AUSTIN - DCA Construction was created to provide construction services to fulfill the vision as unique as their underlying philosophy, offering a comprehensive set of general construction and construction management services throughout Texas. DCA’s completed projects include both core and shell structures as well as tenant finish out in the following market segments of commercial office shell and interiors, industrial, retail, west campus housing and multi-family and hospitality.

    Over 80 percent of the company’s revenue is derived from repeat clients, which the company credits their commitment to service,
safety and quality on all projects.
    Founded in February 2005, Owners Randy Don Carlos and George Allen, view safety as one of DCA’s core values with expectations of zero accidents on any job. DCA employs a three-tiered approach to manage the known and predict hazards of construction work resulting in topnotch performance. In 2016, the firm promoted Kevin Foltermann to partner. Dustina Gunn Warner was promoted to partner in 2019.
    Endeavor Real Estate Group contracted DCA to construct the new 134,000-sf five-story creative office development in the heart of east Austin. 901 E. 6th Street boasts downtown views and offers exceptional walkability. The project was constructed within a 25-month period.
    The project required 4-1/2 levels of below grade parking and five stories of commercial office space. This hybrid structure consisted of structural steel and Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) construction with a metal wall panel system made from weathering steel and storefronts. The four levels of below grade parking was constructed with cast in place concrete.
    Due to Austin’s building congestion on the City’s east side, the project site had no room for staging. All deliveries were scheduled to arrive and go straight from the truck into their place on the structure. The CLT posed the largest challenge as it was shipped from British Columbia.
    The Cross Laminated Timber construction created a truly uni-que aspect to 901 E. Sixth Street. It is the first such construction to be used in Austin.
    Project Manager/Partner Kevin Foltermann, Superintendents Lester Surgers, Rudy Galvan and Project Engineer Samantha York maintained open lines of communications with the owner and architectural firm, Thought Barn and Delineate Studios, throughout the construction process.
     “DCA was glad to be part of the project team with Endeavor and all of the Design Consultant teams,” agrees DCA Owners Randy Don Carlos and George Allen. 
    DCA Construction is a full-service general contractor in Austin, TX. -cmw
