Director of Project Management
Builder. It’s the word Luke Kunkel feels best describes Conco. Many of his peers in other companies, he says, have turned into fulltime brokers who subcontract every facet of a project and lose control of quality, schedule, cost and safety. “We self-perform many parts of our work with in-house craftsmen and are a true builder.” With a master’s degree in Architectural Engineering from Kansas State University and nearly a decade of experience at Conco, Kunkel serves a wide range of projects, from design-build to higher education and automotive. He is responsible for developing/retaining client and architect relationships, estimating, scheduling, procurement, project coordination and leading progress meetings. “There isn’t a set timetable for how fast you can progress in your career here. Conco is going to give you as much growth opportunity/challenge as your abilities allow.” Kunkel loves getting to work with people he really enjoys and appreciates how hard Conco works to make the construction process easy for clients.
