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. 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 pre-construction as well as construction work.

Our firm’s key individuals have experience in a wide range of domestic and international construction work including building an actual city in Saudi Arabia. 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 proud of our legacy of quality projects since 1949. With our on-staff engineers we are able to provide complete design services as well. We pride ourselves on the ability to maintain and improve upon very demanding schedules while staying within the budget. The firm is ranked as one of the largest design-build contractors in Missouri. We employ over 20 design and construction professionals. Prost has managed the design, construction and development of major commercial developments all over the state of Missouri and beyond the state borders.

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.

What we do:

  • Design/Build
