last October for a short time; now it’s open all the way with the hunting aspect.
The ride will be open on nice weather weekends leading to Mother’s Day, and then seven days a week through September and weather permitting in October.
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.

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.
