Our Mission

With our experienced and versatile team, we strive to offer our customers a quality building experience with superior results.

Our Values

Integrity | We were founded in the Texas Panhandle, a place where a man's word is still meaningful and people are still committed to doing the right thing - even when no one is looking. We build integrity into our projects not only through our interactions with all parties, but also through our attention to detail and commitment to superior construction practices.

Collaboration | Over the years, we noticed that the various parties involved in the construction process sometimes made enemies of each other. General construction companies sometimes dreaded discussing projects with architects and subcontractors often resented failing communication that cost them money. We set out to be different. Architects are our allies and subcontractors enjoy our clear expectations and communication. Through close collaboration with owners, architects, and subcontractors, we've created a superior building experience.

Quality |  We don't just build buildings. We build futures. With that in mind, we are committed to completing projects that will serve our clients' needs well, for the long haul. In every element of the construction process, we maintain the highest quality standards possible.

Our History

GPD Construction, LLC. was founded in 2009 by current President Shawn Gillispie and Vice President Josh Palmer in Canyon, Texas.

Early on, we added in-house concrete construction crews to our team to serve our clients more effectively. We set out to become a one-stop commercial construction company and through hard work, attention to detail, and increasing experience, we have grown exponentially to achieve that goal.

Today we have grown to include a team of construction managers whose experience totals over 40 years in the industry and includes John Palmer, who became part-owner in 2011. We have also expanded our service area to include DFW, where our team members have decades of experience managing multi-million dollar projects.

We now team with Playa Design Group, J. Shehan Engineering, and Rhodes Architecture to provide our clients with a centrally managed design-build experience. As we take on larger projects, our meticulous, high-quality work remains the same — experience has simply equipped us to handle projects of any size while delivering service that cannot be beaten.

Our Vision

Our goal is to help our clients achieve their business goals by constructing facilities that meet their physical needs. Through collaboration with owners, architects, and subcontractors, we ensure that the ultimate results of our work launch our clients toward success.
