About Us
David Zanks established the company in 1992, after running Lockwood Buildings, Inc. commercial construction division for 12 years, as a small general contractor to construct new homes.  Most of our initial work, however, came from referrals and repeat business generated from past clients in the commercial and industrial sectors.  In 2002, we filed for permission to trade as Zanks Construction Inc. to better reflect the commercial/industrial workload of the company.  About that same time a natural disaster gave us the opportunity to help out a home owner by rebuilding their water damaged house.  That residential remodel lead to referrals for home additions and  home remodels including kitchen and bath remodels.  We now enjoy a balanced workload of both commercial and residential construction projects. 

Our jobs have taken us nationally, but our focus is serving the local Hampton Roads area including Hampton, Newport News, Poquoson, Yorktown, Williamsburg, and Smithfield. We are dealer for A&S Building Systems pre-engineered (metal) buildings www.a-s.com. Our commercial facilities utilize both pre-engineered and conventional construction methods.  Our residential construction utilizes both stick-built wood frame and modular construction methods. 

Zanks Construction Inc. is fully licensed, insured, and bonded. 

David Zanks, the company’s Owner and President, graduated from Virginia Tech with a BS in Mechanical Engineering.  He has 31 years of experience in the construction industry.  Prior to that, David worked for four years as a mechanical design engineer for LANTDIV.  He is a licensed Professional Engineer, registered in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  David has performed all aspects of contracting from conception and design to jobsite supervision and contract management.  He has personal experience on projects ranging from a residential bath remodel to a custom house to a control tower located 180 ft. above the ground to a 180,000 sq. ft. pre-engineered warehouse.

Our philosophy is to be a quality oriented firm that provides a single source for the client to look to for all their construction needs from concept to completion. 

The company’s policy is to remain small enough, and to control the work load, such that our president is able to maintain a personal involvement in every construction project, from design through, and especially during, final inspection. We understand that we are guests in your place, and that you have placed your trust in us to respect your homes or facilities.

In our design/build work, we recognize our responsibility as experts in the construction field, and endeavor to inform the client of the advantages and disadvantages to varying types of construction. Knowing the emotional and financial investment that is involved, the client is included as a team member along with our consultants and trade specialists. 

Our design-build projects begin with the client’s vision.  Value engineering is then performed to assure the client the best building for the money.  Modifications are then made at the client’s direction to ensure the building meets all requirements unique to its specified use.  This assures a high quality building or remodel, and one that both the Contractor and Owner can be proud of.
