Mission Statement

Our mission is to build high-quality, fairly-priced products for the water industry throughout the southern United States. We value the professional and personal growth and well-being of our employees and job-site safety is our number one priority.

About Schier Construction

In the beginning, Schier Construction built water tower foundations all over Texas and Louisiana. After several years, we decided to diversify the business and concentrate on the Houston area, branching out into the construction of full water plants, both elevated and ground level. Now, over 42 years and 1,100 projects later, Schier Construction are a leading builder of water plants and elevated water towers throughout the southern United States.

About our Leadership Team

A native of Buffalo, New York, Jim Schier got his college degree in civil engineering from the University of Kentucky in 1969 and went to work for Chicago Bridge and Iron. For the next nine-and-a-half years he moved up the ladder at CBI, serving as a design engineer in the construction services department and a contract supervisor in charge of the company’s water tower construction in the southwestern United States. Additionally he earned a master’s degree in structural engineering from Memphis State University.

Brent Schier was raised in Houston and received a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Texas, followed by a MBA from the University of Houston. He spent most of his career in the engineering and construction space within the oil and gas market. After years as a design engineer, Brent moved into the business/sales side of several global Engineering, Construction and Technology Licensing Companies holding management and executive roles before joining Jim in the water plant business.

Born in Hastings, Minnesota, Don Maas started his career as an automotive technician / machinist. 8 years later, he made his way to Houston and started with Schier Construction as a field laborer. With his mechanical problem solving skills, Don quickly moved into a Superintendent role overseeing the construction of elevated tank foundations, then onto General Superintendent. Now with over 40 years with SCC focused on water plant construction, Don is over all field operations of the business.

Schier Construction has now been a leading builder of elevated water towers and water plants for over 42 years.
