Joe Funk Construction – Our History
Founded in 1956 by life-long Dallas, TX residents, Joe Funk and his wife, Byrna, the Joe Funk Construction Engineers, Inc. company was incorporated in 1965. In 2010, our corporate name was officially changed to Joe Funk Construction (JFC). Numerous well-known and landmark projects completed throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex over a 60 year history showcase the firm’s talents, diverse experience, and stability. Despite several economic downturns, the company continues to grow with a strong presence in several key markets including K-12 education.
Mr. Funk who is in his 90’s serves as chairman emeritus with son Marshall Funk stepping into the President role in the 1990’s. Today Marshall is the company’s Chief Executive Officer and Rusty Norris is President having been promoted into this position in 2004. Both Marshall and Rusty have long tenures with the company having started in the field to learn the business from the ground up and then each moving into positions of increasing responsibility.
Joe Funk got his start in construction soon after graduating from Southern Methodist University with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. He served in the Navy during World War II with the Construction Battalion. Before starting his own company, Mr. Funk worked for a structural engineering firm in Dallas and later for a contractor who completed Dallas City Hall and Scottish Rite Hospital.
A strong foundation was established early on by the values and work ethic demonstrated by Joe and Byrna Funk. These values of quality, integrity and personal care continue to have a major influence on the business conduct and people associated with the firm today.
