Dick Otke Construction Company, a local provider of design and build construction management services, is currently celebrating its 40-year anniversary.
Dick Otke founded the company with his brother, Louie, in 1974. Since, they have completed high-end construction projects in mid-Missouri including: Riley Chevrolet, Wildwood Crossing Shopping Center, Capigal Plaza West, Stonehill Office Park, Midwest Block, Edenton Ridge Apartments, Kwik Kar, Arris Pizza and Central Ozarks Medical Center.
DOCC collaborated with the Medical Center on overseeing the 7,200-square-feet project through the budget, design and construction phases. The end result contained a symmetrical “curved front, cultured stone and brick exterior” and a “standing seam metal roof and stone sills.”
The company recently coordinated the construction of the Habitat for Humanity building, which included the Restore and Habitat offices.
Partners Dick Otke and Gary Oberkrom donated the $175,000 lot for the Habitat for Humanity project, and the half-million cost was funded through grants and donations.
According to an official press release, the fully staffed team of employees, under executive team Oberkrom, Tim Hayden, Dick Otke and Jason Otke, has been with the company for 10 to 30 years. Among the staff is a full-time estimator to budget each project and partner
“We’ve become a leading contractor because DOCC offers a combination of full-service general contracting and construction management expertise,” Oberkrom says.
Over the years, the company has participated in a variety of construction projects: office, industrial, medical, manufacturing, retail, custom homes, multi-family residential, distribution and ecclesiastical.
Beyond the construction side of the business, the company also has firsthand experience in development, design, property management and cost of ownership.
As a Columbia staple, DOCC also supports community organizations such as River City Habitat for Humanity, YMCA and Relay for Life. They are an annual gold sponsor of the Special Olympics and an annual sponsor of the Jefferson City Relay for Life Walkathon.
