Meet the Team
Don Stockell, President
Don has been in the construction industry for 42 years. In 1976, he started as a brick & stone mason while attending St Louis Community College and the University of Missouri at St. Louis, studying architecture, business and construction related coursework. Within a few years Don became a foreman for the masonry company he worked for. In 1984 Don wanting to learn more about the construction industry, took work with a custom home builder building executive and estate homes. He learned much from this experience about quality, detail, best building practices and workflows.
In 1986, the homebuilder he was working for retired and Don started Stockell General Contracting Inc. One of his first contracts was remodeling Algonquin Golf Club in Glendale MO. Don soon became known for his attention to detail and superb craftsmanship that he had acquired through his masonry and custom homebuilding experience. His business flourished as a result of many successful projects for the clientele and businesses associated with the Golf Club.
Through the years Stockell General Contracting has built large and small custom homes, remodeled homes, has built new and remodeled commercial retail spaces, offices, industrial build out work and has finished churches and libraries.
Don has a strong personal commitment to building quality, long lasting, energy efficient and healthy buildings while protecting the environment in the process.
