About Us


Est. 1978

Acorn Construction Company was founded in 1978 by Doug Houghton & Fred Zook. During our 40+ year history, Acorn has completed numerous projects in the Pueblo and Southern Colorado region. We have completed projects ranging from $10,000 - $15,000,000 all being greatly successful with many satisfied clients that have become reoccurring customers.


Pueblo Native

Founder Doug Houghton enjoying retirement since 2013, left the business in the hands of Brandon Houghton (President) and Melinda Tortessi (Treasurer). The two having been apart of Acorn for nearly 30-years, are also proud Pueblo natives whose families have resided in Pueblo for generations. Acorn supports our local community and the businesses that reside here.


Reliable, Trustworthy, Personal

 Acorn feels a strong responsibility to give back to the community that has supported us for so many years. Our solid reputation precedes us, and we feel a sound reputation is key to maintaining a successful and personable business. Our goal is to provide our clients with a well built, professional quality project, at a competitive price, that will serve their needs for years to come. This gives us the opportunity to develop client relationships that will remain and grow. We look forward to supporting your business, visiting your completed facility, and being able to shake your hand in confidence when we see you out and about.
