construction contractor

Rolling Hills Construction was founded in 2015 by Stephan Acevedo and Zach McDaniel. After working together in EOD – Explosive Ordnance Disposal – at Fort Riley, the pair began a side gig where they put in fences and took on other small jobs. Both had backgrounds as a construction contractor and found they had a knack for tackling problems together. The pair agreed – it was like the scene in Step Brothers where they instantly became best friends – they clicked, and for it, their productivity flourished.

After a few years of part-time work under their original name, 2 Guys Construction, the pair took their business full time in 2017 as Rolling Hills Construction.  Ever since, the company has been serving the area with high-quality construction services to the greater Junction City Kansas area.

Team Background

Transitioning to Construction

For former military professionals, it was a transition that just made sense. In EOD the pair were charged with being subject matter experts on numerous technical tasks, and being a construction contractor is no different. Stephan and Zach solve problems by gathering information and putting it into action with structurally sound, detailed projects. No room for errors, just solid results. 

The team says, “Our mindset is wanting to see something different and finding new challenges. If the last people said, ‘It can’t be done,’ we come in and find the solution. It’s never that it can’t be done, it’s a matter of time and money and what’s worth it for the desired outcome.”

With a team of college-educated, multi-faceted problem solvers, Rolling Hills Construction is here to kick things off for you. We’re trained to find a solution. With a military background, we find a way to make it work, even when others might’ve given up. We find creative, safe ways to make your vision a reality.
