  • Aligning each job with the client’s business objectives along with the project’s impact upon the community and environment.

Darryl Samuels

Managing Partner

Samuels, a proud graduate of Iowa State University with dual MA degrees in Public Administration and Community & Regional Planning, took an unorthodox route in developing a niche in the construction industry by first starting out working in and managing city sponsored home repairs programs for non-profit organizations followed by several years in the industry. Having a brief spell in the Demolition industry, Samuels finally decided to go on his own and form D. Samuels & Associates, LLC in 2011.

Darryl is an active member in the construction community by participating in the Houston Chapters of the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) and Associated General Contractors (AGC).  He is an Iowa State University Alumni Association Board Member and a member of the Pearland Chamber of Commerce who donates his time and resources to local community groups.
