Brief History

All Seasons Construction Corp was founded in 1973 by Jack Hake and Harry Kossakoski who had worked together previously. Their diverse talents complimented each other, and the company enjoyed rapid growth and success.

In the late 80’s, Ted Chivers and Ed Huber, who had been with company since 1974, were brought into the business as vice-presidents to eventually succeed the founding partners. Harry retired in 1991 and Jack in 1996 and Ted assumed the position of President, and Ed of Vice President. They also complimented each other in their diverse talents. Ed subsequently retired in 1998, leaving Ted as sole
owner.

Dave Dancosse came on board in 2006 with significant experience, having owned his own construction business for many years. Dave fit in well with his work ethic and shared philosophy and it became apparent that he was well qualified and interested in becoming the next owner. The company was sold to him in 2014.
