For over 50 years Yantis has been heavily involved in the construction of civil infrastructure across San Antonio and South Texas.
Founded by John Yantis with $1000 in 1965, Yantis has built its reputation by adding value to projects not only in the construction phase but being a team player in projects from the site selection phase all the way to completion.
Founded as a utility contractor, Yantis quickly grew into a full service civil construction firm with the ability to self-perform all aspects of civil work with in house crews and owned equipment. This type of work includes mass grading, rock milling, rock trenching, wet utilities, dry utilities, asphalt paving, concrete paving, street base construction, curb and concrete structures. Yantis has constructed well over a billion dollars of work on private and public projects for various municipalities, the Corps of Engineers, TXDOT and private developers across Texas.
Yantis prides itself of being a team player on the development team. Our well rounded team of developers, licensed engineers and construction professionals are regularly consulted to help with anything from site selection, builder recommendations for lot purchases, grading design, budgets, and value engineering. Just in the past two years Yantis has saved various developers over $2.5 million dollars in direct savings that go back to the owner.Yantis continues to manage the company in a manner that John Yantis remains proud of. Now a third generation company, Yantis also has high level managers that average over 20 years of development and construction experience.
