Chaparral Operators and the Next Generation

Family Owned and Operated Construction Company

We put Our Pride and Integrity behind Every Project We Undertake

Chaparral Construction LLC is a family owned and operated construction and excavation company based out of La Veta, Colorado. The family company was founded in 1963 by Dick Jameson. In 1978 Dick created Chaparral Construction as a partnership with his son, Ronald, who took over the day to day operations of the business. Ron's vision for the company has formed the foundation of quality work and customer satisfaction that has led to the success of the company.

Ron's two sons, Justin and Brian, very early took an interest in the company and the high level of workmanship that was performed by their father and his crew. They started very young to operate the equipment and learned how to work diligently in many of the projects. In 2006, Chaparral Construction became an LLC when Ronald’s wife, Cindy, sons, Justin and Brian became part owners.

The company has expanded over the years to include stream and river restoration and enhancement erosion control and mitigation, fire suppression and rehabilitation, forest road maintenance, recreation facilities construction, and mastication (tree-grinding) services. Both Justin and Brian are working in their father's spirit as heavy equipment operators and project managers.
