ADG Construction Services is a unique company founded by individuals that set high standards for
quality work. Collectively, the founders' and managing partner's diverse experience and multi-disciplinary background provide
clients a reliable, professional company that is not satisfied with anything less than complete customer satisfaction.
Co-founder of ADG Construction Services in 1997, Erik Chyten is an electrical engineer with an MBA in Finance.
When he was 16, Erik once commented to his family that he would eventually own and operate a construction company.
With his Electrical Engineering degree in hand, Erik began working in the computer and information technology industry as a software engineer.
He obtained his MBA in 1992 and assumed responsibility as the financial operations manager for Tandem Computers.
During his tenure with Tandem Computers, Erik applied his management skills and enjoyment for construction
to multiple small-scale construction projects for a variety of clients.
After moving to Austin, Erik founded a technology recruiting firm while making preparations for the realization of his primary goal:
the startup of ADG Construction Services.
Prior to moving to Austin, Mark Jensen, co-founder of ADG Construction Services, was a licensed, general contractor in
California. Mark always planned to be in construction (his father is a Master Craftsman) and began his career in 1987 as a carpenter in California.
His experience in all phases of construction from foundation work, general rough-in carpentry to finish work, through electrical and plumbing led him to obtain
his general contractors license and start his own remodeling company. He eventually partnered with a larger firm and worked as the production manager, focusing on the construction
of multi-million dollar homes along the California coastline.
Mark brings his woodworking talents and high standards for durable home construction to Austin and ADG Construction Services' clients.
