About Us

 

Allen R. Gast Jr.

Founder and President

 

Gast Construction Group is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream of Allen's to own his own Construction Management Firm. 

 

Allen's passion for business and construction began in high school, continued through college, and has never stopped.  Allen attended the University of Florida and graduated from UF's prestigious ME Rinker Sr. School of Building Construction in 2000.  After graduation, Allen worked for a construction company in Orlando and he was promoted from Project Engineer to Assistant Project Manager and finally to Project Manager.

 

In 2005, Allen became a Licensed General Contractor in the State of Florida with the intent of opening his own construction company.  The timing was not quite right; however, as he was being recruited by the Weitz Company in West Palm Beach, Florida.  Allen accepted the opportunity with Weitz to build larger projects as well as to make a geographical move to South Florida with his wife, Jodi.  In 2009, Allen began working at Hedrick Brothers Construction.  Then in 2011, Allen and his wife decided that it was finally time for him to pursue his dream.  Allen left his job at Hedrick Brothers and founded Gast Construction Group.

 

When Allen started Gast Construction Group in 2011, he had no projects and no staff.  In less than 6 years, Gast Construction Group has grown from a one-man operation to a booming Construction Management Firm employing 20 construction professionals. 

 

Allen's vision is for Gast Construction Group to be a sought after and recognized name in the commercial, residential and property management markets in Palm Beach County.
