Meet the Team
Don Stockell, President & Owner
Don has been in the construction industry for 42 years. In 1976, Don started as a brick 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 was working for. In 1984 Don took work with a custom homebuilder in Jefferson County Missouri. He learned much from a homebuilding company that always had quality and attention to detail as its first priorities.
In 1986, the homebuilder he had worked for retired and Don started Stockell General Contracting Inc. Don soon became known for his attention to detail and superb craftsmanship that he had learned through his years in masonry and homebuilding. His business grew through word of mouth. He has since built large and small custom homes, done remodeling work, commercial retail, office and industrial interior build out work.
Don has a strong commitment to building long lasting, energy-efficient and healthy buildings while protecting the environment in the process.
