About Austin General Contractors

After several successful years in residential construction, Jenkins started SL Jenkins Construction Company to return to his roots in commercial contracting.  “There are similarities in commercial and residential,” states Jenkins.  “However, the commercial business typically tends to focus more on schedule because time is typically more valued by the client.  While we have no problem meeting stringent schedules, we can bring additional added value to the project via our award-winning quality control methodology and relationships with the top craftsmen in the industry. Our 20 years in the business has taught us that details can make all the difference in the finished product…and without sacrificing price or schedule.”

Quality and integrity are the cornerstones of Shan Jenkins’ business model. He enjoys Texas Aggie Football, golf, fishing, and spending time with his family.
