At GDK Construction, our mission is to create buildings that transform the visions of our clients into reality. The reality being a finished product that is proudly enjoyed for many years to come. Based on integrity and mutual respect, we build relationships with our clients, the community, and those involved in the construction. This type of  collaboration enables us to consistently exceed all expectations.


GDK Construction got its start in the mid 1980’s. Doug DeKock, a former practicing CPA, and Chuck Geenen, who had been working with computers to help streamline and automate the building industry, teamed up with Chuck’s father, Ade, to form a commercial construction company. Through their partnership, GDK Construction and sister company, Geenen DeKock Properties, were formed.

Geenen DeKock Properties began developing shopping centers and other commercial property in West Michigan. GDK Construction served as construction manager and general contractor for these projects. GDK also took on construction projects for a wide variety of commercial construction projects including churches, industrial and manufacturing facilities, schools, offices, and retail. Holland was growing; new companies were coming to Holland and established businesses were growing and updating.

During this building and development boom, Geenen DeKock Properties and GDK Construction earned a solid reputation with the finest area subcontractors. We maintain these relationships today. Subcontractors know that we treat them fairly and pay them promptly. This assures that we construct and maintain top quality buildings.

Doug, Chuck, and the quality team they have assembled has a knack for looking towards the future and working and strategizing to plan and develop facilities to meet these needs. For several years, our team has had a vision of expanding Holland’s nationally recognized downtown further toward Lake Macatawa. Currently that vision is becoming reality as GDK and Geenen DeKock Properties are working towards expanding Downtown Holland’s “main street” and its offerings.

Over the past three decades, we have helped many companies and organizations make their visions become reality. We look forward to continuing to do so for decades to come.
