ROLE & RESPONSIBILITY

As the General Manager for Beckenhauer Construction, Austin Funk brings over 38 years of experience in constructing and providing operational oversight to a wide range of commercial construction projects. Austin works on continuous improvements to our policies and procedures that help Beckenhauer Construction provide you with the best possible project. Austin is responsible for oversight of construction operations including general construction activity and may be involved in pre-construction if his expertise is needed. A particular area of focus for Austin is working to support our project team’s efforts to expedite schedules, assure subcontractor adherence to schedule and quality, and utilizing insight born from years of experience to help avoid issues on our projects as well as helping to find solutions to issues that arise. Austin reviews project baseline schedules, monthly schedule updates and the Superintendents six week schedules in conjunction with site visits at least monthly to review progress, and work with the team to expedite project delivery.

EXPERIENCE

With 37 Years of construction experience starting from a craft level position and eventually becoming a vice president for a national construction firm before joining Beckenhauer Construction about 6 years ago Austin brings a rare variety of experience to the general manager role. Some of the highlights of his experience would be his involvement with major sports venues such as the Pepsi Center (home to the NBA Nuggets) or Coors Field (home of the MLB Colorado Rockies) in Denver, the Shell Grand Prix of Denver, multiple high rise construction projects in both Denver, Colorado and Milwaukee, Wisconsin, well over one million square feet of hospital construction projects in Nebraska and Colorado, nearly a million square feet of educational facility projects, well over one million square feet of commercial office construction, many high end condo projects in ski resorts and one of his favorites – setting a cooling tower on a thirty story building in a downtown environment with a helicopter! All of these experiences lend a little something to every project we do and Austin visits all of our projects regularly and is a solid support to all of our teams.
