Company Profile


CK Construction, Inc. was incorporated in 2006 when David Kessinger, former Senior Project Manager of New Mexico and West Texas, and Rick Avila, former Project Engineer, broke away from Gilbane Building Co. after ten years of satellite operations in El Paso, Texas. Soon after, Alma Castillo joined the team, bringing her construction management experience from Clint ISD with her. The staff's background and thirty-plus years of general construction experience allow CK the unique ability to proactively identify and resolve potential complications, guaranteeing the highest quality end result.

Business Focus

CK’s business focus is medical and educational facilities. Although half of our work is generated through repeat clients, lump sum and hard bid work provide contemporary pricing to keep our estimating competitive in the El Paso market. Our strengths include on time, technically-savvy and high-quality deliveries to our clients. Many of our projects are for non-profit clients and typically include a combination of private and government funds. This aspect requires us to maintain tight cost controls, monitor progress, and conduct various accountability reports.


Our intent is to keep our personnel's professional needs met in order to maintain the level of excellence and expectation that has built our reputation. Common tools enlisted in every project include a working initial budget and cost-coded expense monitoring, detailed PERT progress schedules, and weekly project coordination meetings, all of which facilitate the exchange of information and encourage open communication.


We approach every job as a partnership between Contractor, Owner and Design team.
