the prost
family's business


Design and Construction of buildings has been a Prost Family tradition for eight generations starting in Europe (the sixth generation had five brothers involved in the building industry). This extensive background in construction led Paul Prost to open Prost Builders, Inc. for business in 1949. His brother, Jay, joined him soon after in his dream to build a quality construction firm.

From Prost family to Prost builders

In 1993, Paul and Jay passed their dream on to Paul’s son, Vaughn. Vaughn started learning the construction trade at 12 years of age. As a Registered Professional Engineer, Vaughn oversees the preconstruction as well as construction work. The firm’s key individuals have experience in a wide range of domestic and international construction work. We are proud of our 74-year legacy of quality projects completed for our clients throughout Missouri and beyond. Today Prost Builders is a proud employee-owned company.


We are resolved to bring to the construction client a standard of quality and dependability unparalleled in our industry. Our greatest resource in the relentless pursuit of this goal, is the experience and professionalism of our employees.

Prost Builders is organized to provide a stimulating, stable, and rewarding work environment to our employee owners. Prost attracts, trains and retains employees to be leaders in the business of providing professional construction services to our clients.
