About Our Team
We're not exactly an Amish barn raising team. It's a colorful crowd at Phoenix Construction, but you'll love us, and you'll love working with us. From our Founder and Chairman, right down to the Phoenix crews, we are a tight knit team. A little weird...just like any other family. But we love what we do and love doing what we do with each other, and it shows in the work we deliver to our clients.
Price is what you pay... Value is what you get.

The alpha dog not only sits at the head of the table, he runs it.

Kaleb Brewer founded Phoenix Construction in 2012 after seeing the quality of work in South Texas and knowing it not only could, but should be improved upon.  By bringing a completely different attitude and business model to the construction industry, he has grown Phoenix Construction into a company that has doubled their profit every year.

With 15 years of development experience and 7 years leading construction teams, Kaleb has created a company culture that starts and ends with his personal life motto, best summarized by Winston Churchill: “Success is not final, failure is not fatal:  it is the courage to continue that counts.”

By creating a team that loves what they do and doing it the right way, he wants his customers to be as confident in what they receive as he is with the job he knows he is about to do.  Outside of his family, Phoenix Construction makes him “more proud than of anything he’s ever done in his entire life”.
