About Us

Our Story

Since the beginning, the Linbeck story has been one of innovation. It’s embedded in our work, continuously encouraging us to take that next step.

Linbeck is a Texas-based, technology-driven building construction firm offering construction management, design/build, and integrated project delivery services. Using a suite of commercial and proprietary digital technologies and our unique Lean Operating System, Linbeck helps institutional, public and private clients mitigate risk and minimize waste to achieve optimal outcomes.

Since 1938, the Linbeck story has been one of service, innovation, continuous improvement, and development of our people. These fundamentals are embedded in our culture. Our staff longevity, talent, and experience–from field crews to senior management–contribute to the firm’s recognition for outstanding service and safety excellence. Linbeck remains a national leader in both applied technologies and Lean construction. In fact, Linbeck has been ranked among the top construction managers and building contractors in the nation by Engineering News-Record (ENR), Building Design & Construction, as well as the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), which has presented Linbeck with an unprecedented 21 Build America Awards, in addition to numerous state and national safety awards.

Linbeck offices in Houston, North Texas, and Central Texas. While our main focus is in Texas, we build with clients throughout the United States for both cultural and healthcare-related projects. Linbeck’s construction portfolio consists of healthcare, research and life sciences facilities, including a specialization in cancer treatment/proton therapy centers; cultural and civic projects such as faith-based facilities, museums, and performing arts venues; historic renovation and preservation projects; higher education and K-12 education facilities; community and non-profit centers; sports and recreation facilities; as well as a wide variety of commercial projects, including hospitality, multi-family, office, parking structures, and mixed-use real estate projects.
