Bob W. Bass


Bob Bass has lived and worked in the construction industry for most of his life. His father started Bass Construction in 1957 when Bob was very young. Bob worked on weekends and during summers, learning the skills and philosophies on which the company was founded.

After graduating from Texas A&M University, Bob became an “official” employee of Bass Construction, and he worked alongside Nelson Bass for 30 years. It’s no wonder some of those positive traits rubbed off! Bob is often described as honest, dedicated and accommodating.

Today, Bob is responsible for managing the office and overseeing projects. Although his daily duties now include more leadership roles, he’s not afraid to roll up his sleeves and get his hands dirty. In fact, one of his favorite parts of the project is value engineering because he likes for his clients to get the most for their money.
