Brown-McKee, Inc. was established in 1955 as a Texas based design/build, heavy industrial construction and engineering firm building agricultural related projects including grain storage and material handling systems, cottonseed storage, handling and extraction processing facilities as well as commercial feed mill and feedlot operation facilities. During the early years BMI also expanded into public works and heavy construction including water systems plant construction, pipelines, pump stations and reverse osmosis systems as well as gas compressor stations and remote blend fertilizer plants.
Continuing to service our existing agricultural industry related customers through the early 1980’s along with the addition of the dairy industry; we also expanded our operations to include manufacturing and processing. These projects included facilities to manufacture and/or process fiberglass, composition shingles, plate glass, insulation, cement, lime, coal and plastics. In addition we completed several projects related to food processing, which included facilities for snack food, frozen meats and liquid bottling operations.
Expanding into commercial construction in the late 1980’s, BMI has successfully completed buildings for both the public and private sector including offices for commercial business, public school facilities and the communications industry. Thru the 1990’s we also expanded our pre-engineered metal building capabilities constructing 500,000 square feet of warehouse space per year, and since 2001 BMI has been a designated Job Order Contractor for Texas Tech University working in support of the Building & Maintenance Construction department of TTU Physical Plant while successfully completing over 100 individual projects.
Today, we continue to pursue both negotiated General Contractor/Construction Manager work and competitively bid projects in all of these industries throughout the United States, maintaining a dozen different state licenses and self performing work in the concrete, millwright, steel erection and process piping trades.
