Brant Nielsen


Brant’s work ethic started to develop at the age of four as he helped herd and brand cattle on his grandfather’s farm. As the son of a pastor, he witnessed the value of integrity throughout his youth. At fifteen, he entered the construction business pouring concrete by hand. These are the experiences that have shaped his work ethic and moral compass. Ask Brant and he’ll proudly show you the callouses on his hands, reflecting a life of honest, hard work.

At age 29, Brant started his own construction company built on the values instilled in him as a child—values that are reflected in the integrity and quality craftsmanship at NDG. Today, as ever, his life is centered around his faith, family, and work.

Why Customers Choose NDG Remodel

“I couldn’t possibly recommend Brant more highly. We are continuing to use him on some ongoing renovations. We are so lucky to have him and are really glad we picked him of the 4 we interviewed. He is attentive, listens well, brings highly skilled and pleasant workers on every aspect of the job, from framers to drywallers, from cement to tiling to paint. Fabulous team.”


“I chose to employ Nielsen from the positive experiences of Lu Cotta and Jane Ramsay with Annapolis Accommodations (41 Maryland Avenue). The exterior of their 150-yr old building exterior was repaired and repainted. I had the existing, shingle exterior replaced and stained on my 110-yr old home. Also, the front door, windows and gutters were replaced. The renovation was done professionally and with great care. The workmanship is outstanding and I am more than pleased with the results. I recommend anyone contemplating extensive and long-lasting home improvements to contact Brant Nielsen.”


“Nielsen Construction is an amazing company! I found them through a family friend and they have now helped me with multiple construction needs around my house. From painting rooms and installing doors to redesigning rooms and adding new additions, they are resilient in their work. They make sure you, the customer, leaves pleased. I will definitely be using them for any and all of my future construction wants and needs!”


“Brant and his crew did an excellent job in renovating our kitchen. He was always on top of everything and quickly responded to any questions or concerns. You would be very lucky to hire him for your job.”


“Working with Brant and his team (especially Randy, the foreman) was enlightening, even fun. Brant seems to find the top people in their trades, who take pride in their work.”
