Tellepsen is the oldest and largest commercial builder in the Houston area. We have been building projects of significance since 1909 and are in our fourth generation of family ownership.
Tellepsen is structured into four strategic business units that offer a full complement of construction services. Each unit concentrates on a specific core business that allows Tellepsen to diversify our offerings while maintaining our focus on building in the Houston area. Our business units serve the following sectors:

All business units share the culture and values that define the Tellepsen standard of excellence. This standard informs not only our values but also the way we work with project stakeholders.
