About Us

The Penguin has always symbolized the epitome of nature's own energy- efficient design while at the same time evoking a mood of formal elegance.  This combination of functional elegance and energy- efficiency perfectly describes the philosophy and function of Penguin Construction. 

A combination of experience, versatility, respect for the land, integrity and commitment to the highest possible quality sets Penguin Construction apart as a firm capable of producing the best structures possible.

Based in Buena Vista, Colorado and building in the Chaffee County area for more than three decades, Penguin construction is a husband/wife design-contracting firm owned and operated by Robert J. Gioscia and Anne Wotipka-Gioscia.

Their extensive experience encompasses every aspect of construction from survey, design, through finish carpentry.  Because the Gioscias not only manage their own projects but have "hands-on" experience with the full array of construction trades, they are uniquely qualified as both builders and artisans.

The cornerstone of the Penguin Construction approach is a non-compromising commitment to excellence.  As Robert puts it, "Quality is not an accident.  We've never lowered our standards."  Penguin construction takes pride in combining the highest caliber materials, knowledge, management and meticulous craftsmanship in order to offer the finest quality custom homes possible at a reasonable cost.

The Gioscias take seriously their role in helping clients fulfill the"dream" or "vision" of a new home.  By establishing close client/contractor relationships, they have affirmed their reputation for sensitive attention to individual tastes.  Each client's needs and desires are addressed in an evolving process that assures an eminently livable home which is uniquely suited to their lifestyle.
