D.L. Meacham Construction Celebrates 40 Years

/ Chad Meacham

For four decades and with the dedication and passion of three generations of the Meacham family, D.L. Meacham is proud and excited to mark our 40th anniversary this year. Throughout the years, we have been involved in some of the most exciting and transformative projects in the greater Houston area – and we still are!

It all started in 1979 by my grandfather, D.L. senior, after a successful career with Tellepsen Construction. He started doing light residential construction work and he and my grandmother, Annette, handled the business operations from their living room. Business grew with commercial project opportunities from local school districts for general construction work. Soon, the company started providing masonry work and hardscape projects for master-planned communities that were sprawling out to Houston’s suburbs at the time.

You might say D.L. Meacham grew as the city grew. My father, Larry, joined the firm in the early 1980s and I grew up with the company, officially joining after graduating SMU.

Take a tour with us as we highlight some of our past and current projects including Houston’s notable construction and hardscape features, master-planned communities, parks, bridges, recreation centers, lagoons and beaches. We hope you will enjoy it and join in our celebration of 40 fabulous years.
