Commercial General Contractors of Choice for Development in the Central Texas Region.

We know when you are searching for commercial general contractors, you have a multitude of vendors to select from. You want someone with experience not only in commercial construction, but expertise in your specific industry and building types. You need a company that will closely collaborate with your team, interpret and execute towards your end goal, and share lessons learned from past experiences. Engen Contracting is the partner you are looking for.

Engen has a strong reputation for building quality projects that are competitively priced, while assigning the right team to each project for the best possible outcomes. Specializing in the construction of various types of commercial projects, many of our clients return to us for additional projects year after year. We understand the time-critical nature of these builds and have the experience and resources needed to meet aggressive, fast-track schedules while still delivering high-quality finished projects.

ECI offers a wide range of commercial general contracting services, commercial construction management, design/build and pre-construction services. Whether your project is a new structure, interior build-out, renovation, or expansion, our experience, knowledge and commitment to superior service will provide quality work and complete job satisfaction.

We invite you to view our portfolio to see if our project types are compatible with your commercial construction needs.

It All Starts with Intelligent Planning & Scheduling.

A thorough planning and scheduling phase helps to minimize overall costs by optimum utilization of available resources. It concisely outlines what to do and when to do it, beginning with the construction documents that define the project through to the individual trades required to achieve the desired result.

Immediately following being awarded a project, our management team meets to identify project activities, sequencing and durations. Supplementing this process is translating information from key sub-contractors and suppliers for a more pinned down lead, as well as duration, creating a more accurate construction schedule. As the building process gets underway, consistent referencing and rigorous updating of the project schedule is an essential step to monitoring any project.


Then Your Vision Comes to Life.

The Project is Finalized with a Thorough Post-Construction Handoff.

The ECI team strives to obtain proper and thorough documentation throughout the entire term of a project. We understand the significance of closing out a project and arming our clients with backup documentation for accurate material to be referenced well after the construction closeout has passed.

Documentation includes warranties, as-builts drawings, lien releases, user manuals, certificates of occupancy, certificates of substantial completion, and key final inspections. A comprehensive manual is provided electronically for all clients. This allows the client to distribute appropriately within its organization as a future means of reference. We work closely with our sub-contractors and suppliers to ensure all proper documentation is submitted for the purposes of a complete, and easy to reference, professional closeout package.

Over the years I've had the opportunity to work with many different general contractors. Working with Chris, Michael and the ECI team has always been an enjoyable experience.

Synergistic partnerships don’t come along very often.  Over the past three years, we have been truly blessed to find a group of folks that not only THINK and WORK like us, but TRUST like us.  Success comes when you find PARTNERS in this business that have the same VALUES and PRINCIPLES as your own TEAM.  The results are magical.  Chris and the wonderful TEAM at ECI have been that Fairy Dust for Albert Enterprises and Albert Restaurant Group.  We couldn’t do what we do in Central and South Texas without them.  Keep up the great work!

It was an absolute pleasure working with Chris and the ECI team.  They brought a level of professionalism and organization we’d never before experienced with a general contractor and their attention to detail and ability to adapt in the field was remarkable.  ECI has been a tremendous partner in our business and we will continue to look to them as we undertake new projects.
