Estimator/Project Manager




Rick Burke

Rick started at Kelpe Contracting in April of 1998.  His experience in the concrete field has opened up our capabilities by allowing us to offer more comprehensive estimates.  Rick is responsible for the establishment of our concrete division, and still manages that sector today.  Rick provides estimates for both commercial and residential projects.  Common project types include concrete streets, parking lots, curbs, sidewalks, driveways, as well as slab demolition and removal.  Rick has worked with many municipalities throughout the years such as the City of Wildwood, Kirkwood, Crestwood, Des Peres, and Chesterfield.  He has also worked with Rockwood School District, the Government and VA National Cemeteries.  As a Project Manager and member of the management team, Rick oversees the general site and safety conditions of his projects, as well as coordinates all materials, work performed, and trucks needed to get the job done.  When Rick is not working, he enjoys being in the outdoors, reloading, shooting trap, hunting, fishing, four wheeling, and exercising.
