Alcon Construction, Inc. was founded by brothers Allan and David Cook. The business was started in 1974 as Alamosa Concrete with Allan and Dave as co-owners and Georgia Cook as Vice-President. Alamosa Concrete specialized in agricultural, industrial and commercial concrete work and metal building erection. To reduce the confusion of whether or not the company was a concrete ready-mix company, the decision was made to change the company name when they incorporated. They took the “Al” from Alamosa and the “Con” from concrete to create Alcon. In 1980, when the company was incorporated in the State of Colorado, Alamosa Concrete became Alcon Construction, Inc.
The company was built on core beliefs of honest hard work and turning out a complete well-built product. Allan and Dave had a three-part vision: build a successful company that provides for all employees, complete quality products that benefit the community and build long lasting relationships. As the company grew, Alcon became an authorized dealer for Behlen Manufacturing Co. (metal buildings) and Raynor Garage Doors. The company’s specialties grew from concrete and metal building erection to include metal building sales and erection, structural steel fabrication and erection, bridges and overhead doors. While the focus was always working in the San Luis Valley of Colorado, work was often also completed in Idaho, Washington and New Mexico.
Today Alcon Construction, Inc. is still a family owned and operated corporation with Dave’s son, Brian, now part of the leadership team. Company headquarters remain in Alamosa, Colorado. In addition to the specialties listed above Alcon now has several cranes and provides crane services. We also provide general contracting services including pre-construction services, design/build project services and construction management. Our project experience spans throughout the Western States with a focus in the San Luis Valley in Colorado. The company has completed projects ranging from $1,000 to over $4.3 million and over 90% comes from repeat clients. We provide commercial and industrial services in healthcare, education, agriculture, government and more.
