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. After graduation, Allen worked his way through the construction ranks at a prominent design-build firm in Orlando and was promoted to Project Manager by the age of 25.
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 a large national construction company in West Palm Beach, Florida. Allen accepted the opportunity to build larger projects as well as to make a geographical move to South Florida with his wife, Jodi. After years of working on commercial projects in the educational, municiple, and relegious sectors, Allen began working with a respected local builder on high-end residential work. Then in 2011, Allen and his wife decided that it was finally time for him to pursue his dream. Allen left his job and founded Gast Construction Group.
When Allen started Gast Construction Group in 2011, he had no projects and no staff, just a relentless work ethic and a never give up attitude. In less than 8 years, Gast Construction Group has grown from a one-man operation to a booming Construction Management Firm employing 25 construction professionals.
Allen's vision is for Gast Construction Group to be a sought after and recognized name in the commercial, residential and estate management markets in Palm Beach County.
Jodi is incredibly proud to be a small business owner in Palm Beach County and to work with her husband, Allen, and the rest of the Team at Gast Construction Group.
