Decker Construction has partnered with an array of industry professionals throughout our years of service. These partnerships have given us the opportunity to complete construction projects with many unique features, time-sensitive requirements, and distinct challenges. We take great pride in the diversity we display in our project portfolio because every chance we’re given to offer excellence to a new client in a new industry is an opportunity to strengthen our connection within our community and grow as a construction company. 

Our experienced TEAM of construction managers have successfully completed government and local projects here in Gainesville, Florida, as well as projects for higher education institutions like the University of Florida. The range of projects and industries we’ve completed speaks to the ability of Decker to manage projects of many different sizes and expresses the expertise level we’ve gained to be trusted with high-level commercial construction jobs like research labs, health care facilities, and level 3 biohazard facilities. 

Below are testimonials from various happy clients, categorized by their specific industries. We are so grateful for the opportunity to work with each and every one of our clients and support meaningful projects that allow us to invest back into the community that we love so much.


Betsy Waite, P.E., CPRP

Director, Wild Spaces & Public Places for the City of Gainesville, FL

“Decker Construction is well suited to handle complicated construction projects.  The owners, Chris Decker, and Mike Calsam are consummate professionals with a great team behind them.  I’ve been particularly impressed by the knowledge and expertise of their Site Superintendents.”


John Weber, CPRP, CPSI

Park Operations Manager, Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs for the City of Gainesville, FL

“Decker Construction helped the City of Gainesville with the renovation of Oakview Park. This was a building renovation and park development project. Their team treated this building and park like it was their own. I was very impressed with their attention to detail, concern for the customer, and commitment to excellence. They took a hodgepodge of a building and turned it into an amazing center for the community. The craftsmanship was high quality, the customer service was impeccable, and the follow-through was what every customer should receive. I look forward to working with them again and hope everyone has the privilege of partnering with their team on a project.”


David Lucier

Director of Facilities & Purchasing, Levin College of Law at the University of Florida

“Decker Construction has a very professional team and is a pleasure to work with. When presented with multiple requests to halt work at various times, they obliged and altered the schedule even when it presented additional challenges. I look forward to working with the Decker Team again!”

Dwan Courtney

Director, Small Business & Supplier Diversity at the University of Florida

“Decker Construction is a valued partner of UF Small Business & Supplier Diversity. Their commitment and support of the Mentor – Protégé Program is admirable. Decker participates annually while still actively recruiting small businesses to be protégé participants. Once a protégé, Decker Construction has grown to now lead as a mentor.  Their insight and guidance are done with goodwill and sincerity, resulting in several of their protégés obtaining contracts with the University of Florida. We are truly fortunate for their partnership!”


Tony & Amy Meacham

Founders, Xtraordinary Joy, Inc.

“Decker Construction has been amazing to work with. They generously partner with our non-profit for rare genetic disorder research by not only financially supporting our fundraising but by actively being involved in all our events over the last 5 years. They continue to increase their involvement as they lead our executive board with innovative ideas and enthusiasm for impacting our community and reaching those with disabilities. Chris Decker and Mike Calsam have sincere hearts and motives, truly helping us break ground and build initiatives for chromosome disorder awareness and understanding. They prove to be respected and connected to their community, launching us further in our mission.”

“I could not have been more satisfied with my experience with Decker Construction and our medical office remodel. We were on a tight timeline and needed a beautiful, functional, and pediatric-friendly building, and they delivered!

I could not recommend anyone more highly for your building and renovation needs.”
