Kirksey Austin

Kirksey Austin opened in May of 2018 after serving Central Texas for over 20 years. The office is Kirksey's first expansion in the state and is well-positioned to serve our Austin and San Antonio clients, as well as the surrounding areas. 

Executive Vice Presidents Kathleen Jircik, Benito Guerrier, and David Dalton lead the Austin office. Their time together in Houston at the company headquarters ensures continuity of our standards, culture, and expertise at our Central Texas location. Kirksey Austin opened with nearly $500 million of work underway and expanded quickly. The dedicated Austin employees work on projects across market sectors, including commercial, education, healthcare, government projects, and more. Our Austin project managers, architects, and interior designers' diverse expertise positions the firm to successfully design and complete any project type. 

As the Central Texas market has grown, so has our Austin team! After three years of growth, we've moved to an exciting location in East Austin at Springdale General. We are currently hiring for several positions in our Austin office.
