The Story of B&T Construction 

B&T Construction started as two friends in the home building industry with the desire to create a legacy for themselves and their families. With over 50 years of combined experience, Nikolai Travis and Dave Bean decided it was their time to show this industry just how skilled, confident, and team oriented they are with their custom home remodeling in Reno, foundation construction in Reno, or even new custom home construction in Reno.

Nikolai grew up skiing, mountain biking, and wake boarding in the Truckee area. In his younger years, Nikolai began learning how to build things with his hands alongside his father. These memorable times with his father lead Nikolai to follow his path into the construction industry. He wanted a chance to learn more about the industry and build something that he could be proud of with a company that people can rely on and receive exceptional experience from. Nikolai has a multifaceted skill set that includes framing, electrical, finish carpentry, and project management to name a few. In his free time he enjoys quality time with his wife (Loise), camping, sailing, and preparing for their first child.

Dave was born in Reno, NV and grew up off-roading and exploring nature in CA and NV. While building is still a passion of Dave’s (you can often find Dave onsite), he enjoys spending time with his wife, children, and close friends. In his spare time, you will find Dave exploring ghost towns, mines, hot springs and viewing wild horses. HOME MEANS NEVADA to Dave! His journey in piece work and production framing began in the early 90’s in San Diego, CA along side his father before moving to Reno in 1994 and continuing in his trade. After years of working for other builders, Dave decided to obtain his contractors license and start his own company. While operating D. Bean Construction, Dave was approached by Nikolai. He wanted to join forces with Dave and utilize their combined skill set in finish carpentry and framing to build high-end custom homes and renovate homes in the Truckee area.
