Welcome to K’apel Construction

K'apel Construction is a Native American owned and operated business enterprise located in Northern California. We have the knowledge, experience and resources to complete many types of heavy construction projects. Lance "Tyke" Robbins is a member of the Yurok Tribe in Northern California and owner of K’apel Construction. Tyke began working small construction projects for local land owners and his tribe while gaining experience from an established construction company.
"In time, it became clear to me that my goal would be to start my own business and provide careers in the construction industry to others from my tribe and provide a local contractor who knows the area and its needs. K’apel is the name of the village where my ancestors and my family originated. History documents the spelling as Cappell, but my father spelled it K’apel. This is the name I chose for my business in honor of my Dad and my ancestors." Lance (Tyke) Robbins
K’apel Construction is a California small business incorporating on April 18, 2006. K’apel is a certified 8(a) Contractor which has demonstrated through its past performance that projects are not only completed ahead of schedule, but there is no compromise in integrity, safety or workmanship.

"Respectability and Trust, combined with Owner Satisfaction, far exceed Profitability on every project we construct, developing an environment of open communication. Trust and exceeding owner(s) expectations is our number one goal, this attitude will lead to future work and long-standing relationships."
- Lance Robbins, Pres/CEO - K'apel Construction
