Melde Gives Back

Melde Construction Company

Melde Construction Company exists to improve people’s lives. We collaborate with like-minded clients, design firms, and trade partners in the construction of unique spaces. We behave with humility, curiosity, diligence, and confidence. We believe our success will continue as we put others first, remain perpetually relevant, and execute best practices. We believe in a better construction process, one where you will LOVE YOUR HOME AND ENJOY THE JOURNEY.

Our History - In 1980, Leon Melde started Melde Construction Company out of the back of his pick-up truck. As the architecture scene in Austin began to emerge, Melde locked arms with many nationally recognized firms at the front lines of the design frontier. In 2016, Bernie and Leslie Calcote became the proud new owners of the company after coming to work for Melde in 2008. Bernie and Leslie are still great friends with Leon and his wife Karla, who now live on Lake LBJ enjoying their retirement.

Our Future - We are just getting started! Follow us HERE to keep up with the story.
