Owner Rick Kellogg, his mother and his grandfather were born and raised in the Monroe, CT, area. After graduating from Masuk High School in 1969, Rick spent the next two years in the US Army where he became a Tank Commander serving in Germany. After the Army, Rick married in 1974 and raised three children in Monroe.
He worked for three years installing sewer lines and septic systems for other companies before starting his own company in 1974. Working closely with a partner for the first 10 years under the name D&K Construction, they focused on septic system installations. They also dug foundations, completed site work and worked on road grading and storm drainage projects. The company started with just a dump truck, a rubber tire backhoe loader and a trailer before moving up to bigger equipment including a larger dump truck, a bucket loader and a large excavator. In 1984, Rick purchased his partner's half of the business to become full owner.
For 44 years, Rick has served the Monroe, Trumbull, Shelton, Easton, Newtown and Fairfield areas, taking a tremendous amount of pride in the work he does.
