Nicholas, a Lac du Flambeau Tribal member, joined the LDF Construction team in 2019. Nicholas brings to the team a wealth of knowledge in the construction industry with nearly 10 years of experience. Nicholas grew up in the construction industry having worked for his family owned residential construction company located in Lac du Flambeau from his early teens until he moved to Madison, Wisconsin for college. Working in the construction industry for a few years in the Madison area led to his desire to launch an independent venture. In 2016, Nicholas founded, Sky Construction, LLC and has been operating his own company for several years. Sky Construction is a commercial subcontracting construction company with experience in commercial and industrial construction and general project management. Nicholas is an incredibly motivated and dedicated part of the team and looks forward to once again serving his tribal community in economic, construction and workforce development areas for LDF Construction.
LDF Construction began operations in August 2013. Initial local hires included eight Journeyman Carpenters and two Laborers. The combined experience of our Tribal crew is a huge asset to the company.
Our crews bring a diverse skill set and are the core of the company's day-to-day field operations. The ongoing desire for the highest quality, attention to detail, streamlined production methods, and customer satisfaction are apparent in our work ethic and motivation. Continued strides for additional training to maximize skill sets and exercising the latest construction innovations shows that this core group of men are ready to take on the most complex of projects.
